Ever since the news emerged that Arsene Wenger was going to have a £70 million transfer budget for the summer transfer window, the gossip columns have been dominated by various stories detailing which superstars will be walking through the Emirates doors.
Chief executive Ivan Gazidis made the claim at the end of the season, that the Gunners were now capable of challenging any team for the top players available in the transfer market, after seemingly years of disappointing signings and the hurt of being described as a ‘selling club.’
The news was music to Arsenal supporters ears, although the transfer window so far has proved a bit of a let down. 18-year-old French forward Yaya Sanogo has been the only incoming at the Emirates so far, with the main cause of celebration with regards to transfer activity coming with the news Andre Santos had seen his contract cancelled by the club.
Time is still on Arsenal’s side however. With four weeks until the start of the Premier League season, you can be sure there will be some new faces at the club shortly. However, it is hard to tell exactly who, with some transfer links so far proving nothing short of ridiculous.
Here we have identfied the 5 most absurd Arenal transfer links this summer.
