Jack's next target -Sagna's delight -Ton target for AOC -Guardiola's Arsenal bound?

Morning Gooners.

A few pieces of news for you today, in what will be a very quick round-up.

Jack Wilshere will play in a behind closed doors friendly along with Bacary Sagna and Emmanuel Frimpong within the next week in order for the trio to build on their fitness work.

Arsene Wenger had previously stated that the club wanted to organise a game for Wilshere during the international break and now reserve team manager Terry Burton has confirmed the intention.

Burton said:
"We’ll try and fix them another game. We hope it will be another game towards Jack’s recovery."
Meanwhile Bacary Sagna has admitted his delight on his return to action.

Sagna said:

"It is amazing to be back, I have been waiting for this moment for five months. 
"This was my target: to come back and play, firstly for the under-21 team. Everything went well and we won, so I am very happy."
Burton said post match he was impressed with Sagna's performance and the fact he plays football with a smile on his face.

Sagna meanwhile has praised Carl Jenkinson.

The Frenchman said:

"He has been really good, and has learned a lot. He is a bit more confident with the ball, and is very solid as a defender. 
"He brings a lot to the team, and I am very happy for him because he is a hard worker, a very good guy and is going to be one of the best."
It's going to be quite a decision for the manager to make when Sagna is match fit as who will start. I think Jenkinson has done tremendously well. But when Sagna is fully fit, I think the Frenchman comes straight back into the team.

Elsewhere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed he wants to win at least 100 caps for England and become a fan's favourite.

And finally, the Daily Star pick up on something former Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez has said about his old coach Pep Guardiola. Marquez thinks his former boss will next work in the Premier League and that Arsenal would be the perfect fit!

That's it for today. More tomorrow.
