By Sir Hardly Anyone
I know how tough it is to have to plough through line after line of bland gibberish at the start of each article telling you for the 93rd time this week that Arsenal are desperate to sign players after missing out on the champions league at the end of last season.
And how annoying it is, how slow those blogs and websites can sometimes be at loading because of the hundreds of pop up adverts here there and everywhere. (And yes we have some, but we try and keep them under control so you don’t use an ad blocker. If no one clicks on our adverts we don’t have the money to pay to keep this site running).
Anyway, I thought as my good turn for the day I’d set out all of today’s stories one after the other with a minimal of introductory chit chat (apart from this bit).
Here we go…
1: Dani Ceballos
Arsenal are set to sign Dani Ceballos on loan from Real Madrid with no agreed price on a future transfer. ( Caught Offside). He will sign for us today (Tuesday) says Sport Witness.
Football London give us the headline “The shirt numbers available”. They are 3, 8, 12, 13, 19 and 22. Isn’t that exciting!!!
Ceballos jets in (according to 442). (Any moment now we will have him “seen at the airport”).
“Arsenal working on deal to sign Real Madrid’s Ceballos” (
“The move is almost complete” Sport Witness.
But it could mean that Ozil is on the way out (Just Arsenal)
Interestingly North Wales Live has “Liverpool FC set to miss out on another transfer target”. Notice the use of “Another” in that headline. They haven’t been reading the Arsenal blogs have they?
He’s flying in for his medical. (Arsenal Station)
2: Everton Soares
Edu has said that we are signing Everton Soares (the Daily Star).
Saliba is undergoing his medical today (Football Talk although they blame the Daily Mail, which I suppose is fair enough since I blame the Daily Mail for everything.)
He’s flying in for his medical. (Arsenal Station) Let’s hope his plane does not collide with that of Ceballos.
4: Kieran Tierney
He is not signing for Arsenal (Read Arsenal).
The problem is we don’t have enough money to buy him (90 minutes online)
5: “Arsenal star to leave” (Lancs Live)
Unfortunately they don’t tell us who.
6: Griezmann (Caught offside)
“Antoine Griezmann has admitted that he’s eager to play with Arsenal and France star Alexandre Lacazette amid reports the player is a £70M target for Barcelona.”
He’s not going out on loan. (Football Ghana)
Barcelona signed Malcom from Bordeaux last summer and he struggled for minutes in his first season at the Camp Nou. So he might come to Arsenal. (Sport Witness)
Pepe is or is not coming to Arsenal according to Football London. Their piece is confusing, but I think the implication is that Manchester United have offered more money than Arsenal’s entire transfer budget.
10: Ismael Bennacer
“Former Arsenal talent Ismael Bennacer has arrived at AC Milan to sign his contract with the club, as he finalises an exit from Empoli.” (Football London)
11: Keita Balde
The Daily Post have a nice ironic twist with the headline “Fiorentina have held talks with Monaco to secure a deal for Arsenal linked Keita Balde in the ongoing summer transfer window.”
12: Nicolas Tagliafico
Given that Celtic won’t play with us over Tierney, the Metro says we are returning to thoughts of Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico
“Zaha on” says the headline from A Cultured Left Foot.
Read Arsenal have a predicted line up for the game against Real Madrid
Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Chambers, Kolasinac
Aubameyang Ozil Nelson
