Arsenal hold new contract talks with star player amid Ivan Toney transfer admission


The international break is into its final few days and that means Arsenal are back in Premier League action again very soon. The next clash will be next Saturday, where the Gunners are making the short trip across London to Stamford Bridge, taking on London rivals Chelsea.

The north London outfit will be hopeful that Bukayo Saka, William Saliba and Leandro Trossard will be back from injury in time for the clash. Elsewhere, work is beginning to take place over the January transfer window, with rumours surrounding a striker signing and a new contract for a key star.
