    MORNING ARSENAL FANS

    Gunners skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang faces a problem over his potential departure from Arsenal this summer.

    FIFA are set to push back the transfer window following their decision to let the domestic leagues go on indefinitely.

    This could leave a short period before this season ending and the start of the next campaign, which would give the Barcelona target little time to secure the move he wants.

    Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil's super-agent has called for all Premier League stars’ representatives to join the bitter coronavirus wage war.

    Dr Erkut Sogut — the man who negotiated Arsenal midfielder Ozil’s mega £350,000-a-week Emirates contract — insists agents should be included in the current tense pay talks between the League, the PFA, clubs and players.

    And Arsenal have reportedly been joined by Man Utd and Barcelona in the race for highly-rated Real Madrid youngster Cesar Gelabert.

    AS claims the 19-year-old Spanish attacking midfielder could make a shock exit this summer after failing to agree a new Bernabeu contract.

    He has played 13 times for the Castilla ‘B’ team this season.

    And it’s reckoned Arsenal have been keeping tabs on Gelabert for some time after sending scouts to watch him against Chelsea and Spurs.

    Arsenal are also one of SEVEN clubs fighting it out to sign Achraf Hakimi this summer.

    The Moroccan full-back, 21, has spent the last two seasons at Borussia Dortmund on loan from Real Madrid.

    In that time he has emerged as one of the world’s brightest talents, with seemingly all of Europe’s elite chasing his signature.

    And finally, Mikel Arteta has plugged his players into a GPS network – to spy on their fitness levels during the coronavirus lockdown.

    Having already used GPS vests in normal training, the Gunners are now wearing trackers to monitor their individual regimes at home.

    It means Arsenal‘s fitness department can analyse the results as players try to maintain as much sharpness as possible.

    CAPTAIN MARVELS

    Premier League captains have brokered a deal worth £4million to fund the NHS.

    The 20 club skippers have completed four days of talks to rubber-stamp the ground-breaking plan during the coronavirus crisis.

    Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire have worked closely on the deal, while Mark Noble of West Ham and Watford’s Troy Deeney will also help administer the scheme.

    The cash boost from the players has been done independently from both the PFA and the Premier League.

    The captains, who have been communicating via whatsapp, want the cash to go to local hospitals in their specific areas.

    But the amounts will remain anonymous as some clubs – and individual players – will be putting in more than others because there is such a difference in wages between sides in the Premier League.

    Each club captain has spoken to their players and taken note of pledges from team-mates. It will be at least £3m in total but it is hoped that £4m will be reached – although it could even be more.

    HEART ACH

    Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are amongst the SEVEN clubs fighting it out to sign Achraf Hakimi this summer.

    The Moroccan full-back, 21, has spent the last two seasons at Borussia Dortmund on loan from Real Madrid.

    In that time he has emerged as one of the world’s brightest talents, with seemingly all of Europe’s elite chasing his signature.

    His stint in the Bundesliga has seen Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane prepare for talks with Hakimi over a permanent return to the Bernabeu.

    But he is now under huge pressure, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs joined by Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich – as well as Dortmund.

    And Hakimi has told Zidane he will NOT return to Madrid if he will only be playing second-fiddle to Dani Carvajal, according to reports in Spain.

    Hakimi’s contract at the Bernabeu runs until June 2022 and contains a release clause of around £50million.

    CASH JOY

    Leeds stars will be getting a wage BONUS when the coronavirus crisis is over.

    Players have agreed to take hefty cuts on their salaries while the Championship season remains postponed.

    Along with manager Marcelo Bielsa, up to half of their wages have been deferred.

    But owner Andrea Radrizzani has offered them a 2 per cent raise when things get back to normal as a token of thanks.

    Leeds have already taken £1million off their £3m monthly wage bill.

    And players are said to be delighted by Radrizanni’s gesture during a tough time for the game.

    Leeds were top of the table when football was halted.

    And promotion to the top flight would have guaranteed £170m in the bank.
