I swear that the silly season is now in full swing with the latest Arsenal transfer rumours becoming more and more bizarre by the hour.
Borussia Dortmund are claimed to have decided to force Henrikh Mkhitaryan to stay for the coming season, which will likely see him leave for free next summer.
The Armenian international has just the one year remaining on his current deal, and has already turned down his club’s advances to extend that deal beyond the new season.
Miroslav Bicanic has claimed that Marcelo Brozovic is being forced out of Inter Milan.
The Croatian international is set to jet off to France for the European Championships, but may be distracted as his future lies in the balance.
Arsenal’s clean sheet yesterday means that Petr Cech will be crowned the winner of the Premier League Golden Glove.
The 33 year-old is guaranteed to be the winner of said trophy, but may succumb to sharing the accolade with Manchester United’s David De Gea, who can tie should he not concede to Bournemouth on Tuesday.
There was some good news for Arsenal fans this week, without the pain or pleasure of actually watching our team perform, with the defeat of Premier League rivals Manchester United continuing the remarkable record of Arsenal qualifying for the Champions League under Arsene Wenger.
N’Golo Kante has been told that he will be allowed to leave Leicester City this summer, once they find a replacement, opening the door for a move to Arsenal or Chelsea.
There have been plenty of football managers linked with the Arsenal job down the years. Every time the team is on a bad run or puts in a lacklustre performance or simply does not get the right result, we hear the calls of Wenger out again.

As a huge number of fans are turning on our current manager Arsene Wenger, there is the need to bring light to some of the realities that exist with football and our club in general.
