I swear that the silly season is now in full swing with the latest Arsenal transfer rumours becoming more and more bizarre by the hour.
This afternoon we had the “announcement” from a Udinese director that the Gunners had “made an offer” for a middle-of-the-road, unknown Columbian that has been injured for half the season just gone, and now this evening it appears Arsenal have “approached Chelsea” to see if they would be willing to sell us Kurt Zouma. Here is the tweet from the “Italian transfer guru”……

Now this is so unlikely for so so so many reasons it just doesn’t bear thinking about! As if Chelsea would even consider selling the best youth player to come through their ranks since John Terry, but to make it even worse the lad has been injured for the last three months, and apparently will struggle to be fit for the beginning of next season.
This may make it a little hard for Zouma to get through a medical even if Chelsea were king enough to let us buy him lol.
So from this latest rumour I can only assume that the media have run out of any credible targets and are now looking at the most ludicrous links to fill the space in their papers and websites while we wait for the Euros to begin and we will have something solid to talk about again.
But wait! Maybe it’s true…..
