Jon Toral made his Rangers debut this weekend as he looks to get his career back on track. The Spanish midfielder has long been one of Arsenal’s best prospects, but having spent so much time on loan without being given a chance, his future is uncertain. He started this year on-loan at Granada in La Liga, after doing so well at Birmingham City last year, before moving on to Rangers after a lack of playing time. It’s a difficult move – but he can take heart from Gideon Zelalem, who spent time with The Gers in 2016. He became one of their best passers, runners and tacklers in central midfield and now Toral will hope he can thrive in the same way. Toral made his debut this weekend and Arsene Wenger will no doubt be watching on to see how it all goes. Will he make this spell count and end up becoming a big star or will he be Arsenal’s latest big talent who doesn’t live up to the hype? Only time will tell.

Indeed, all the talk now is that Emi Martinez will be hanging around to be third choice while Macey mo
Serge Gnabry has been considered a big talent at Arsenal for a long time, but he’s never quite managed a break through. His loan last season to West Brom was seen as the perfect chance for him to get game time and cement himself as a Premier League are. But he hardly featured and was heavily slammed by West Brom’s Head Coach Tony Pulis – who claimed he had a lot to learn. Gnabry returned to Arsenal for pre-season training but then made the bold move to reject playing for the Gunners in their warm-up matches, opting to instead
Ever since Leicester lifted the title last year there has been speculation as to if they could hang on the key players that inspired them to win the Premier League. Jamie Vardy has elected to stay with the Champions despite the lure of the Emirates and N’Golo Kante has headed to London, alas to the blue side of the city. But the player that arguably lit up the most stadia from Newcastle to Southampton was Algerian winger Riyad Mahrez. Mahrez (25) was a revelation last season contributing 17 goals and 14 assists in 37 games and forming a devas
You could be forgiven for not knowing much about Rob Holding before he signed for Arsenal a few days ago. The 20-year-old had only played a few times for Bolton last season, and despite winning their Player of the Year award, many onlookers suggested he still had a lot to prove. That didn’t stop Arsenal though. They signed him up in a £2million deal – to the surprise of many – and Holding has since played in both pre-season matches in America. Arsenal negotiated for a while, just like Titanbet have been trying a free bet for a while. He
