Monday morning, transfer rumours aplenty ?.. I wonder how many of them are true?

First of all the big “story” of the day is that of Arsene Wenger lining up an £18 Million bid for “highly rated” (anyone else getting tired of hearing that phrase?) Spanish under 21`s player Juan Mata

Of course all the articles suggest that Mata, a skilful play-maker is probably being lined up to replace either Cesc or Nasri. Has anyone ever thought we just need more top class players in order to challenge for honours and to convince our current top class players to stay?

Speaking of keeping our best players, it`s being reported that Barcelona are “upping” their bid for Inter Milan are having a crack at signing Velez Sarsfield`s Ricardo Alvarez, rendering the claims of Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini (reported in This Article) that Alvarez was “already a Gunner” as absolute bollocks.

Reports claim that Manchester United are set to test our resolve and are lining up a tasty bid for Samir Nasri. All I have to say on that is if Ferguson expects Wenger to sell one of our best players to him then he`s going to have to pay waaaaaaaay over the odds for the Frenchman.
