Juventus Win Race For Arsenal Star

The Gunners fielded a weakened side against the League One club in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

"We don't know why they haven't tried to keep him", Bridge told the Transfer Talk podcast (as reported by the Express).

Arsenal travel to Blackpool on Saturday evening in the third round of the FA Cup.

Interestingly, the report claims that German worldwide Sami Khedira could move the other way and arrive in north London at the end of the season; creating something of a midfield swap deal.

"It's a title and it's a possibility for us to do something important", he said.

He said: "It's brilliant for all of us who are involved".

"We'll need to play really well and maybe they'll need to be off it a little bit".

I am at Bloomfield Road to watch Blackpool play Arsenal for BBC Radio 5 live and am looking forward to it.

But Arsenal would also get a World Cup victor; offering an experience, mentality and stature that only Mesut Ozil within their current ranks could match. We need to give them chances but in good combination with other things. Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal are back in training after recovering from their respective injuries but they're unlikely to be risked against Blackpool.

The same goes for Shkodran Mustafi, who came off at half-time in the win over Fulham with a minor hamstring complaint.

Furthermore, while Arsenal are still in the fight for European spots, Juventus are nearly assured UEFA Champions League football given their dominance in the Italian league.

Ozil has missed the last two Arsenal games due to a knee injury.
