Well, we all know Arsene Wenger won't contemplate the idea of selling our inspirational captain, but the tabloids are it again. The Daily Mail believes Arsene might consider Everton's Mikel Arteta in the eventuality that Cesc joins Catalan giant and boyhood club Barcelona.
No action to look up to, no players to criticise, expect a lot of transfer gist, as we enter the embryonic stage of the transfer market.
First, they were claims Barcelona were preparing an audacious €40 + player (Yaya Toure) offer, but we all know Arsene will hear none of that.
The 28-year-old Everton midfielder is contracted to 2012, so the possibility of a bid is not only incredulous, but fallacious to think Everton will cash in on their influential playmaker.
Wenger has also being linked with Real Zaragoza's young midfielder Ander Herrarra, but like the report rightly said we need experience not youth.
