Was the Arsenal manager right to risk injury in Leicester draw?

Arsene Wenger has revealed that he took a risk fielding Laurent Koscielny for Arsenal against Leicester City after he picked up a knock on Friday.

Could Arsenal be set for a big boost for Liverpool opener?

Arsenal trio Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny all returned to training today, four days before the trip to Liverpool, and could well be fast-tracked into the playing squad.

Far from it in fact, because I think the two French Gunners have acquitted themselves admirably for Les Bleus this summer.

Ozil reaches out to Bronze Boot winning Arsenal team-mate

Mesut Ozil sent out a heartfelt tweet to club team-mates Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, who were part of the losing French team last night.

France were beaten by Portugal in extra time, thanks to a fantastic long-distance strike by Eder, and will have to find a way to put the pain of that behind them before re-joining their respective club sides in the coming weeks.

Why Euro 2016 could help Arsenal seal Varane transfer from Real Madrid

Arsenal are one of the many clubs in the Premier League and around Europe that have been linked with the possible signing of the Real Madrid and France international star Raphael Varane, but with the young centre back regularly being talked about as one of the most talented and promising young players in the world over the last few years I never really took much notice of those Arsenal transfer rumours.
