    Reliable French journalists are convinced we're agreed a fee and personal terms for Yann M'Vila choosing us over Inter.

    Waiting on our BBC guy to either confirm it or shut it down as he's about as connected to Arsenal as can be.

    I think M'Vila could make us a contender in England but not buying it yet. Could just be agent talk at this point and wouldn't be surprised if it's just to put bigger clubs on notice.

    Looking for what, a LB and striker? Jordi Alba seems like he'd be a smart pickup.

    Wenger interested in Justin Hoilett...
    Wouldn't mind seeing him come on for either Walcott or the Ox. Would be the steal since he'd be leaving on a free transfer.

    Newcastle have a pre-contract done with Romain Amalfitano, from a French Ligue 2 side.

    Invited Marseilles and France U19 LB Christophe Lowinsky in for a trial

    Lots of clearout this summer for new players - Xisco, Alan Smith, Loverkrands <3, Nile Ranger, Danny Guthrie(could still be kept), Leon Best, Tamas Kadar, and Fraser Forster(to Celtic probably)

    Wenger would love a free signing but no chance he signs Hoilett, just tabloid bullshit. We have wingers galore.

    Also sounds like M'Vila is already being shot down, didn't take long. Not surprising at all, Wenger doesn't like to have quality depth and thinks Diaby will be healthy and Ramsey has super class.

    Guess Podolski is Wenger's "big" signing. Probably another decent signing, and a few random teenagers to add to his stable.

    perroh, at least get his name right. David "Junior" Hoilett. Seems like a Liverpool player if you ask me.

    Gyan is being linked with the team he's on loan with in UAE. Been hearing that for months.

    He's not British and can actually play, no way Liverpool sign him. He's also black which doesn't work for them.

    Want Hoilett to just declare for Canada already seeing as we need him. As for club level, I'd prefer him to go to Spurs if he's going to go to a 'big' club.

    As for Gyan, there's essentially no chance he comes back to Sunderland.

    Signed a new contract with Santos that runs through Brazil 2014. Not sure whether to believe it when they say he'll stay past that or if he's off to Madrid/Barca this summer.
    He's got nothing left to prove in Brazil.

    And the one bad thing about getting Dempsey would be the tremendous bandwagon that will come with it.
