The 36 players now tipped to be joining Arsenal and an unexpected departure

by Sir Hardly Anyone

We’ve now got 36 players being tipped to be coming to Arsenal, with enormous sums being suggested, just at a time when Arsenal has had its most expensive transfer window ever, and along with the rest of the Premier League is facing an unprecedented financial challenge.

Some of the stories are lifted from last year’s table and just given a run around once again, but as they are being tipped now for a summer transfer then into the melting pot they will go.

This is of course fake news of the highest order.  The stories are untrue, everyone knows they are untrue, but they are propagated over and over again.  The normal success rate for this gibberish is 3%, so on that basis one of these might be true.

However given that Arsenal is as deep in the financial mire as anyone else the chances are that none of them will happen this summer.
