Hi everyone, we are only at the 24th June now and the official transfer window doesn’t yet open for another week, but there is lots of work being done by Arsenal on the transfer front, even if it just looks like Petr Cech if you look at all the papers.
Let’s give ourselves an update on ALL the transfer business done or in progress so far…..
OUT -Ryo Miyachi moved to St Pauli
OUT -Semi Ajayi moved to Cardiff
OUT -Diaby released pending possible Pay-per-play deal
IN -Vlad Dragomir from FC Timisoara
IN -Jeff Reine-Adelaide from Lens
IN -Yassin Fortune from Lens
IN – Petr Cech from Chelsea (Not QUITE confirmed lol)
Other deals in progress….
Carl Jenkinson is being loaned out again possibly to Sunderland or back to West Ham
Lukas Podolski admitted he’s in talks with Galatasary
David Ospina also in talks with Fenerbahce (what is it with Arsenal players and Turkish clubs?)
Joel Campbell likely to go to either Benfica, Real Sociedad or Fenerbahce (of course!)
Also the talks with Theo Walcott are still in progress for him to sign an extension.
Mikel Arteta still has to agree a one year extension
So as you can see, Arsenal and Wenger have not been sitting around twiddling their thumbs and hoping for things to happen. There has been a LOT of activity and lots of business still ongoing. Considering the work that has already been done there is no reason to think that we will have an unsuccessful transfer window. Be positive!
Onwards and Upwards!
