There are just over 10 weeks to go before the winter transfer window opens up and already it is becoming evident which transfers are likely to dominate Arsenal transfer news.
The most obvious one involves the Gunners player leaving the Emirates. Mesut Ozil will be widely considered despite his insistence that he will stay and fight for his place.
It is hard to see German international all of a sudden becoming an automatic starter under Unai Emery’s, and that alone will lead to widespread speculation over the Ozil’s future. It directly will not go away.
In terms of players arriving it already sees the name Dayot Upamecano noticed quite a few times. It seems Arsenal remain interested in joining the RB Leipzig defender.
Just today the Daily Star is running the headline the Gunners handed Dayot Upamecano transfer boost as German club decide to cash in.
The fact that Unai Emery already has a full complement of defenders will be ignored. The media will also overlook the fact that the North London club also have a new defender joining next summer.
Have no difficulty that other names will surface in the lead-up to the transfer window opening up. But Dayot Upamecano and Mesut Ozil will be considered right up until the last second on deadline day.
