Arsenal tracking £13.5m Lokonga, Saka IN England squad, Gunners lead Raheem Sterling race EXCLUSIVE, Odegaard £50m price

GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS

Bukayo Saka is the only Arsenal player to be included in Gareth Southgate’s final 26-man England squad for Euro 2020.

The wide man made it in despite widespread expectation he would be one of the seven dropped.

And Saka is set for a head to head with Gunners team-mate Kieran Tierney when England face Scotland at Wembley on June 18.

Elsewhere, William Gallas believes Mikel Arteta should leave Arsenal.

Gallas is confident Arteta will develop into an elite manager one day – but reckons it was a ‘mistake’ to appoint the Spaniard as the Gunners missed out on European football for the first time since 1995-96.

The Frenchman, 43, told SunSport: “Mikel Arteta was not ready yet to manage a club like Arsenal. OK, he was assistant coach at Manchester City. But he had never managed a team. It is completely different.

“The board made a mistake picking him. I’m sure he will be a great manager but you need to have experience to manage a big club.

“To be honest, it is a great shame for the Arsenal fans after finishing eighth.

“Arsenal is not the same Arsenal we knew 18, 20 years ago. We had players who were strong with strong personalities.”

Finally, Arsenal are tracking Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga, according to reports.

A number of Premier League clubs are tracking the 21-year-old who is rated at £13.5million.

Arsenal have been keen since 2019 and are considering moving again this summer, according to Nieuwsblad.

Lokonga mainly plays as a defensive midfielder and could play alongside Thomas Partey.
