Arsenal have confirmed that their midfielder
Emery's men face Brighton on Boxing Day, as they look to continue their push for a top four finish.
The north London side have been in impressive form of late, with Emery's attractive, organised football seeing the side battle competently with the likes of Spurs and Chelsea for a Champions League qualification spot. With the January transfer window looming,
Arsenal may well dip into the market, to avoid running the risk of their top players burning out by May.
In other news, Arsenal have reportedly been quoted a hefty £72m asking price for Lille winger Nicolas Pépé. The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with Arsenal since the last transfer window, but the Ligue 1 side's lofty demands could well put the Gunners off making a January swoop for the 23-year-old ace.
