Arsenal linked with 52 players in January. The full details.




By Sir Hardly Anyone

Interesting article in Sport Witness which begins “While Sergej Milinković-Savić has been linked with a move to the Premier League for the past few years, Arsenal have never been pushed forward as his destination.”   

Except that during the last month that player has now been mentioned in no less than eight separate articles as being of interest to Arsenal – and three of those articles have all come in…  Sport Witness.   It is, as they say, a funny ol’ game, this journalism lark.

Here are the new totals and the relevant dates…

  • Number of players Arsenal said to be signing: 52
  • Most mentioned player: Mykhaylo Mudryk (46 reports)
  • Most repeated player by publications: Mykhaylo Mudryk (16 repeats)
  • Number of players mentioned for the first time in this summary: 4
  • Number of updated accounts: 12
  • Window dates: Opens Sunday January 1 2023 and will close 11pm on Tuesday January 31; La Liga and Serie A will not open until Monday January 2.
  • Total number of reports reviewed: 259

  1. Sir Hardly

    I’d check those dates: “Window dates: Opens Sunday January 1 2023 and will close 11pm on Tuesday January 31”

  2. Sorry mis read. Apologies Sir!

    Why I’m here. Is this a record for the winter window? Even for us this seems extraordinarily high.

  3. On a side note, Andy Madley is in charge of Manchester City vs Everton on New Year’s Eve, but guess who has been appointed to referee Arsenal vs Newcastle on 3rd January? Andy Madley…
