There seems to be a new crazy Arsenal transfer rumour every single day, and today’s is that Alexandre Lacazette could be sold to fund our transfer chest this summer. It is true that the Frenchman rarely plays a full game, and the sending off against BATE last week has highlighted the fact that Emery may be worried that Laca is a bit hot-headed to stat on the field for the frenzied last 20 minutes of a game. But to sell such a brilliant striker is very unlikely in my mind especially considering the price of replacements. Could Emery be thinking of promoting Nketiah?
Arsenal signed a cracking youngster in Matteo Guendouzi for just 7million GBP from Lorient last summer, but there is now an emerging possibility that the Gunners could allow him to return to France with the Champions PSG, which is where he started his youth career.
Considering it is only February, there seems to be a hell of a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the moment. We all are well aware of the problems surrounding Mesut Ozil and Unai Emery and it would appear that the German is being forced out of the Emirates to reduce our massive wage bill. Whether that is true or not remains to be seen, but according to the Telegraph today, there are feelers being put out around Europe to try and find him a new club for next season. It is looking extremely like that Lord John is going to be winning his bet after all…

Are Arsenal’s transfer preferences going to move us forward? by Eddie Hoyte
It was bad enough that Arsenal fans were forced to believe that there were no funds available in the winter transfer window for Emery to buy any players at all, despite our massive injury problems, but now we are hearing that we will only have £45m in the summer window as well, despite being in profit last summer.
Paris Saint-Germain are said to be closing on a deal to sign Idrissa Gueye from Everton before the close of the current transfer window, but reports are coming in to claim that we are ‘confident’ of stealing a march on our rivals.
Alll Arsenal fans were full of hope when we finally got the deal for Denis Suarez over the line and he is now confirmed as coming to Arsenal on loan. We were also very positive about Yannick Carrasco and Ivan Perisic, but according to the Arsenal oracle David Ornstein, those deals are now dead in the water. He explained this morning in an article on the BBC website.
