Sky Sports‘ Jim White never disappoints here in the Football Transfer Tavern and after claiming that there has been no contact between Manchester United and Arsenal for Danny Welbeck, they have stunned us.
As one of our punters notes, rumours of a move for the Manchester United forward to North London had certainly entertained us for the majority of the afternoon.
However, Arsenal have come out and flatly denied that they have run a medical on Welbeck or indeed agreed any kind of deal, loan or otherwise, with United.
We certainly think that the Gunners are desperate for a forward and it seems that the options are running out thick and fast as the day draws to a close.
If Welbeck is not on their radar, we know another side in North London who could well be keen on landing the forward.
The pints are flowing thick and fast in the tavern and the majority of our Gunners fans are doubtful that anyone at all will be coming in as Arsene Wenger messes up once again.
Arsenal fans. Is the denial concerning Welbeck a sign that you will NOT be signing a forward this summer? What next for Wenger? Let us know your thoughts below.
