    Re: 2012 Rumor Mill/Transfers

    Daily Mail reported that Wolfsburg and Barca were interested in Denilson.

    Sunday Mirror says contract talks with Nasri have stalled and he may look for a move to Inter, who are also interested in Fabregas.

    Mail on Sunday says Per Mertesacker from Werder Bremen is our top target for the summer.

    News of the World says Carl Jenkinson from Charlton will be coming to the Arsenal this summer. They also claim we're looking at Stewart Downing from Aston Villa.

    Re: 2012 Rumor Mill/Transfers

    Jenkinson looks quite likely to happen. Free transfer, young and a semi-trustworthy source.

    Oh, updated.

    Re: 2012 Rumor Mill/Transfers

    The Sun thinks we're interested in Diego Milito for 5m.

    Daily Telegraph thinks Gary Cahill is our answer in the central defence. His expected price is in the 15m range.

    Interested in Lille winger Gervinho

    Denilson has asked to be moved to Italy or Spain. No word whether his contract is up or if he will be sold.

    Re: 2012 Rumor Mill/Transfers

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is preparing a bid for Stuttgart centre-back Serdar Tasci and Bayer Leverkusen goakeeper Rene Adler, 25, and hopes that an outlay of £22m will seal deals for the German duo.

    Arsenal are looking at Montpellier's 29-year-old Bosnia international centre-back Emir Spahic. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is thought to prefer Germany star Per Mertesacker but is looking at alternatives if a deal cannot be struck with Werder Bremen to sign the 25-year-old.

    (we'd have to splash out 25-30m to buy Mertesacker so...)

    Adebayor is on his way to Italy. Says something that Balotelli is preferred. Adebayor will be playing for Staines Town in no time.

    Speaking of out of favour, "worst career move possible" Hleb is probably going to sign with Sp*urs or some other middling Premership team now that Birming**** City are relegated (joy).

    We're still interested in Mark Schwartzer because we're pathetic.
