SIMON Mignolet is heading to the Emirates, according to the Sunday Mirror’s Brian McNally in his last piece for the paper.

McNally, who retires from football journalism after 40 years of reporting, says Arsenal are readying a £10m bid for the much-fancied Belgian star.

Liverpool have also been linked with an interest but McNally suggests that Arsene Wenger’s ability to offer Champions League football will be the enticement Mignolet needs to leave the club he has developed enormous affection for since being brought in by Steve Bruce in a £2m deal.

McNally also acknowledges though that Sunderland have already looked to open fresh contact talks with the player.
