This could all be one big wind up for us fans of Arsenal. We have been primed and prepared for disappointment in almost every transfer window of the last decade, but following some real big name transfers like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, our pessimism has now been liberally peppered with hope.
So the news, (I use that term lightly) that the Gunners are on the verge of completing a transfer so amazing it could be called Spiderman, is maybe not as unbelievable as it would have been up until a couple of years ago. A Eurosport report has revealed that a well known football agent called Muzzi Ozcan has tweeted that Arsene Wenger is about to shock the Premier League with the best transfer move of the summer.
He wrote, “Arsenal will be making the transfer of the season ! The deal isn’t to far from being complete ! Will update in the coming days.”
And to give us a little extra reason to believe, we should remember that the agent does list the likes of Olivier Giroud and Mathieu Debuchy among his clients. So who, if anyone, could it be? Is the fact that both of his Arsenal clients are French a clue? Can anyone think of a French player that Arsenal could do with or have been linked with? (cough, Benzema, ahem). I would not hold your breath if I was you Gooners, but you just never know.
Who do you think this top transfer target might be?
