Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s hopes of signing Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi have received a massive blow, with the Serie A giants understood to have rejected the north Londoners’ bid for the player.

Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed that he was not 100% match fit during the 1-0 win over Newcastle United, which is why he was not able to perform at his very best in the game.
The Englishman was quoted telling his side’s official website after the game: “I felt a little bit off the pace. The last time I started a match was three weeks ago and you can lose a bit of match fitness in that time. That’s what I felt like today. In spells I showed what I can do but overall I think I was a little bit off the pace.”
Arsenal ace Theo Walcott has said that he expects great things from the Gunners this season, going by the kind of quality that they have in their squad.
The Englishman was quoted telling Arsenal Player: “I’ve been very patient since my knee injury and just want to play football for this team because I feel like we can go places this year.”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has pointed out that it was important for his side to win their match against Newcastle United at St. James’ Park today as it has helped them in their attempts to improve upon their start to the season. The north London giants won the match with a scoreline of 1-0.
The Frenchman was quoted telling reporters after the game: “It was important. We know we’ll turn it round at home so it was important mathematically not to drop points today, not to be too far from the top teams. It was important mentally as well because we dropped points at home.”
