The Arsenal rumour mill seems to be building up to the upcoming transfer window, and as Sol Campbell has openly announced that Arsene Wenger needs to bring in top players to convince Robin Van Persie to stay at the Emirates.
The ongoing Eden Hazard affair continues and it has been revealed that the Man United boss Alex Ferguson has taken a personal interest in the young Belgian. The likelihood of Arsenal getting Hazard seems to be receding into the distance.
Another interesting Arsenal rumour is that Wenger is chasing the Valencia defender Adil Rami. The 26 year-old is certainly class, but I personally think that Jan Vertonghen is the most likely defender to come to the Gunners.
And that is what Caughtoffside say as well. They reckon that Wenger will be given a load of dosh this summer and will be aiming for Vertonghen and his young team-mate Christian Eriksen. That sounds plausible as Eriksen is a talented (and cheaper!) alternative to Hazard.
Lastly, Arsenal has been variously linked with the prolific Trabzonspor forward Burak Yilmaz, but the Metro now says that Fulham’s Martin Jol is in the driving seat to get Yilmaz for just £6 million. No matter your opinion of the Turkish SuperLiga, that price for a hitman with 32 goals in 30 games this season must surely be worth a second look?
How many of today’s Arsenal rumours would you like to be true?
