A few weeks ago we ran an article titled “Some help in working out who to trust when it comes to Arsenal rumours” and one of the sources in that article was Charlie Watts at Goal.com.
I wrote this about Watts, “I find Charlie Watts to be close to Ornstein in credibility and he does get some good Arsenal related scoops” and finished the entire article off with this conclusion, “I have not listed them in order of preference but for the record, I like Charles Watts the best”
So, as you can imagine when Mr Watts writes about Arsenal I do take notice and he has given a comprehensive update on the current state of play with regards to Arsenal’s transfer business.
He remains Arsenal’s priority and they are preparing a second offer and one of Carl Jenkinson, Calum Chambers or Mohamed Elneny will be included as part of the package.
Arsenal are interested in the 22-year-old but only as an alternative to Zaha
Despite what some are claiming on social media there has been no deal concluded and talks are ongoing.
Same with Tierney, no deal has been agreed and any claims to the contrary are simply false but the Gunners remain hopeful that a deal will be done.
So, in conclusion, it is all about Zaha at the moment, he remains the priority and there are no deals agreed or medicals being prepared or any of the other nonsense that is being floated around and taken as gospel by some.
That does not mean that the likes of Tierney or Saliba will not join Arsenal, there is a good chance they will but nothing has been agreed at the time of writing.
