It has been confirmed today that Antoine Griezmann will be leaving Atletico Madrid at the end of the Spanish season and will almost certainly sign for Barcelona and in some quarters that is being seen as bad news for Arsenal.
Arsenal are going to be linked with a huge amount of players this summer, that is the nature of the transfer window and some of those players will be donkeys but some will be diamonds.
It is those potential diamonds that we would want Unai Emery to at least try and sign and one such player is Lyon ace Moussa Dembele.
Reading through the latest Arsenal news I came across yet another player that we are supposedly interested in and it got me thinking, are these players being linked with us really an upgrade on what we already have at the Emirates?
Arsenal has been joined by a host of Premier League clubs, including Tottenham in the race to sign Bristol City’s youngster Lloyd Kelly, according to the latest transfer reports in the British media.
Kelly has had a stellar season with the Robins, he is just 20-year-old and has made no less than 43 appearances for the Championship side. Make no mistake, this lad is talented.
Transfer rumours are starting to ramp up now that the domestic season has been concluded and players that have previously been heavily linked with Arsenal are now starting to attract other interested parties.
There are three or four players that Arsenal have been linked with consistently over the last few months and one such player is Lille striker, Nicolas Pepe.
The latest rumours still have us in the running but behind Paris Saint Germain and Manchester United with the latter seen as the front runners despite PSG already having talks with Lille.
Real Madrid and Barcelona have both reportedly been linked with moves for two of our best players, according to a variety of reports in the media.
A couple of days ago we had to contend with the rumours claiming that the Spanish Champions wanted to sign Alexandre Lacazette.
The latest piece of Arsenal transfer gossip will be music to the ears of most Arsenal fans and not because of a potential recruit but because of a player that may finally be on his way out of the Emirates.
According to reports in France, Bordeaux is preparing to table a bid for midfield flop Mohamed Elneny.
