The 82 players tipped to come to Arsenal this summer

By Sir Hardly Anyone

I have a nasty feeling that some of our esteemed journalistic colleagues do little than work through the list of players in the world in alphabetical order, tipping them to come to Arsenal.  For how else do we account for the fact five of the seven new names in this week’s list appear in the top 14 alphabetical list?

But no it must be a coincidence surely.  Certainly the six players who have had their transfer details updated since last time are more evenly spread out.

Oh and just in case you are thinking of doing your own search, beware of HammersNews website – according to our protection software they’ve been infected with a Trojan.  (Not to say that for sure, because sometimes you can get false alerts, but I haven’t been in to check a story they have about a transfer.)

Here is the list.  82 players being tipped to come to Arsenal one month before the transfer window even opens is an all time record.

    “If you throw enough mud eventually something will stick”. Maybe one or two will sign and you already know the headlines when that happens.All clickbait really and you know what?, it works because we all click on the links.
