Arsenal make enquiry for Didier Drogba -Juventus make £10m Walcott offer -Gooner Jenkinson

Morning Gooners.

Finally the international break is over and we can get back to the serious business of Arsenal.

Here's a quick round-up of how our Gunners on duty for their countries got on:

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played 69 minutes of England's 1-1 draw with Ukraine at Wembley last night. Theo Walcott was not involved as he'd already been released from the squad due to illness.

Aaron Ramsey captained Wales as they lost 6-1 to Serbia at the Karadjordje Stadium. Ramsey played the whole 90 minutes and was yellow carded.

Thomas Vermaelen played the whole 90 minutes as Belgium held Croatia to a 1-1 in Brussels.

Neither Lukas Podolski or Per Mertesacker started in Germany's win over Austria. However the attacker was used as a second half substitute brought on after 75 minutes in his sides 2-1 win.

Johan Djourou played the whole 90 minutes of Switzerland's 2-0 victory over Albania in Lucerne.

Lukasz Fabianski was an unused substitute in Poland 2-0 win over Moldova.

Santi Cazorla was a 64 minute substitute for David Silva in Spain's 1-0 win over Georgia.

Olivier Giroud played 61 minutes for France in their 3-1 win over Belarus. Laurent Koscielny and Abou Diaby were unused substitutes.

Elsewhere, The Sun is reporting Arsenal have made enquiries with the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua about Didier Drogba. Personally I'd be very surprised if this were true.

And in the same report, the newspaper claims Juventus are prepared to pay £10m for Theo Walcott. I can't see Theo leaving for Italy either.

Finally for today, I really enjoyed reading Carl Jenkinson's thoughts on his first full year at the club on the official site. You should too.

That's it for today. More tomorrow.
