All the latest news and gossip from The Emirates Stadium this morning.
Arsenal’s Young Gunners have crashed out of the UEFA Youth League to Spanish outfit Barcelona.
The under-19 side had made it to the quarter-final stage but found Barca too hot to handle in Catalonia.
The game also saw Kris Olsson miss a penalty and goalkeeper Dejan Iliev sent off for a foul on Munir El Haddadi.
Diaby even believes he could still make the French World Cup team this summer:
“I will take stock with Arsenal medical staff early in April, but I hope to resume collective training sessions very soon. My priorities? Feeling fine and playing again before the end of the season. The French team? I have never abandoned the idea to go to the World Cup. I have always kept that in a corner of my mind to go on working. As soon as I will be back on the pitch, everything is possible."
The Borussia Dortmund full-back has been out for most of the season but his stock is well known after an excellent campaign last season.
Valued at around £7 million he is also being targeted Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
Arsenal tied down Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Gedion Zelalem to new deals yesterday - and are now said to be targeting a new contract for French centre-back Laurent Koscielny.
The former Lorient star has been in great form for the past 12 months - and even reportedly attracted the interest of Barcelona.
But he is set to commit his future to the Gunners if the right deal comes forward.
