Under former manager José Mourinho, Rose was relegated from the first team and was no longer playing under the Portuguese manager. He was told by the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss that he was free to look for another club as he would not be getting more chances under him.

The 31-year-old has cut a frustrated figure with the Gunners this term with manager Unai Emery reluctant to play him regularly.


Ozil has made just two appearances since the beginning of the campaign and Ornstein has now revealed that the German’s exclusion could be due to the GPS data provided during training sessions, he responded in a Q&A session for The Athletic: “I’m told the GPS data is indeed one of the factors.

Charlie Nicholas fancies Arsenal to make the top four next season

Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas has backed the Gunners to make the push for the top four after a successful summer of transfer business. The north London giants were expected to struggle in the transfer market with the alleged budget of £45m but they made a few shrewd signings with the means of staggered payments to the respective clubs.


Among those, Nicolas Pepe arrived on a club-record fee of £72m from Lille and Nicholas believes the Gunners could finally break into the Champions League places and finish third even, he said: “The Gunners surprised me with the signing of Nicolas Pepe, they will be very exciting going forward after that. I am glad that Laurent Koscielny has been shipped out, Carl Jenkinson has gone so the ones Arsenal don’t need are going. Is David Luiz better than what Arsenal have? Absolutely. On his day he is world-class. On another day he is an absolutely ridiculous defender. Arsenal are not going to challenge for the title. If Luiz comes in I will applaud it and I think they will finish third.”
