Arsenal, Leicester City ‘monitoring’ PL winger following resurgence

Arsenal and Leicester City are both “monitoring” in-form Southampton winger Mohamed Elyounoussi, according to reports.

. Later that year, Southampton signed him for a fee of around £16m.

The attacker failed to score from his 19 outings for the Saints in his debut season. This led to him spending two years on loan at Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

The 27-year-old scored 17 times for Celtic last term before he returned to Southampton this summer.

Elyounoussi has four goals and two assists for the Saints this season. In August, he scored a hat-trick and he grabbed two assists as his side beat Newport County 8-0 in the Carabao Cup second round.

The winger featured for Norway during the international break. He scored a brace against Montenegro last week as his side won 2-0.

The are reporting that Arsenal and Leicester are both “monitoring” Elyounoussi. His current deal at Southampton expires in 2023.

“I think when you get that comparison you need to accept straight away that if you don’t win three or four Premier League titles, you will always be worse than the previous one,” Arteta said.

“They have already done it and you have just started. So for three or four years prepare yourself that you’re not going to be as good with every comparison.

“It’s impossible to achieve it in three weeks, so just focus on what you are as a player, what you are asked by your manager to do, be yourself and don’t try to be anyone else.”

When asked if Arsenal have a problem moving on from “heroes” such as Vieira, Arteta replied: “It is because normally they become heroes when they are successful and when you win football games and trophies.

“To do that, obviously you don’t just need an individual you need a squad and in this context probably, (right now) is the best-ever generation in Premier League history – to become champions of this league, the top points that they used to have, today it wouldn’t be enough even today to win the Premier League.

“So that’s very significant as well but that has to be the aim. The club has done it in the past and we are looking to do it again.”

Tournament organisers UEFA opened disciplinary proceedings against the Football Association on August 3 and issued sanctions on Monday.

In addition to the one-match ban on supporters, a further one-game ban is suspended for a period of two years, UEFA said.

‘ next UEFA competition match will be in the Nations League next June.

The Football Association has also been fined 100,000 euro (around £84,500).

A statement from UEFA read: “Following an investigation conducted by a UEFA ethics and disciplinary inspector regarding the incidents that occurred during the UEFA EURO 2020 final match between the national teams of Italy and England played on July 11, 2021 at Wembley Stadium, London, and the subsequent disciplinary proceedings opened against the English Football Association, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has today taken the following decision:

“To order the English Football Association to play its next two (2) UEFA competition matches as host association behind closed doors, the second of which is suspended for a probationary period of two (2) years from the date of the present decision, for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium.

“To fine the English Football Association €100,000 for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium, for the invasion of the field of play, for throwing of objects and for the disturbances during the national anthems.”

A spokesperson for the FA said: “Although we are disappointed with the verdict, we acknowledge the outcome of this UEFA decision.

“We condemn the terrible behaviour of the individuals who caused the disgraceful scenes in and around Wembley Stadium at the EURO 2020 final, and we deeply regret that some of them were able to enter the stadium.

“We are determined that this can never be repeated, so we have commissioned an independent review, led by Baroness Casey, to report on the circumstances involved. We continue to work with the relevant authorities in support of their efforts to take action against those responsible and hold them to account.”

The Metropolitan Police reported on July 14 that there had been 51 arrests connected to the final – 26 of those were arrested while policing events in Wembley, with 25 arrests following events in central London. Nineteen officers were injured during the course of the policing operation.

The Wembley disorder has been held up by the UK’s football policing lead, Chief Constable Mark Roberts of Cheshire Police, as an example of why rules around alcohol at football matches should not be relaxed.

Conservative MP Tracey Crouch is set to recommend a pilot in League Two and the National League allowing fans to drink in the stands or in their seat as part of her fan-led review.

Her recommendations are expected to be published this week.
