Morning all.

Headlines in the Mail read:

  • Arsenal have reportedly tabled an offer for Galatasaray right back Sacha Boey. 
  • Boey has been a vital in Galatasaray’s pursuit of the Turkish Super Lig title.
  • Galatasaray are claimed to be demanding £21million to sell the 22-year-old. 
  • Galatasaray’s vice-president Erden Timur is claimed to have travelled to London to discuss the potential transfer.

Surely it would be Arsenal’s employees travelling to Turkey if this story had any legs to it? We’ll see but apparently Man Utd are interested in the Frenchman too. They are interested in Mason Mount and Declan Rice too, both who’ve recently been linked with Arsenal. James Maddison is also rumoured to be on Arsenal’s radar and I strongly suspect Youri Tieleman’s name will again appear in headlines relating to a move to north London.

The Champions League and Europa League places are now confirmed after Utd thrashed Chelsea last night so all that’s left to be resolved as far as European football next season is who out of Aston Villa and Totts will finish in the Europa Conference League place.

At the bottom of the table, two out of Everton, Leeds Utd and Leicester City will be relegated. All three are playing their final fixture at home with Everton facing Bournemouth, Leeds taking on Totts and Leicester City playing a West Ham team which is probably thinking about their upcoming Europa Conference League Cup Final next weekend than Sunday’s game.

Back at Arsenal, it’s time for fans to vote for their player of the year via the official website. I’ve nominated mine but it was hard. It’s almost like players had two different seasons within one. At Christmas, any one of the ‘first team’ could have won my vote now, well, it was a different story. For me anyway.

I was reading through the list of previous Arsenal player of the season and a few surprises popped up. Flamini in 2008, Ozil in 2016, Lacazette in 2019 and Ramsey in both 2014 and 2018. What about Lehmann in 2006?

Also on the official site is the launch on our 2023/24 kit. Good news, Emile Smith Rowe is wearing one which in my opinion, suggests he’s going nowhere this summer.

William Saliba can been seen in his kit too which hopefully means he’s staying put too. Kieran Tierney and Takehiro Tomiyasu are sporting the new kit too. No Granit Xhaka, Matt Turner, Reiss Nelson, Thomas Partey or Jorginho though. Yes, I love a conspiracy theory.

Lastly, BBC Sport has a interview with Pepe Reina. He talks about Mikel Arteta and it’s good I think. You can read it HERE.
