It's usually at the end of the season that the crazy transfer rumours start, but with the departure of Matty Flamini and the possibility of Hleb joining him looming over our heads, the rumour mill is working over time.
The transfer speculation at this time of year usually consists of Arsenal's best player being linked with Barcelona and/or Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter and Juventus, and whilst this hasn't changed much in 2008, rumours of players coming in have reached fever pitch.
Ben Arfa Seems to be the most popular transfer story, with some sources stating the deal has already been done. With Arsene Wenger already stating that not only is does he have his sights on a creative player but has his targets in mind and is looking to seal the deals before the end of May, this one could be a real possibility.
Next on the list is Yaya Toure. Many football transfer rumours sites and blogs have picked up on this easy story. Barcelona have once again failed in the league and Europe, their manager looks set to be on his way out as do half the players, Arsenal have just lost their powerhouse midfielder, and Yaya's brother is already a Gooner ..... outcome? You guessed it.
Portsmouth's Niko Kranjcar is another player apparently in Arsene Wenger's crosshairs after the player's dad said that Le Boss tracked him when he was playing in Croatia and claims he would be the perfect foil for the departing Hleb.
Hamburg defender Vincent Kompany is a player has only recently reappeared at the rumour mill after being an apparent target a season or two ago. He would certainly go some way to suring up the defence.
Papers are also printing stories that the Gunners are preparing a £12 Million bid for Marseille's 20 year old whizzkid, Samir Nasri
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry was linked with a sensational move back to North London (And even more laughably, Spurs) but the great man quickly put paid to that one saying he's staying at Barca.
With all these stories circulating, which of the rumours do you wish would come true? Are there any not on the list you'd like to see coming in?
Let silly season commence!!!
