How the previous failings of Arsenal’s transfer policy are about to be overcome – and how!

They also tell us that Giroud doesn’t want to go to France (too much garlic I suppose) so instead Lyon will buy Bertrand Traoré from Chelsea for around £16m, and they’ll take Manchester City centre-half Eliaquim Mangala.

4: Something new – Martial!

“Arsenal ready shock £40m move for out of favour Manchester United striker Antonio Martial” just about fits that bill.  Not quite sure that it rings true with me, but I don’t make these things up.

5: Gaetan Laborde

Arsenal are “eyeing up” a striker from Bordeaux “to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new season.”  And according to the wonderfully named Foot Mercato, Laborde is the man.  He’s 23 and scored 13 goals and made five assists last season.  Liverpool didn’t want him, so he must be coming our way, not least as he is cheap, and that is what Arsenal like.

6: Leon Goretzka

Although the “Schalke star” has dismissed such tittle tattle,  Sky Sports says Arsenal have made a £21m offer for the German international midfielder Goretzka, who has been in the Confederations Cup in Russia.  He’s only got one year left on his contract, and we know that is DANGEROUS.

7: Thomas Lemar

Yep, with 14 goals, and 14 assists Arsenal are 4/5 favourites ahead of Tottenham to sign Thomas Lemar  according to HITC.  Quite why is unclear.

8: Mario Lemina

Now according to his agent Arsenal will be making a bid in the next few days – and to show how serious this is, Lemina’s agent is “set to” get in touch with Arsenal.  That’s in the Star.

9: Etebo “understands” that Turkish Super Lig club Genclerbirligi S.K. have “set the ball rolling” in their bid to sign one of the most talented young players in Africa, Oghenekaro Etebo.

He’s 21 and playing with CD Feirense in Portugal, but Manchester United, Arsenal, Leicester City, West Brom and Lyon are “thought” to “be keeping tabs” on the attacking midfielder.

10.  M’Baye Niang

Milan have allegedly agreed terms with Everton for M’Baye Niang, but is not satisfied with this and say the striker is “waiting for Arsenal to step forward.”

11: Ezri Konsa

He’s a Charlton Athletic defender and Arsenal and Tottenham are “battling it out” to land him.

Mind you this is according to the Express, which also reported that Jeremy Corbyn is losing all his support after he “snubbed” an ex-servicemen’s event in order to flounce around a pop concert.  In his speech Mr Corbyn said “The commentariat got it wrong,” and I think that is a name we should use for the everyday mishmash of transfer news commentators.

The commentariat.

Nice one.

More later, unless Sir Hardly recovers.

    You didn’t mention the story on Caughtoffside re the ‘stunning’ Sanchez/Aguero exchange deal…..

    ‘Arsenal and Man City consider stunning player exchange deal, 63-goal pair to swap places’

    Haven signed one (Kolasinac) out of the two or three new signings Le Prof said he’ll do this summer to reinforced his first team squad in preparedness for next season’s campaign, those mass media rumours on Arsenal transfers this summer will come to an end when Arsenal concluded their remaining one or two signings. So, the ball is in Le Prof’s court to put the media’s Arsenal transfer rumours to rest by concluding his remaining one or two signings he wants to do with the minimum delays if possible.

    Furthermore, due to the outrageous transfer fees being slammed on their players by Monaco and Leon according to media reports, it’s looking unlikely now if Arsenal will be able to cope with the purported transfers of Kylian Mbappe and Alexandre Lacasette to Arsenal anymore during this summer window.

    The sum of £57m transfer fee is reported by the media to have been placed on Lacasette’s head as was reportedly announced by the Leon president before Lacasette could be transferred out of Leon to another club. And since it has become a public knowledge that Arsenal are in need to sign another specialist striker this summer and might have reshown their interest to sign Lacasette, his former transfer fee of £44m has now been increased to £57m because Arsenal want him. Hmmm. And Monaco too are reportedly to have hiked the possible transfer fee of Mbappe to over £100m because Real Madrid and Arsenal are reported to have shown interest to sign him this summer. Hmmm.

    Not be wasting our thoughts on these two targets possible arrival at the Emirates Stadium this summer, I think we the Gooners should thank God that we have two specialist senior strikers of Giroud and Welbeck and two adaptable senior ones of Sanchez and Walcott in the current Arsenal first team squad to really on for next season’s campaign. And a promising Arsenal youth team of many goals scorer of Eddie Nketiah could break in into the first team squad next season and becomes our own Mbappe if Le Prof gives him the chance to break in into the first team squad by promoting him there after he has subjected him to series tests in the Arsenal summer break friendlies and the Charity Shield match to see if he has the strong goals scoring spring that will enabled him to take on the Premier League challenge despite his dwarf looking size. He could become a spite fire in the Arsenal forwards.

    Everybody gets bored of the transfer stories at this time of the season.

    I am sure there is something ironic in this site posting lots of stories complaining about the stories other media outlets are posting about transfer rumours.

  • Ah well, Matt, irony. The opposite of wrinkly.
