What players the media are linking Arsenal with today by Martin
You would think that we are already in the middle of the summer transfer window with the number of rumours being reported by the press, and even though it really is too early to start taking anything too seriously, it is being reported and we would be amiss to ignore the gossip flowing from the media.
These are some of the beauties I have come across today:
The player in question is Said Benrahma and my first reaction was, “who?”. I have never heard of him and “£30 Million?” are they serious? Not saying this one will or will not happen because I do not know, but on the face of it, I just can help feeling this one is nonsense.
We already covered this ongoing link to Nicholas Pepe on here and to sum it up, this is not going to happen, too expensive and plain ridiculous to think we will spend £70 Million on one single player with another £30 Million in wages, forget it.
Not sure why this link to PSGs Adrien Rabiot is being reported today by Football.London when it has been reported almost every day this week, including on the BBC gossip page yesterday but there you go. This one may have some legs in it, he will be available on a free but he does seem to be a bit volatile and carries a bit of baggage with him, but will not rule it out, he is free after all.
That is about it for today, there may be some more later on, there usually is, however, now is not the time to get excited about anything, take all that you read with a huge pinch of salt unless it comes with verifiable quotes from either the player, his representatives or the clubs involved.
