The Transfer Index part 5: the 33 players tipped to be joining Arsenal this year (and those going as well)

By Sir Hardly Anyone

Taking all the rumours we have seen so far, here is the list of players that Arsenal are most certainly going to sign this summer according to the English newspapers.   They got 3 right out of 110 tries last year.  Can they improve their rating this time around???

 

 

 

Part 1: Players coming in – players listed for the first time in this chart have the cunning entry word “New” written in the first column.  Clever eh?

No  Player  Club  Position Notes 
 1 Marcelo Allende  Deportes Santa Cruz Attack m’f  Had 3 trials, training with first team.  Signing today!!!!  Actually that was last week.
2 Karim Benzema Real Mad F’wd Definitely going to either AFC or Chelsea

Part 2: Outgoing Players

No  Player  Club  Notes 
 1 Alexis Man C Guardiola making £50m offer his summer priority
2 Alexis Chelsea Will play out contract and go on a free to Chelsea.
3 Alexis Man U Has already agreed deal
5 Krystian Bielik Birmingham City keen to extend loan for another year.
6 Bellerin Barcelona Barce will sign him; no, he is happy to stay
7 Campbell Fenerbahce Currently in talks to sign
8 Jenkinson Newcastle Just promoted, need players
9 Ospina Fenerbahce
10 Lucas Perez PSG He’s an “outcast” according to “reports”
11 Wojciech Szczesny Napoli Every newspaper seems to have this one.
NEW Nathan Tella Southampton Deal done and completed

Such is the excitement about players going that Talk Sprout on their own have given us a new listing:

 

Part 3: Coaching staff

Chelsea’s goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon is “set to” follow Cech to Arsenal .

That’s about it for this week.  When we find some more we’ll let you know, but with only 56 days to go before the jolly old window opens itself again, we think the journalists could do a bit better.  There are 117 days before the window shuts so really they need to come up with one new name a day if they are to beat the old record comfortably.

  • Leon

    I think Mbappe is off the list if reports of him agreeing to sign for Real Madrid are true.
    And Man City won’t be signing any u18s for a couple of years now.

  • Gwin

    It seems those who draw this list of players get their inspiration from weed.

  • Zuruvi

    And every cloud has a silver lining. We can always depend on the tiny Tots to cheer us up in these not-at-all exciting times.

    Yes, the little Spurs again do what Spuds always do.

    It is now nearly 60 years since the lousy Spuds last won the league.

    And it is now more than 25 years since the little Tots last won any trophy of substance.

    Spurs loses to West Ham. And their title dreams nosedive.

  • Steve Vallins

    Sorry totally off subject how did Lloris stay on the pitch last night ?
    Nowhere near the ball and completely takes out the West Ham player Pigmol trying to influenceing the result of a game involving one of their darlings

  • Josif

    @Steve

    If you have been around for a while, you might have read a piece of data that I’ve been boring people with – Spuds have gone 75 league games without a red card.

    Why? Well, that’s something nobody from the media would dare to ask.
