With the close of the transfer window only a matter of days away the press are going into over drive, so I decided to resurrect ‘The Rumour Mill’ for the home straight.

The Mirror suggest that Mr Wenger will move for the Saints 17 year old left back sensation Gareth Bale and as an insurance to win the players signature Arsenal will offer the defender back to Southampton on a years loan.

Arsenal youngster Anthony Stokes is apparently lining up a move to Falkirk according to Sky Sports News.

Rumour regulars, The Sun have this morning reported a 17 million quid move for Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez.

Kilmarnock youngster Steven Naismith will have a two day trial at the Gunners, however Killie boss Jim Jefferies doesn’t think much will come of it.

Myles Palmer of Arsenal News Review hears that Arsenal have revived their interest in record breaking keeper Gigi Buffon after his Gooner friend told him so!!!!

The Guardian believes Arsenal and Man Utd head the chase for West Ham’s under 21’s star Nigel Reo-Coker

That’s it from today’s Rumour Mill, more tomorrow as the tension mounts.

Remember that the names of the players highlighted are links to the stories.
