AC Milan & Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere
As always the Sunday Express have been unable to avoid spewing transfer gossip this weekend.
The big story from Neil Fissier this Sunday is to link Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere with a summer move to AC Milan.
Wilshere, of course, played 90 minutes for Arsenal against Milan in the San Siro on Thursday night.
In a shock result no one saw coming, Arsenal ended a four-game losing streak with a 2-0 away win in the Europa League.
Now the Express suggest Milan could swoop for Wilshere, as the midfielder continues to not sign a new deal with Arsenal.
Sadly the tabloid have little evidence to make anyone believe this AC Milan deal will happen. The Express also seem to cover their bets linking Juventus and Sampdoria to Wilshere as well.
So everyone in Serie A is now turned on to Wislhere because of one UEL shift?

Arsenal vs Watford
Arsenal host Watford at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
With hopes of a top four finish all but gone, Arsenal’s focus for the season as turned to the Europa League.
Contrary to their recent form, Arsenal were brilliant in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 16 tie at the San Siro on Thursday night.
Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey handed the Gunners a surprise 2-0 away win.
Last weekend Arsenal suffered a third consecutive league defeat, losing 2-1 at Brighton.
Having not played in midweek, Watford will be the fresher of the two sides. Javi Garcia’s side beat West Brom 1-0 last weekend thanks to Troy Deeney’s second-half goal.
Watford have a decent away record this season, although they’ve failed to win any of their last seven matches on the road – scoring just two goals in that period. Arsene Wenger’s side have lost their last three matches at the Emirates Stadium in all competitions.
Watford were 2-1 winners in October’s reverse fixture at Vicarage Road. Per Mertesacker opened the scoring for the Gunners before Watford turned things around through captain Troy Deeney and a stoppage-time winner from Tom Cleverley.
