Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta won the London Football Awards Manager of the Year at the Roundhouse in England tonight.
An impressive 2022/23 season ensues with the Gunners. They sit atop the Premier League table and look unstoppable in their pursuit of their first league title since 2004.
Arteta and his boys are five points clear at the top of the table, followed by champions Manchester City.

Arsenal beat Fulham 3-0 yesterday to restore their lead with 11 league games to play this season. Last Thursday, the North London club earned a comfortable 2-2 draw against Sporting CP in Portugal. Arsenal welcome them for the return match in England on Thursday.

The Premier League side are the bettors’ favorite to advance to the quarter-finals.
Arsenal won two other major categories, with Bukayo Saka winning the Young Player of the Year award. It is the reward of an excellent season with his youth club. The 21-year-old has registered ten goals and nine assists in 27 league games. Saka has started every game his team has played in the league this season.

Saka has become a talisman for the club and delights the fans as he is a product of their Hale End academy. He also became an England international during this period and is regularly called up under manager Gareth Southgate.

Surprisingly, Saka wasn’t named Premier League Player of the Year either. This award went to its captain Martin Ödegaard.
The Norwegian playmaker beat competition from Saka, Tottenham striker Harry Kane, Brentford striker Ivan Toney and Fulham goalkeeper Aleksandar Mitrovic.

West Ham United legend Mark Noble has won London’s Outstanding Contribution to Football award. Chelsea striker Sam Kerr has been named player of the year.

The Lionesses have won the 2022 European Women’s Championship. Arsenal stars Leah Williamson and Beth Mead have received the Power of Football award for their performance/achievement.

Arsenal transfer news: The Gunners have been linked with a transfer of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen ahead of the summer, along with Chelsea and Manchester United

Arsenal are the latest club to be linked with the transfer of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen after an impressive season for the Nigerian. The 24-year-old has become a much-loved player with a big transfer this summer after helping the Azzurri reach the Scudetto again.

19 goals in 21 Serie A appearances have underlined their level of performance this season, with Napoli now 15 points clear of second-placed Inter Milan. While the focus will undoubtedly be on winning the title, Osimhen has spoken of the possibility of a transfer in the future.

“I’m working so hard to fulfill my dream of one day playing in the Premier League,” the striker has told reporters in recent days, possibly putting some clubs on alert. “But like I said, it’s a process and I want to keep that momentum going and continue to do well.”

That acknowledgment of a willingness to move to the Premier League has only fueled interest from a few clubs, with Chelsea and Manchester United the main contenders. However, leaders Arsenal have also been linked, with the potential need for a consistent goalscorer.

While there could be a lot of interest, Fabrizio Romano said the Gunners were unlikely to move to Osimhen in the summer.

He told CaughtOffside: “I haven’t confirmed at the moment [Arsenal’s interest in Osimhen]. Arsenal have Gabriel Jesus, Nketiah, Balogun and Osimhen’s price will be huge too. I think Arsenal have other priorities for this summer, including a new midfielder.”

It suggests the Gunners are looking elsewhere for changes and are unlikely to be embroiled in a potential bidding war over a player having an exceptional season.

Do you think this is a nice suggestion ?
