Besides raining on Arsenal's parade, Toby Alderweireld's future has also prompted the Lillywhites to make a move on Saliba . And it would only rub salt into the wounds if Saliba chose their dearest rivals Spurs over them.

Dominican authorities have said that Ortiz was not the intended target in the attack.

"We continue to be incredibly appreciative of his kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this hard time".

He then underwent an exploratory surgery after being transported to Mass.

Several people have been arrested, including Victor Hugo Gomez Vasquez, the alleged mastermind of the plot. He was named World Series MVP for his performance against the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013.
