Arsenal fans, we’d like to extend a very warm welcome to an article that is going to blow your mind.
Okay, in truth it probably will do nothing of the sort, but what’s a transfer roundup without a little embellishment? It’s not a transfer roundup, that’s what, so if you notice a trend developing over the course of the piece don’t be alarmed.
Anyhow, we’re done discussing the nature of the transfer beast, so if you’ve got this far then well done. Below you’ll find the biggest breaking Arsenal-related stories. Go forth and become insightful, young padawans.

All eyes are on David Ospina at Arsenal following the arrival of Petr Cech from Chelsea, and the Colombia international has now admitted that he could leave for Premier League club Everton if offered the chance.
When asked about his future Ospina, who now has both Cech and Wojciech Szczesny for company at the Emirates Stadium, stated that he did want to stay in north London and prove his worth, but also hinted that a switch to Goodison Park wasn’t beyond the realms of possibility.
This comes on the back of rumours suggesting Everton have submitted an offer for Ospina, one that the player himself described as a ‘great possibility’.
"I want to keep proving my worth at Arsenal and showing everything David Ospina can give to them. I want to stay. Today I am Arsenal goalkeeper. I have four years remaining on my contract. Let's see what happens," the 'keeper told AS.
"There are some possibilities (to move away) but my mind is at Arsenal. I want to stay. I am very happy in London and my family too so I hope that at least I can respect the the remainder of my contract."
Watch this space if you’re keen to witness the culmination of the saga firsthand, with the end probably in sight.
Who are kidding? Don’t be surprised to see Ospina still umming and aahing over his future as we enter the last few days of the window.
Ozil bid possible?
In other news Serie A champions Juventus could make a big offer to sign Mesut Ozil either this summer or next. Italian newspaper TuttoSport has broken the story, suggesting that a rocky relationship with Wenger could convince the German to leave.
Confusing stuff to say the least, but since this is the first rumour of the sort we’ll give it a chance to either grow legs or be ground into tiny transfer dust. The latter is far more likely, we’ll admit, but stranger things have happened in the past.
Last but not least we’ve decided to include a story from yesterday that’s still relatively fresh. It concerns a Bayern Munich chief, Pep Guardiola and Theo Walcott.
How do these three stooges fit into any narrative you ask? Well, we’ll tell you. The story goes that Bayern held a meeting recently to discuss possible future replacements for Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben. One Allianz Arena chief suggested Walcott, but was supposedly laughed off by Guardiola.
If we’re being honest he probably didn’t laugh, but that’s how we like to imagine it in our heads. In fact, we imagine it being like the video above.
