Tierney could return vs Watford, Isak speaks after Gunners link, Vlahovic transfer LATEST


Arsenal take on Watford on Sunday at the Emirates in the Premier League.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has been dealt with an injury boost with Kieran Tierney returning to training.

Tierney has been out with an ankle injury but is in contention to return against the Hornets.

Granit Xhaka remains sidelined with a knee injury and Arteta considers naming the same starting line-up for a third game in a row.

Watford manager Claudio Ranieri, on the other hand, will be without Ken Sema and Kwadwo Baah due to a ligament and ankle injury respectively.

Sema and Baah both limped off during training earlier this week ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Arsenal.

Francisco Sierralta could return to action after taking part in first-team training but Christian Kabasele continues his recovery from a hamstring strain.

Kiko Femenia also trained with the rest of the team despite a recent hip knock.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have informed Fiorentina they can meet Dusan Vlahovic’s release clause.

That is according to Gianluca Di Marzio, who claims the two clubs are in talks over a deal involving Vlahovic.

The Viola are understood to have told the Gunners they want £68million for the centre-forward.

And the north Londoners are happy to oblige as they suggested they can achieve that figure through add-ons.

Finally, Real Sociedad star Alexander Isak admitted it “would be nice” to play in the Premier League one day amid rumours linking him to Arsenal as Alexandre Lacazette’s replacement.

Isak told The Independent: “I am in a good place at the moment, I am very happy, but one day it would be nice to play in England as well.

“They have six or seven of the biggest clubs in the world, it is a very high level, and of course one day it would be an alternative.

“Every player wants to be the best version of themselves and reach the highest possible level.

“People will always count the goals, I want to score, but I want to be a modern striker. I love playing football and that means being involved as much as possible.

I think that is why Spain has suited me very well”
