    More on England's stay

    Not only do they have the option to surf, play golf, watch movies in the cinema or even take scuba diving courses.

    But Banana Island also boasts a bowling alley, a fitness centre, a tennis court, a water park and the option to engage in a wide range of water sports.

    Wags can also let their hair down at the resort's private beach where they can partake in beach football, volleyball or badminton.

    Or they can alternatively stay in their lounger and watch the sunset.

    However those that were looking forward to sipping on a few cocktails will be left disappointed.

    That is because Banana Island is an alcohol-free environment.

    Murphy accuses Arteta of mismanagement

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been accused of “mismanagement” after bringing on 15-year-old Ethan Nwaneri in the 3-0 win over Brentford on Sunday.

    Nwaneri became the youngest player to play in the Premier League.

    But ex-footballer Danny Murphy has questioned whether Arteta could’ve called upon some of Arsenal’s older academy stars.

    He said on talkSPORT: “I am not convinced it is the best move for a young player, I am really not.

    “I have seen superstars come on the scene at a young age and thrive and go on and carry on, but there has also been a lot who have fallen by the wayside.

    “He is obviously a super-talent, doing well in training and impressing everybody, but surely they have got other 18, 19 and 20-year-olds who are further ahead in their development who could have gone on the bench.

    “I think he is probably trying to keep a young superstar happy.”

    Arsenal back in for Locatelli

    Arsenal have renewed their transfer interest in Juventus star Manuel Locatelli.

    According to CalcioMercato, the Gunners have renewed their interest in Locatelli after failing to sign a midfielder over the summer.

    The North Londoners saw a trio of deadline day bids rejected for Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz, while interest in Leicester ace Youri Tielemans never materialised into a bid.

    Massiliano Allegri and Juve have lost patience with the 24-year-old Italian and are now prepared to offload him.

    Abramovich almost bought Arsenal

    Roman Abramovich could have bought Arsenal instead of Chelsea but he was mistakenly warned off by ignorant Swiss bankers, reports SunSport’s Rob Maul.

    The shocking revelations have been made in book, The Club, penned by two Wall Street Journal writers.

    The book claims in 2003, Abramovich hired Swiss bank UBS to examine the economics surrounding English top-flight football.

    One of their findings was that “Arsenal were categorically not for sale”.

    Abramovich instead took over Chelsea for £140million and went on to win five Prem titles and two Champions League crowns.

    The book also says former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein believed the club’s owners would have cashed in if the Russian oligarch had offered.

    Next two league games are key, says Shearer

    Premier League record goalscorer Alan Shearer suggested that a title push is not likely for Arsenal.

    Instead, the Newcastle legend believes that a top-four finish is a much likelier scenario for Mikel Arteta’s men.

    Shearer added on his BBC column: “I still think Arsenal’s main target is a return to the top four for the first time since 2016, and they have not done too much wrong so far.

    “Their next two league games at the start of October, at home to Spurs and Liverpool, will tell us more about whether they can sustain this strong start but, right now, their fans will be enjoying what they are seeing”

    MORNING GOONERS

    Ivan Toney branded Arsenal “cringey” for their Twitter jibes.

    The England new boy enraged the Gunners by posting “Nice kickabout with the boys” after his Brentford side beat them 2-0 last season.

    But Arsenal stars hit back after winning 3-0 on Sunday.

    Toney said: “Once was funny but the second time was a bit cringey.

    “I bit my tongue, I wanted to reply, I wanted to nibble.

    “But fair play to them, they played very well. They are a different Arsenal side to what we played before. They are doing well.”

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has been accused of “mismanagement” after bringing on 15-year-old Ethan Nwaneri in the 3-0 win over Brentford on Sunday.

    Despite the next transfer window being MONTHS away, Arsenal are eyeing a move for a midfielder.

    Eintracht Frankfurt’s Jesper Lindstrom has landed himself on the radar of the North London club.

    The 22-year-old helped the German side win the Europa League last term.

    Wenger ‘wanted to hit’ Geoff Shreeves

    Sky Sports' coverage has taken the Premier League into orbit over the past 30 years — and nobody has been closer to the action than the channel’s chief football interviewer, GEOFF SHREEVES.

    In his new book, Cheers, Geoff! Tales from the Touchline, he reveals some of the secrets of the inner sanctum, including a brush with Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger.

    I FIRST interviewed Arsene Wenger when he joined Arsenal in 1996.

    We’d speak 30 times a season, over the 21 years he was in charge.

