Wenger challenges Ozil to become a leader after signing new deal

Giroud left was on the bench for Arsenal away to Swansea last night

The Premier League is the richest of all European leagues thanks to huge TV revenue, and Arsenal broke their transfer record sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund for £56 million this week.

The London club bolstered their forward line by signing the Gabon worldwide from Borussia Dortmund for a club-record fee on Wednesday but Aubameyang, 28, did not fully participate in Thursday's training session due to a fever.

The Gabon global has already started training with the Gunners but may be forced to wait for his Arsenal debut if fellow January arrival Henrikh Mkhitaryan is given his first start behind Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned that financial imbalance among football clubs is "destroying competition" around Europe. Firstly, it is hard to see how Wenger can fit all of his new players into the same team.

Arsenal are also hopeful midfielder Jack Wilshere will be fit for Saturday - the England man will be assessed after sitting out of the Swansea loss due to illness.

Rob Gronkowski Returns To Practice, Still in Concussion Protocol
Go ahead and take the New England Patriots to win their sixth Super Bowl title with Tom Brady to earn his fifth MVP award. Jacksonville ended the game with three sacks, but Brady still made two game-clinching fourth-quarter touchdown passes.

"Yes, it's good news", Wenger said with a straight face in a video accidentally leaked on the Arsenal website.

"It is always possible". It is good news for us - if you can keep a player of that calibre is of course good news. "Maybe - I don't know", he said.

Despite all of that business, Wenger was not completely satisfied as he failed to add to his defensive ranks after a late move for West Brom's Jonny Evans failed to materialise. "But we are in a period where we are in a tricky position on that front, with us trying to qualify for the Champions League". One up or two up.

Arsenal are sixth in the table with 42 points from 25 games.
