Arsenal fans are well used to Arsene Wenger pulling a fast one on us during a transfer window. Usually the Frenchman keeps us hoping and says he is looking for players before not making any transfers and saying that he just couldn’t find any.
This time though, the boss has been saying that he is unlikely to anything more than the Elneny signing (unless there is an ‘exceptional’ opportunity, of course), but all of a sudden the last week of the window seems to have gone a bit mad, rumour-wise. According to The Mirror we could be about to finally sign the Spanish striker Alvaro Morata with a huge bid to Juventus. The report also claims that we have had an initial bid rejected by Napoli for their midfield star Jorginho but could return with another.
The Evening Standard is reporting that we may have already agreed a fee of around £23 million for the Dinamo Kev wide forward Yarmolenko and also that we might be back in for the Celta Vigo striker Nolito after Barcelona dropped out of talks.
There are other rumours that it might be the Real Madrid star Isco that Wenger is going to ,and we have apparently upped the offer for the young Leicester defender Ben Chilwell. Hopefully at least one of these rumours are true and they do seem to be focused on the attacking side of things, so has Wenger accepted that Arsenal need more firepower to win the title? Is Wenger lining up a secret surprise for Arsenal fans?
