Enrique hopes for Messi at Arsenal

Luis Enrique would like to bring Lionel Messi to the Premier League if he is appointed as Arsenal manager, according to the Express .

Benzema rejects West Ham

Karim Benzema was the subject of a €60m offer from a London club, but it wasn’t Arsenal, reports Don Balon .

Should Arsenal opt for experience, though, Podolski thinks ex-Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti would be a good choice.
