Arsenal’s transfer window got off to a good start, with them securing the signings of wanted man Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer, and long term target Alexandre Lacazette for a club record fee. However, everything went downhill from there.
Oh Arsenal fans, it looks like your week is just about to get worse.
As the summer transfer window enters its final week, we look at the rumoured ins and outs from the Premier League as teams try to get the last few deals over the line. Here are the biggest rumours from the past seven days.
Last week, there was news about how Premier League clubs’ shareholders had agreed to convene on September 9th to discuss the possibility about changing the transfer window’s closing date. Presently, the window closes on August 31st, which is on an average, 20 days after the Premier League season starts.
Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly signed centre-back Davinson Sánchez from Ajax, who helped the team from the Netherlands reach second place in the Eredivisie last season, attracting attention from top European clubs such as Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
The Premier League is now very much underway as Manchester United have taken an early lead at the top of the table. Obviously, the table at this moment means absolutely nothing, but something that does, is transfers.
“For many years now the one position England have not struggled with is world-class midfield players – Scholes, and then more recently Lampard and Gerrard and now I see Wilshere as the future of English football, that is why it is so important they keep him fit.”. These words were not uttered by a deluded Arsenal fan but by the legendary midfield maestro that is Xavi.
Everton have agreed a £45 million deal with Swansea City to sign Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson.
