Roll up, roll up, silly season is well and truly back here in the Football Transfer Tavern with the deals and speculation really starting to hot up as we enter mid-June.
Thus far this summer, the futures of Memphis Depay, James Milner, Danny Ings and Sami Khedira have all been wrapped up and the punters can’t wait to see who’ll be next with the daily papers going into overdrive with transfer speculation.
What the summer transfer window also brings with it alongside agitated Arsenal fans, countless yellow bar gasps on Sky Sports News and cameo appearances from Harry Redknapp (even though he’s not a manager anymore!) is ridiculous rumours.
We’re talking about rumours so crazy that you can imagine the mainstream press throwing a load of players names into one hat and teams into another and then drawing from either!
One punter pipes up and claims ‘isn’t this what they do already?’ and this jibe is met by a round of applause by the rest of the drinkers by the bar.
Despite this scepticism, silly season is here until August at least and keeping along this theme, we have identified five of the most ridiculous Arsenal transfer rumours we’ve heard so far.
