Seven players newly tipped for transfer to Arsenal, in the past four days



By Sir Hardly Anyone

There is no football, the clubs are arguing about how it can be brought back, many players are worried about the arrangement, TV stations are putting the pressure on, the ghost game concept has been questioned in terms of crowds gathering…  Meanwhile away from football crowds have been gathering for picnics and seaside trips.  And Uefa and Fifa scandals of enormous proportions are rumbling across Europe, and what is the response of the journalists and bloggers?

Transfer news!

We have now got another seven players being linked with Arsenal plus a second group the details of whose transfers have been updated just of late.

I really didn’t think we were going to get any fantasy stories at all, but they continue to roll in.   The only blessing is that since Untold gave a formal definition of “reportedly” the use of that word has declined significantly.  Nice to know we have an impact in the illegal drinking dens of England, even if nowhere else.

Here we go with some of the latest tittle tattle…

1: NEW THIS WEEK- Glen Kamara

The blurb says that this is a player who can ‘play at any level’.  Well, he was certainly well trained since he used to play for us before going to Scotland.  Now he plays for Rangers, he is Finnish and a midfielder.   According to France Football, Arsenal, Aston Villa, Brighton and Marseille are interested in signing Glen Kamara from Rangers in the summer transfer window.

On the other hand it seems Marseille have run out of cash even though he is fairly inexpensive at around £8m

2:  UPDATE – George Lewis

Depending on which publication you read Arsenal are “set to” complete the signing of winger George Lewis or we already have (but have seemingly failed to announce the matter).

3:   NEW THIS WEEK – Kökcü

Edu, it is said, is pushing for this transfer.  Red London says Arsenal have made contact and he’ll cost £23m.   He plays for Sabah in Azerbaijan (which suggests that Sabah in one transfer will become the richest club in the republic) having previously been in Turkey with Giresunspor.

He plays in midfield and is 19 years old

4:  UPDATE – Thomas Partey

“Atletico Madrid Midfielder Reportedly Turns Down PSG For Arsenal” says the website PSG Talk who haven’t understand that “reportedly” is no longer an acceptable adverb.  He is a defensive midfielder.
He is 26 and from Ghana.

5:  UPDATE –  Layvin Kurzawa

“Arsenal have specific transfer plan and Layvin Kurzawa fits right in” according to the Express.    Unfortunately, they don’t actually tell us what the plan is.  Although we do know Kurzawa is a 27-year-old left-back.  Footy Extras says, “There is ‘zero chance’ Layvin Kurzawa will join the Blaugrana (Barcelona) in the next transfer window, according to reports in France.  The Paris Saint-Germain defender is out of contract this summer and has attracted the interest of several teams, including Mikel Arteta’s Gunners.  (Liga Financial)

6:  NEW THIS WEEK – Mauro Icardi

“Arsenal offered PSG striker Mauro Icardi transfer in swap deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, reports claim,” says The Sun.  He is a 27 years old striker.   So now we see the words replacing “reportedly” – they have moved over to “reports claim”.  Whose reports?  We are not told but FoLo, Tuttosport and Media Referee all run the piece.

7: NEW THIS WEEK – Dennis Gyfami

“Arsenal ‘close in’ on Leicester City’s Dennis Gyfami” says The Online Gooner.  He is a Ghanan right back aged 18.

8: NEW THIS WEEK – Mykola Matviyenko

The Daily Cannon says this will be a cut-price deal. He is a 24-year-old left-back.  who plays for Saky in Ukraine.   So what is it with all these left-backs?  Do we really need lots more left-backs?

9: Update –  Odsonne Edouard

The Gunners have scouted the Celtic strike extensively this season and will no doubt have been impressed by what they have seen says Football London who think we might have got him.

10 NEW THIS WEEK – Said Benrahma

He plays for Brentford, has got Crystal Palace fans talking over a photo of him for some reason, and now there are Arsenal links”  That according to Football.London   He is aged 24 and is a right-winger.

11: Update – Ryan Fraser

He was constantly tipped to be coming to Arsenal last time around, but now he sure is leaving Bournemouth and either going to Arsenal or Tottenham – at least according to  Football Insider, which avoids “reportedly” but says instead that they “understand”.

“The 26-year-old’s contract with the Cherries is set to expire at the end of the season, allowing him to join a new team for nothing in the summer.”

12: NEW THIS WEEK – Gerson

Arsenal are one of the clubs chasing Flamengo midfielder Gerson, with Raul Sanllehi driving the move, according to the player’s father according to the Daily Cannon.  They blame EPSN.  “Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund are also monitoring the midfielder” who is 22.

  1. “Understand.” As in, “Sky Sports understands… ”

    Spoiler alert: Sky Sports understand nothing. The same is likely to be true for any other source using that word.
