On this day: Wenger to sign £4.5m Argentine, Leeds 'sweat' over Warnock

Arsene Wenger

Stories about Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United all feature.

The weekend’s Premier League and Championship action is now over, as focus switches to the Champions League and a chance for the Premier League’s big boys to impress in European competition.

There’s also a full set of Championship fixtures tomorrow night, which creates opportunities for sides that struggled over the weekend to respond positively as they look to start heading in the right direction over the course of the winter.

We’ve decided to take a look back at the stories making the headlines on this day last year.

‘Arsenal considering bid for Argentine sensation’

The Mirror was linking Arsenal with a potential bid for 18-year-old San Lorenzo winger Angel Correa.

The Mirror’s report produced a £4.5 million figure as Arsene Wenger seemingly considered the next bright talent to come into his squad.

Correa never made the move, with Arsenal adding Alexis Sanchez out wide in last summer’s transfer window.

‘Savage: Spurs too cautious’

Robbie Savage said Tottenham Hotspur were too cautious to mount a serious push for the Premier League title.

The Welshman cited the 0-0 draw at Everton last season as evidence that Spurs don’t try hard enough to win big games.

“If they are serious about winning the title, then Tottenham have got to win these sort of tight games. With their team selection and tactics against the Toffees, they did not try hard enough to do that,” Savage wrote for the BBC.

‘Leeds sweating over Warnock fitness’

Leeds United were left sweating over the fitness of key defender Stephen Warnock after a win against Yeovil Town.

Warnock went into that game last season carrying an injury and Brian McDermott was criticised when he was forced to sub Warnock in the second half.

The injury saw current captain Jason Pearce used in a makeshift full-back role.
