Arsenal media round-up: Reason Wenger will reportedly overlook Schneiderlin

Arsenal v Southampton 2012 Pregame with Schneiderlin

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

The Daily Mirror has reported that Morgan Schneiderlin is set to complete a £24 million move to Manchester United at some point next week.

Arsenal were thought to be interested in the player according to the paper, but United appear to have the edge in the race for his signature.

The paper claims the reason Arsenal’s interest in the Frenchman has decreased is because of the progress made by Francis Coquelin.

The London Evening Standard has reported that Arsenal will be forced to pay £67 million if they want to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli.

The Gunners are mentioned as an interested party in signing the Argentine, who has vast experience at domestic and European level.

The paper states the amount is the full figure in Higuain’s Napoli contract, which is set to expire in 2018.

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has been quoted by Goal.com explaining what he sees as the key to the club’s title challenge next season.

Welbeck will be looking to make a bigger impact for the Gunners next season having fallen out of the side by the end of the last campaign.

He’s suggested that there is a determination running through the camp for the team to grow stronger.

“We don't want to set our aims low, we want to be the best we can be. After the run we went on, it shows that we can handle it in the Premier League - We're determined to keep on improving,” he said.
