Aaron Ramsey calls for change at the club ahead of their next game
“We’re very disappointed with the way we performed but we have to accept it. We’re sorry to the fans that came up – it’s not good enough and we have to do something about it,” Ramsey told the club website.
“We’re going to have to change something if we’re to compete this year. That wasn’t good enough. Liverpool showed what it’s going to have to take to compete for the Premier League and we’re going to have to do something about it if we’re going to do that.”
Martin Keown believes Wenger may be questioning when he stayed on as the club’s manager
“Of course the players must take some responsibility but the manager has to give them a platform from which they can play. Wenger was as culpable as the players for this debacle,” Keown wrote in The Daily Mail.
“There must be a part of Wenger that is questioning why he decided to stay but he will not walk away now. He has been in difficult situations before and will know that now is not the time to panic.
“During the international break, Wenger must simplify his decision-making and work out who are the 11 players he can completely trust to get Arsenal out of this mess.
“What is certain is that this will be the loneliest week of Wenger’s life.”
Guillem Balague says Marco Asensio rejected a move to Arsenal in 2014
“It’s been rumoured that Arsenal are interested. He’s a player Arsenal have looked at before he went to Real Madrid, which is a time to get these types of players,” Balague told Sky Sports.
“Now he’s at Madrid and he’s very happy to be at Madrid. It has been reported that his buy-out clause is £78m, actually it’s higher than that.
“I’ve asked Real Madrid and they’ve said the buy-out clause is confidential. Some say £150m, others say £300m. The fact is they’re preparing a new contract with an even higher clause.”
Jean Michael Seri gives an update on his future at Nice
“I want to be optimistic and think that there are still options,” Seri said after his move to Barcelona collapsed.
“Let the two clubs talk quietly again and come to an agreement. We are not talking about any club, where you are going to sign for money.
“I want to sign up big European clubs, like Juventus, PSG, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool.
“For example, Roma, has made several offers. I have spoken many times with Monchi and this transfer has not occurred either because of economic reasons.
“Monchi got tired of the leaders of Nice! Roma was a good choice, but nothing to do with Barca.”
