Yup, you can tell the October international break is in full flow as the ridiculous transfer story speculation has returned and this time Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a move for Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey.

It writes itself and it comes from Teamtalk originally, so I doubt anyone will take it sensibly but I did notice it was gaining a fair bit of traction on the interweb, so only fair to rubbish it.

As you’d fully expect there’s not even specific justification for the claim that we are the latest club to be linked with a ‘free transfer’ for the 27-year-old Welshman and I’m assuming that’s because the writer couldn’t find a source as they came up with it in the staff canteen.

They state it as fact, link other clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan and they’re off but the main problem with this type of invention is it leads people to claim revenge for Sol Campbell and other good headlines, and social media will always see pros and cons in such a suggestion given the type of player he is – and he would be a good addition if you ignored the baggage.

And when you have the above, these days you, unfortunately, have another story that some will take as gospel because it’s in print.

  • If he’s after £200k+ a week he’s not going to get it from us, mind you I’m not sure who will be prepared to pay him that kind of money. In any case I’m not sure where he’d fit in our set up, a variation on the Dembele position ? The funny thing is I’d actually be more interested in signing another soon to be out of contract Arsenal player – Danny Welbeck. Although it would obviously go down like a lead balloon with a lot of our fans to me he looks a better bet as a back up centre forward than anyone else we’ve been linked with.
