Transfer Balls: Ezequiel Garay and the Arsenal link.

The Metro’s Jamie Anderson (is he real or an SEO-bot?) has news that Garay is on his way to Arsenal. Maybe:

He writes:

Manchester United and Chelsea are apparently keen, but after reports that Arsenal are interested, the Daily Star says the Gunners have now made a £13m opening offer.

Sanderson’s link is to the Daily Star:

Alex Harris writes:

The Daily Express claim Arsenal have made a £13m offer for Zenit St Petersburg central defender Ezequiel Garay.

The Express is the Star’s sister newspaper.

In the Express we hear from Ben Jefferson, who, like Sanderson, might not be real:

He too has a source:

Arsenal want the player to boost their back line ahead of the new season, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

No link in the Express. But the story on the Italian site runs:

The Italians read about the Garay move in the Daily Telegraph.

Back to the UK, then, to learn:

Finally we get the source of the story:

Arsenal are interested in signing highly-rated Zenit St Petersburg defender Ezequiel Garay, according to reports.

Which reports we are not told. No links. No sources cited. No quotes. No facts. It’s a human centipede of football reporting.
