Well there is quite a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours flying around as the window begins in earnest. After yesterday’s news that the bid for the young Nigerian Henry Onyekuru was a load of old codswallop, we have some new possibilities which sound much more promising.
First of all https://www.lequipe.fr/Football/Actualites/Transfert-mercato-d-ete-au-tour-d-arsenal-de-convoiter-kylian-mbappe/806556 is reporting that the Gunners have made a 100m Euro bid for the striker we all want to see at Arsenal, Kylian Mbappe. This will more than double our record transfer fee and would be a real statement of intent by Wenger, and if it really does come off, then maybe the fans will start believing in Le Prof again and would certainly improve our chances of winning the Premier League next season.
If he does come, there would be little room for Olivier Giroud as our centre-forward, especially as Danny Welbeck is now back to full fitness as well. The Frenchman has not been happy with spending most of the season on the bench, and maybe he could get back to playing every week at Newcastle United, who are rumoured to have bid 22m or maybe West Ham United if Giroud prefers to stay in London? If we could get rid of Giroud and bring in Mbappe there will be lots of happy Arsenal fans around!
Another possible bit of good news is the rumour that Mesut Ozil and Arsenal have agreed to a new contract extension at a wage of £280,000-a-week. If true, this will mean a massive change in Arsenal’s wage structure and perhaps the Gunners really are serious about challenging for the title.
Would you be happy if these three rumours turn out to be true?
