12pm Arsenal news LIVE: Vitoria build-up, Xhaka may NEVER play for Gunners again, Aubameyang set to be new captain – The Sun

ARSENAL have acted decisively to strip Granit Xhaka of the club captaincy following his outburst at the fans during the Gunners' 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

Get all the latest reaction here on a seismic day for the Gunners…

  • ARSENE WENGER could bring a host of old Arsenal favourites with him if he takes over at Bayern Munich.

    Wenger has been out of work since leaving the Gunners last summer – and now goes head-to-head with old enemy Jose Mourinho in fighting for the top job at the Allianz Arena.

    Here's how the German giants could line-up with Wenger in charge…

  • BAYERN MUNICH will not sign Ralf Rangnick as their new manager, opening the way for Arsene Wenger's high-profile return to football.

    Reports in Germany state frontrunner Rangnick, currently Red Bull's head of football development, will not even hold talks with the Bundesligachampions.

    According to the former RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim coach's agent, the 61-year-old is not what Bayern are looking for.

    Marc Kosicke told Bild: “No, Rangnick is not available.

    “We don't believe that what Rangnick brings is currently being sought by Bayern, and that's why it makes no sense to hold concrete talks.”

  • SENIOR Arsenal stars are reportedly fed up with Unai Emery’s post-training meetings.

    The Standard claims the Spaniard runs the risk of a mid-season sacking if Arsenal continue to perform below par.

    And one of the areas Emery needs to quickly address is his post-training meeting methods.

    It’s said the ex-Sevilla manager makes his players sit around for “multiple and lengthy meetings, elongated further by his average grasp of English.”

  • DANI CEBALLOS showing them how it's done.

  • ARSENAL 'are likely to sell Granit Xhaka in January' after Unai Emery stripped him of the captaincy following his fan outburst.

    The Emirates boss refused to confirm the Swiss midfielder had any sort of future at the club.

    The Times reports that the Swiss midfielder is likely to leave Arsenal in the January transfer window, with a return to Germany his most likely destination.
