Excitement is growing over the possibility of Yannick Carrasco signing for Arsenal, last week it was Dennis Praet and Joachim Andersen that got the pulses running and it will probably be yet another player next week that will get us all hot under the collar.
That is one of the biggest problems with the transfer window, you are led up a garden path only to find the roses have wilted at the end, but on that walk, you had visions of a vase full of beautiful glorious roses only to be greatly disappointed at the end.
The golden rule is that until a player is actually unveiled it pays to show patience and contain your emotions as best as possible.
We publish transfer gossip on here, we get excited just as much as anyone else, we also get despondent at some of the players being linked with us and we struggle just as much as anyone else to keep some perspective and so every now and then we will write an article like this to keep ourselves in check, it is therapeutic.
It is a period of competitive internationals right now and you can take it to the bank that our scouts have been all over the place monitoring players and so you can expect a fresh deluge of new names over the next week or so and so it will not be easy to stay grounded.
Now is the time to stay calm and not get too over excited because it is going to get worse before it gets better.
