As Arsenal fans, we tend to look for any minute clue regarding transfer news. Our official club photographer dropped a huge one on Saturday night, before being forced to publicly deny that he has any inside information.
We have been heavily linked with a move for Petr Cech recently (via the Express), and it now looks only a matter of time before the move materialises.
Stuart MacFarlane is active on social media and attempted to cunningly follow Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech as well as his PR company. Stuart can’t realistically claim that he hasn’t got any information when he’s usually tasked to undertake a photo shoot for new signings, which has previously taken place before any official announcement.
Our club photographer tried to cover his tracks after his late night antics caught the attention of Arsenal fans on Twitter and proceeded to follow a number of random accounts in quick succession.
Funny people think I know what’s going on with transfers, just a photographer. I’m an Arsenal fan like you and follow all the media rubbish

Analysing Twitter for transfer hints may seem desperate, but the agent of Alexis Sanchez changed that perception last summer after following a number of our first team stars days before the deal was announced (via the Metro).
Hopefully, we can rubber stamp this Cech deal rather swiftly and focus on addressing other areas of our squad as we prepare to launch a serious title challenge.
