Are we looking at a whole new Arsenal here Gooners? The sort of Arsenal that we all wanted when even those Arsene Wenger knows besters among us felt that we had reached a stale place and real change was needed?
Only time will tell, of course, as all the things that are suggesting this to me are just Arsenal transfer rumours so far. It could be that a month from now the Gunners will have sold our star striker Alexis Sanchez and to a direct Premier League rival such as Man City to boot.
We might also still be waiting for the boss to sign any more new players and have seen our transfer targets like Kylian Mbappe and Alexandre Lacazette sign for other clubs or declare their intentions to stay where they are. Let’s be a little bit optimistic though, shall we?
Two stories going around the football rumour mill today give us good reasons to feel that way as well, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is about to strike a significant blow in the transfer pursuit of Monaco striker Mbappe, with a huge bid of around £125 million.
We also have the Daily mail saying that Wenger is taking a tough stance with Alexis Sanchez, despite the fact that the Chilean could leave on a free transfer next summer.
Apparently the Frenchman is adamant that Arsenal will only sell to a clum from another league, so cross your fingers that both of these rumours are true and we may just have a hard hitting Arsenal on our hands again.
