114 players said to be about to join Arsenal, van Aanholt to Kurzawa

By Sir Hardly Anyone

There is a fabulous example of the insanity that journalists expect you to believe. Localetti who is a midfielder.   The Express told us that the player would decide where to go after the Euros, and the asking price was £34m asked.  Now according to Football 365 Arsenal have offered £69m.

Of course I am sure each “source” would say they were just repeating what someone else said.  As for whether arsenal actually want him or not, who knows!

We’ve now cut the list of 114 players into two.  Here is part one: Patrick van Aanholt to Layvin Kurzawa.
