Arsenal have been linked with an enormous amount of players this summer.
As is always the case during the summer months, the back pages are filled with rumours linking players with moves to a variety of clubs.
Ironically, despite Arsene Wenger’s traditional reluctance to involve himself in the transfer market to the same degree as his rival managers, Arsenal often dominate the back pages.
Indeed, by our count, Arsenal have been linked with a massive 110 players this summer. This is of course ludicrous, and has often seen the Gunners linked with more two players on particular days.
Yet, supporters love to engage with transfer speculation, and it indicates how much confidence supporters hold in their club.
For example, Arsenal fans were generally positive when their club seemed to be on the verge of signing Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City, but that quickly subsided when both deals fell through before peaking again when news of the Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi transfers emerged.
In any event, here is the list of the 110 linked with Arsenal during this summer’s transfer window. The list includes a range of players, from youngster who may have caught Arsene Wenger’s eye, to established stars like Gonzalo Higuaín.
