All the latest news and gossip from The Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil answered questions at the clubs training ground yesterday - and had some interesting answers - as reported in the Daily Mirror.

He stated that he didn’t feel any pressure being top of the Premier League, and that he was desperate for Arsene Wenger to stay with the club.

He also spoke about his own form:

“Every league is different, especially here the Premier League is different to La Liga or the Bundesliga but I am very satisfied, I know I can play better, I know what potential I have. But the most important thing is that everything works well at the moment with the team.”

Thierry Henry has been singing the praises of his former boss Arsene Wenger. Henry was speaking in Barcelona, and stated:

"I still watch Arsenal a lot. They have had a great start to the season and I hope they can keep it up. I would be really happy if they won the Premier League. He changed the philosophy of the club. He won stuff as soon as he arrived and therefore he earned the trust of the fans and the respect of everyone."

The rumours suggesting Barcelona starlet Munir El Haddadi could be on his way to Arsenal have picked up momentum over the past 24 hours.

The talented Moroccan-Spaniard is one of the Catalan club’s star youngsters - and Spanish source Mundo Deportivo report this morning that he is out if contract in June, which has earned the attention of Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsenal have reportedly decided on the man to replace Liam Brady as the clubs head of youth academy at the end of the season.

Despite consistent rumours the role would be given to Dennis Bergkamp - it will instead be awarded to Andries Jonker - currently the assistant boss at Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg.
