You may call me cynical (most people do!) but I have found through experience that the most ridiculous Arsenal transfer rumours appear when there is very little else to write about, like during the summer close season or especially during the no-mans-land of the international break, when there isn’t even a transfer window to use as an excuse.
Manchester United have supposedly opened contact with Hector Bellerin’s representatives about a potential future deal, and Arsenal are believed to be thoroughly unhappy with the reports.
The Spanish international emerged through the Gunners youth ranks in recent seasons, and has become a regular first-team member ever since.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has claimed he gives his all for Arsenal but wasn’t able to at his former club.
The Armenian international joined the club from Manchester United in January as part of a swap deal including Alexis Sanchez, and is already beginning to enjoy his football once again.
Arsenal have supposedly been quoted the asking price for Manchester United’s Chris Smalling.
The England international has been linked with a move to the Emirates since before he joined the Red Devils, and Arsene Wenger is supposedly a fan of the centre-back.
Supposed Arsenal target Timo Werner has named Manchester City and Man United as two clubs he couldn’t turn down a move to.
The 21 year-old has been strongly linked with a move to our club in recent weeks, but he appears to have poured water on the move.
Hector Bellerin has claimed that Alexis Sanchez demanded too much from his fellow Arsenal team-mates prior to his departure from the club.
The Chilean left the club to join Manchester United last month, in a deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction, and there was plenty of talk about his influence in the dressing room.
I know it’s only February and we hate to overdo it on the transfer front outside the actual transfer windows, but there is a number of stories which are popping up regarding Arsenal.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has insisted that he has nothing to prove after his failed Manchester United stint, adding that he is hoping to achieve more with Arsenal than he did with his former club.
