Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the most wanted players in football and it appears the Gabonese has another admirer with Corriere dello Sport reporting Arsenal failed with a mega-bid last summer.
The Gunners tabled an £80 million offer for the Borussia Dortmund sensation, who has struck 14 goals in 14 games this season.
The Rome-based publication also reveals Napoli were interested in the 27-year-old, but the Bundesliga club also vehemently rejected any talks for their prized asset.
Meanwhile, Hector Bellerin has ended speculation that he could join Pep Guardiola’s revolution at Manchester City or return home to Barcelona with the Mirror reporting the 21-year-old has signed a six-year contract extension.
The Spanish right-back will pen terms of £100,000 per week, meaning his new deal is worth more than £30m.
Bellerin has been a sensation since breaking into the Gunners’ first team and has quickly become a member of the senior Spanish national team.
Arsene Wenger believes he has the right-back of the future and hopes Bellerin will be followed by Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in committing their futures to the Emirates.
