Number of players tipped to be coming to Arsenal reaches 100! The full list.

By Sir Hardly Anyone

The idea of many bloggers and journalists is that there is no real planning going on by Arsenal when it comes to transfers.  All this business about having thousands of hours of video recordings which are analysed by computers and then people to find exactly the right player – that all counts for nought.

Instead the story we are told is that Arsenal get interested in a player, the story is leaked and then suddenly Manchester United, alerted to the fact that Arsenal want him, come in and offer more, seemingly having not bothered to think about the player before.

Arsenal however are never accused of hijacking purchases, rather Arsenal is always the victim.  But as a result of the hijacks they go rushing from one player to another to buy someone, anyone, because the media tells them, they were rubbish last year.

In reality the whole thing is nonsense – talk to anyone inside the business and you’ll find that months and months of research and planning go on through the season, discreet enquiries are made with the club, permission to discuss with the player’s agent is gained, and then the negotiators set to work.

It makes for a bit of a dull story, so the bloggers write in with their fanciful tales – such as Sport Witness telling us the deal with Nuno Tavares is done, only to tell us that “Brighton in late attempt to snatch” the player, while two different sites say he has had his medical, but can’t agree on which country that was done in.

Or consider the Locatelli saga  Arsenal make offer. Juventus leading (HITC).  Arsenal set to miss out (Shoot).   Bid launched. (F365). 40m Euro offer.AFC have not made a bid (Sports Mole)
