Gunners bid £20m for Montella

Montella is regarded as one of Italian football's most promising strikers but has had problems at Roma since arriving at Sampdoria in the summer.
The Italian press has also claimed that the Gunners are making a move for Roberto Donadoni, who is currently out of contract at AC Milan.
The 36-year-old playmaker is expected to respond shortly.
Keegan wants regular Scotland fixture
England boss Kevin Keegan wants his side to meet Scotland more often, possibly every two years.
He is hoping that good behaviour of fans at the Euro 2000 play-off will make that possible.
He said that if the fans respond to a good-spirited game, "It'll give me and Craig Brown the strength to make it every two years or something like that.
"It's crazy sometimes to go looking halfway round the world for a friendly when you've got one on your doorstep."
