Friday Round Up…

News, Round-Up

Danny Welbz-Back…

Danny Welbeck looks like he is well on his way to recovery after being pictured on the official club website training with a ball at our meaningless friendly training camp in Dubai.

Welbeck was injured against Sporting Lisbon back in November and these photos could suggest he may yet play a part in the final part of our season.

Unsurprisingly Mesut Ozil isn’t ill this week and has also made it to Dubai…


Lichtsteiner Hints at Departure…

Stephan Lichtsteiner has said he may leave Arsenal in the summer to pursue more first team opportunities elsewhere. The Swiss international has started 16 times, 8 league, 8 cup and made 4 sub appearances since joining last summer on a free transfer.

He said in an interview with Neue Zurcher Zeitung:

“Things have been OK this season, but if the manager tells me that he won’t be counting on me next season then I’ll have to think about my future…”


Torreira Also Hints at Departure…

Lucas Torreira could make a move to Italy according to his Dad who said via Calciomercato:

“I have to say he is happy at Arsenal. Obviously, Lucas is very fond of Italian football, where he grew up, and might return to Italy in future. You can never say never, so it’s possible he could come back to this marvellous country (Italy) and, why not to Napoli or another club that makes an offer?”

Torreira will miss our gruelling springtime training camp in Dubai and is heading to play in the China Cup with Uruguay. He won’t be in a rush to get back either as he is suspended for our game with Newcastle a week on Monday after his harsh red card during our almost-win over Spurs.


Palace Game Travel Alert…

Our game on Easter Sunday (April 21st) could be affected by some railway work and London Euston will be closed so for the love of God, and all that is good, check before you travel for heaven’s sake.
