So which players have the journalists made up in the last couple of days as heading for Arsenal? Here we go with the latest make-believe – and these journos sure are getting jittery as club after club is totally failing to sign anyone at the moment.
All told we have 28 players listed so far – although one of them remains a cheat since HITC wouldn’t say who it was. The list is at the end. Here are the latest…
1: Wilfred Ndidi.
He is being touted as Lucas Torreira’s replacement on the basis that Arsenal most certainly need a player better than Torreira if they are going to compete seriously. (That’s the Mirror’s view not mine).
2: Bruno Guimaraes
TBR Football claim that Arsenal are intensifying their attempts to sign the midfielder from Athletico Paranaense.
3: Layvin Kurzawa
This is from Football London although they blame RMC Sport. He’s a PSG defender, and we are offering him a five year contract. Kia Joorabchian is involved in the deal. “The defender is out of contract in the summer, and the Gunners have reportedly started talks over a five-year contract for the full-back.” The Mirror runs the story too, but we should remember that the Mirror runs FoLo so you can’t believe a way they write.
4: James Maddison
“Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants to make Leicester City playmaker James Maddison his club’s marquee signing”
That is from Football Insider.
5: Dr Gary O’Driscoll to leave
And he is off to Liverpool after ten years with Arsenal. What makes this interesting is that for most of those ten years journalists and bloggers have run the story that Arsenal get more injuries, and players are out for longer, than any other Premier League club. And yet Liverpool want the man who has overseen this endless disaster to be the head of their medical team!!!
Could it be that the journalists and bloggers have been lying to us all this time? And if so will they apologise profusely and say how they made it all up?
If you spot such an apology will you please write in. The accusations have been so huge and gone on for so long I am sure that the apologies will appear in very big letters.
6: Yan Couto
Some sources are still suggesting Yan Couto is a possible transfer, but the Mirror now tells us that “Arsenal are “set to miss out on” the player. So he’s gone before we even knew about him. He’s a teenage defender playing for Coritiba.
7: Djene Dakonam
Arsenal and Tottenham ‘in transfer battle for Getafe defender Djene Dakonam’ .
8: We’re not going to tell you.
Red London has the headline that “David Ornstein on signings Arsenal ‘are looking to make’ before window closes” but then refrains from telling us who the players are.
Mikel Arteta hints that Shkodran Mustafi will stay at Arsenal announces
10. Dries Mertens
A curious source for this one: the Shields Gazette who simply say that Arsenal want the player from Napoli. They blame the Metro for this make believe. He can play centre forward or on the wing.
Here is the full list of transfers that are proposed that we have found thus far…
