Forget the lockdown: Arsenal now linked to 70 different players!!!

by Sir Hardly Anyone

Yes this is looking like becoming the all time record transfer window for Arsenal – in fact it is getting so back the media are going to rename it the transfer garage door.  It can still slam shut after it is all over but without the danger of breaking glass.

We really do have 70 names and a quick glance suggests they are all different players.  And seven of these (yes a whole 10%) are new for this table.

All of them have been seriously suggested by the ever idiotic media as players whom Arsenal will sign this summer.  And that despite the virus, the lack of money, and the fact that Arsenal have sunk to being a mid-table club.

So without any more whatnot, here we go…

The 70 players Arsenal are tipped by journalists to be signing this summer….
