Football transfer rumours: Celtic’s Moussa Dembélé on his way to Arsenal?

Today’s fluff put the boom boom into my heart

It’s mid-July and we still don’t know if Alexis Sánchez will be staying at Arsenal or leaving. The player may have announced yesterday that he “wants to play in the Champions League” and had “made my decision” but the Sun today say the Chilean “is understood to love the London life” and might even sign a £275,000-a-week contract extension. However thanks to today’s Express we do know who would replace the Chilean if he does end up going: it’s Celtic’s Moussa Dembélé! “Despite insisting Sánchez would be forced to honour the last year of his contract,” they write, “Wenger is well aware losing an asset worth at least £50m would be economic madness.” Madness! The Gunners are about to receive €10m for Wojcech Szczesny, whose move to Juventus is going to be confirmed any day now, but that cash might not be in their bank account for long, what with them “considering making a £45m bid”, according to the Mirror, for the Southampton gossip-magnet Virgil van Dijk.
