Mathieu Flamini back to Arsenal on a free transfer?

There seemed to be a lot of bitterness from Mathieu Flamini when he left Arsenal, and he blamed Arsene Wenger for not offering him a contract extension until he suddenly improved his form after coming back from injury.

But today Caughtoffside is suggesting that Arsenal are considering offering Flamini the chance to return to the Emirates if AC Milan let him leave on a free transfer in the summer.

The French midfielder has been in and out of the Milan side in the four years he has been there, mostly due to injury problems, and never followed up on his promise for the France national team either.

Emmanuel Frimpong hoping for good news today

The Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong was stretchered off in the first half of Wolves 2-1 win over QPR on Saturday and he has had an anxious weekend in a brace waiting for the visit to the hospital today for the crucial MRI scan on his knee.

After missing the whole of last season thanks to a damaged cruciate ligament, he is obviously worried that the same problem has come up again, but he is keeping his spirits up while he is wating.

He tweeted to his followers yesterday: “Having scan on Monday hopefully aint serious like my cruciate last year.”
