Arsenal media round-up: Interesting fact emerges about players' agents

Arsenal Fans At Emirates 4

A round up of news stories this morning related to Arsenal.

The Daily Mail has reported that five Arsenal players use close relatives as their representatives rather than employing outside agents.

The paper has reported the news after FIFA decided that regulation of agents should become the responsibility of governing bodies in each specific country.

The paper claims that football’s global governing body has given up on attempting to control middle men.

The Metro has reported that Arsenal are in pole position to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli in Serie A.

The Argentine attacker has been previously linked with a move to the Emirates, but a deal has never materialised.

The daily newspaper claims that he would cost in the region of £34.5 million for any deal to happen.

The Daily Mirror has claimed that Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs decided to visit a McDonalds following the club’s win against Liverpool.

Arsenal defeated Brendan Rodgers’ side 4-1 in the Premier League last weekend and was snapped by a fan as he visited the fast food chain with a friend.

Gibbs, unsurprisingly, appeared to be in great spirits following the club’s latest win.
