Here in the Football Transfer Tavern we’re well commended at reading between the lines to cut the tosh from the reality in the latest rumours that arrived every morning.
All too often we see transfer speculation that has been purely created by those newspaper and website editors who are desperate to keep punters interested during the long months until the summer.
After the closure of the window last month we’ve already started to see quite a few of these reports in the tavern and we can only imagine the difficulties editors face in filing these empty spaces.
Arsenal supporters are accustomed with all sorts of these rumours, especially given the current transfer situation at the Emirates Stadium.
In January, most Gunners in the bar wanted the club to significantly strengthen to help move Arsene Wenger’s side towards the title. But that proved not to be the case and instead funds remain available for further signings in the summer.
This has left the Gunners open to attack for those wild and unbelievable stories and to backup the point that it is mostly a lot of old nonsense we have compiled five recent rumours involving Arsenal that have graced the backpages.
