Influential football agent Muzzi Ozcan has dropped an absolute bombshell on Twitter, with the announcement that we are set to complete the “transfer of the season” in the coming days.
Ozcan is fairly reliable, and has often broken transfer news before it has been announced elsewhere. He was recently among those touting Toby Alderweireld’s transfer to Tottenham, with the Belgian completing his switch to our North London rivals this Wednesday (via the BBC).
I expect Toby Alderweireld to sign for Tottenham instead of Southampton . Southampton where the first ones to be in discussions , let see!!

There has been no suggestion of who the player might be, but it is still extremely exciting news. We have been linked with a number of top players recently – such as Karim Benzema (via the Metro) and Mario Gotze (via The Telegraph) – but knowing Arsene Wenger it could be anyone.
Arsenal will be making the transfer of the season ! The deal isn’t to far from being complete ! Will update in the coming days

We have been freed from our financial restraints in recent seasons, with the signings of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil showing real intent. Hopefully this new potential signing is of the same calibre as our previous marquee signings.
