    SEA OF RED

    Arsenal legend David Seaman has called on Gunners fans to keep backing their hideously out-of-form team.

    He tweeted: “I know all the #Gunners are feeling negative this morning, it will get better but our big players need to step up to the plate and inspire confidence!”

    ARSENAL ROUND-UP

    Arsenal are back in action on Wednesday as they welcome Southampton the Emirates.

    But it's not a happy camp in North London, with Mikel Arteta's side looking to avoid a fifth-straight Premier League defeat.

    On the transfer front, the Gunners are reportedly looking to land Reims star Boulaye Dia in a bid to solve their goal crisis.

    Le10Sport claims Arteta has identified the 24-year-old striker as the man to fire Arsenal back up the table in January.

    Senegal international Dia has scored eight goals in 12 games so far this season in Ligue 1.

    On a less promising note, reports suggest Bayern Munich are in pole position to land Dayot Upamecano.

    The Athletic claim that Champions League winners Bayern are now in the driving seat over the PL duo in the hunt for the highly rated RB Leipzig centre-back.

    Upamecano, 22, has a £38million release clause in his contract that can be activated at the end of the season.

    And finally, the Mesut Ozil saga continues to rumble on.

    The German playmaker last appeared for Arsenal over nine months ago – but he is set to possibly RETURN to the team after recent results.
