There is a lack of transfer gossip involving Arsenal today, however, one player that has been linked with us is Leicester City’s, James Maddison. Now, some context, he is only being linked with us because TV pundit Tony Cascarino reckons he would be perfect for us, so it is not really what you would call transfer gossip.
It is being reported in the media today that Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has told his teammates that he will not stay with the club if he does not get more regular first team football.
Spanish giants Barcelona could be set to offload as many as 11 players so they can fund new acquisitions, according to the Daily Mirror.
If this is true then there are at least three players that the Mirror claims could be sold that Arsenal are interested in, or have been recently.
A little light today with the transfer gossip, well, it was first thing in the morning but as the day has progressed there has been a drip of speculation coming from our beloved media.
There has been one constant over the last month and that is that loads of players are being linked with us. We are talking a LOT, I even did a post about 20 players linked with Arsenal in March and that was not a comprehensive list.
It has actually been quiet for a few days with regards to Arsenal transfer gossip but this morning we have at least three reports from the media, though, in all fairness, one of them has been doing the rounds for a few days now.
Marc Overmars sends a very clear hands-off message to Arsenal, but……
Former Arsenal legend Marc Overmars is not interested in helping his old club with their interest in Nicolas Tagliafico, in fact, the Ajax sporting director has sent an unequivocal hands-off message.
It is being claimed in the media that Arsenal are among the clubs interested in signing Eintracht Frankfurt goal scoring phenomenon Luka Jovic. The Metro, citing Marca, claim that Chelsea, Man Utd, Barcelona and Real Madrid are among the high profile clubs that are keen on signing the 21 year old.