    I know what makes him tick, he knows how I work but there are still moments when the relationship spills over into antagonism.

    After Arsenal had been beaten 8-2 by Manchester United at Old Trafford in 2011, there was no room for soft-soap questions — Wenger had to face an inquisition.

    I asked if he would resign and if he thought the board would back him. Brutal questions.

    I could see the anger building in his eyes and afterwards Arsenal’s head of media, Mark Gonnella said: “The boss has just told me he wanted to hit you during that interview, he was so angry.”

    Years later, Arsene told me: “Geoff, I wanted to hit you that day, it’s true. But you were not the only one — there were many others.”

    Toney slams ‘cringey’ Arsenal 

    Ivan Toney branded Arsenal “cringey” for their Twitter jibes.

    The England new boy enraged the Gunners by posting “Nice kickabout with the boys” after his Brentford side beat them 2-0 last season.

    That tweet was repeated by Alexandre Lacazette when Arsenal defeated the Bees at the Emirates last term — and again by Gabriel when his team won 3-0 at Brentford on Sunday.

    But striker Toney — called up by England for the first time before Friday’s clash with Italy — said: “Once was funny but the second time was a bit cringey.

    “I bit my tongue, I wanted to reply, I wanted to nibble.

    “But fair play to them, they played very well. They are a different Arsenal side to what we played before. They are doing well.”

    Ramsey agreed to Arsenal stay

    Ex-Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has revealed he agreed to stay at the club in 2019 before his free transfer exit to Juventus.

    He says there was a contract put on the table that he was happy to sign, only for the Premier League club to withdraw it.

    He told The Times: "It all happened… I agreed to a contract they proposed.

    “Things went quiet for a few weeks. I was telling my agent, ‘Let’s do it,’ then all of a sudden the contract was no longer there. So there was nothing to sign or agree.

    “It was a difficult start for a few months with Unai [Emery].

    “As the season was going on, I was playing more and playing really well.

    "Then January came and I had to make a decision whether I carried on and saw what happened or whether I agreed somewhere.”

    Crooks not a fan of Xhaka

    BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks still isn't on the Granit Xhaka hype train.

    The 29-year-old captained the Gunners to a 3-0 victory over Brentford on Sunday and looks reborn.

    Fans, despite a sour past, are now singing his name.

    However, Crooks still isn't a fan.

    Crooks wrote in his Team of the Week column: "I don’t like Granit Xhaka. I find him confrontational, overly aggressive and altogether irritating.

    "Nevertheless, on his day he’s a very good player. He should have left Arsenal years ago.

    "However, for some reason he has not only stayed at the club, but also occasionally wears the captain’s armband, such is his popularity these days.

    "Against Brentford he looked very impressive and so did Arsenal.

    "I would like to know why Brentford didn’t look up for this game, but the Gunners were so good I rather suspect that even if they had it wouldn’t have changed anything – Arsenal were that good. Most worrying."

    Hoddle hails Arsenal

    Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle has backed Arsenal to be title contenders in a few years.

    The Gunners are currently sat top of the Premier League table on 18 points.

    Hoddle said: "They are a group of youngsters that I think could be looking to challenge the league in two years’ time, let alone we all have to beat Manchester City.

    “Perhaps not yet, their battle will be getting into the top four.

    "But they have a team and squad that’s going to grow, which is a good sign for Arsenal.”

    Does Nwaneri get paid?

    Ethan Nwaneri made his professional debut for Arsenal at the weekend in the 3-0 win over Brentford.

    However, the 15-year-old's meteoric rise has led to questions over how much he is paid.

    Players cannot sign a professional contract until they turn 17.

    Nwaneri is yet to even leave school, with his GCSE exams scheduled for next year when he will be 16.

    He is unable to earn a weekly salary while in education, according to The Mirror.

    Once he leaves school Nwaneri will be able to sign scholarship forms.

    PSV open to selling Gakpo

    PSV Eindhoven have admitted they would be open to selling Arsenal target Cody Gakpo if the right offer arrived.

    Gakpo was also linked with a move to Manchester United, Everton, Leeds and Southampton during the summer transfer window.

    PSV’s director of football told Voetbal International: “I can say with my hand on my heart that there has been no offer for Cody to which the management or the supervisory board have said: ‘We must do this’.

    “We did state that if there were certain offers, we would have to sell.

    “Not only from a financial point of view, but also because agreements were made with the Gakpo camp before my time”
