FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS BOSS
It's been a tough few weeks for the boss, but it's a very happy birthday to Mikel Arteta.
At 38, he is the 30th-youngest manager in Premier League history after making his dugout debut at 37 years and nine months.
Arsenal are still interested in signing Chris Smalling from Manchester United, according to reports.
The 30-year-old has played well on loan at Roma this season, making 21 appearances in Serie A and has impressed in Italian football.
And according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, the Gunners have already made a bid for the defender.
It would give United plenty to think about and whether they need Smalling any more.
They have already dropped Phil Jones down the pecking order and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been rotating between Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
