Arsenal have secured European football - but it's not the competition that Gunners fans had been dreaming of after moving four points clear of Tottenham with only three fixtures remaining.Mikel Arteta's side had been in pole position to claim the fourth and final Champions League spot, but a collapse during the business end of the season has seen them settle for the Europa League.

Juventus new boy Dusan Vlahovic is 'dating the Italian Megan Fox' and Miss Italy winner
Juventus signing is reportedly dating Miss Italy winner Carolina Stramare, which may suggest why the Serbian wanted to stay in the country during the transfer window.Stramare has been compared to Hollywood star Megan Fox due to several physical similarities, and she was awarded the Miss Italy crown in 2019.Vlahovic was targeted by Arsenal this January as Mikel Arteta desperately searched for a new centre-forward, with the club now left with just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah.But Vlahovic chose to move to Serie A giants Juventus, and he has the full support of the 23-year-old model.Stramare has more than 350,000 followers on Instagram, and has been dubbed the 'Italian Megan Fox' by multiple outlets in Italy.The winner of Miss Italy has reportedly 'stole Vlahovic's heart', and Stramare is now watching her partner lead the line for one of the biggest clubs in the country.Vlahovic captured a lot of attention during a breakthrough 18 months at Fiorentina, but made the move to Juventus for £66million, much to the disappointment of his former supporters who protested the transfer.The Serbian forward netted 41 goals in 64 matches for Fiorentina, and the Old Lady fought off competition from the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham to secure the star.
Arsenal's refusal to activate Alexander Isak's release clause makes perfect sense
Arsenal’s attempts to sign a striker on transfer deadline day ended in failure after the club decided against activating Real Sociedad target man Alexander Isak’s release clause.The Gunners made a late move to swoop for Isak after missing out on Dusan Vlahovic, who joined Juventus in a £63million deal in the last week of the transfer window.They entered negotiations with the La Liga outfit, only to be quoted the clause for the minimum buyout fee written into his contract.La Real reportedly demanded Isak’s £77m release clause to be paid in full and informed Arsenal they would not accept a lower amount.According to The Athletic, the north London club deemed the amount to exceed his actual market value and withdrew their interest, focusing on other targets.The 22-year-old has scored eight goals in 25 appearances across all competitions, but only four in 18 La Liga outings.Isak, a Sweden international, has been tipped as the nation’s biggest attacking talent since Zlatan Ibrahimovic and caught the eye with some impressive performances at Euro 2020.While technical director Edu Gaspar may have been right to decline to pay the clause, the Brazilian will have some feelings of regret after failing to add a striker to Mikel Arteta’s squad before the transfer window shut.The club also approached Espanyol about a move for 12-goal striker Raul de Tomas, but were again told to pay his release clause, revealed to be €75m (£63m) by the club’s president.Soon, it became apparent that Arsenal would not be signing a striker, which means Arteta must cope with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah until the end of the season.Both strikers can leave on free transfers at the end of the campaign as their contracts expire in June, which could

Newcastle transfer target Dan Burn only has three fingers on his right hand
Newcastle United transfer target Dan Burn would bring with him Premier League experience but only three fingers on his right hand.The Brighton defender is familiar to most football fans because of his huge 6'7" inch frame which sees him measure in as the tallest player in the English top flight.His size has helped him to bag 15 goals during his career which has also featured spells at Wigan, Fulham and Birmingham.However, a lesser-known fact about Burn's body is that he is missing one of his digits.The 29-year-old has never addressed the fact in an interview but there is an explanation.According to The Free Library, he was wearing a ring on it when climbing a fence aged 13.And the item of jewellery is said to have got caught on a spike which resulted in the finger being ripped off.Having been on the south coast since 2018, Burn could now be set for a move to the north east before Transfer Deadline Day on Monday.

Arsenal to target Dominic Calvert-Lewin if Dusan Vlahovic transfer falls through
Arsenal will move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin if they fail to sign Dusan Vlahovic.But any attempt to sign the Everton and England striker will not be made until the summer - and is certain to be strongly resisted by the Merseysiders.Fiorentina star Vlahovic is Arsenal's top target and they have made it clear they are willing to do a deal worth over £50m to bring him in now.But the Serbian international wants to join a club that can offer him Champions League football next season - and Juventus are currently favourites to sign him.Tottenham have also enquired about Vlahovic but Juve believe the player wants to join them.The Gunners also fear Manchester City could yet come into the running for the 21-year-old, who has scored 20 times in 24 games this season.So Arsenal are drawing up contingency plans - and Calvert-Lewin is the man they will turn to if Vlahovic turns them down.The Gunners have kept tabs on Toffees star Calvert-Lewin for years and believe the 24-year-old's best years are still to come.But Everton will resist any attempt to sign him, despite the financial situation at Goodison Park meaning sales are likely this summer whether they stay up or not.Calvert-Lewin is regarded as a key player by the club both now and for the future, with recently sacked boss Rafa Benitez trying to build a team around him.The 11-cap striker started the season with three goals in three games but was then ruled out for four months through injury, and has only recently returned.Arsenal could say goodbye to three strikers between now and the summer with the futures of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah up in the air.Gunners boss Mikel Arteta wants a big name brought in to help his team take the next step and
