Transfer balls: Arsenal want Watford captain Troy Deeney for £20m
“EXCLUSIVE,” says the Daily Star. “Arsenal eye shock move for Watford captain Troy Deeney.”
They are? And, yeah, it would be a shock. It would also be insane.
We’re not not told how this rumour came about. But we do learn that “Watford are extremely unlikely to sell their skipper”.
But Wenger is in the market for a hitman, knowing adding a ready-made striker to his squad could be key to the club winning their first title for 12 years.
The Express says Arsenal are readying a £20m bid for Deeney.
This is, of course, complete tosh. but it doesn’t stop the Telegraph adding Deeny to the journalism-by-numbers list “10 strikers Arsene Wenger could sign.”
Or could not.
