Keeper future in doubt
Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone has yet to open talks with the Gunners over a new deal as his future remains shrouded in doubt.
Mannone has been thrust into the first-team following injuries to Wojciech Szczesny and Lukas Fabianksi and has not looked out of place as the Gunners have got the season off to a fine start.
However the keeper is facing an uncertain future as he has less than 12 months to run on his contract and talks have yet to begin over a new deal.
"Neither myself nor anyone from my family or friends have spoken about any deal," he told Arsenal.com. "At the moment I am really happy and just focusing on training and playing well."
However, the 24-year-old is just happy to be getting more games under his belt and is focused on trying to keep his place in the Gunners side.
"The boss has given me the chance," he added. "I have to keep going and prove myself in every single game. This is my best time at Arsenal so I would crazy to not take the chance to put up a fight for my place."
