by CARL ELDRIDGE Will Mark Schwarzer eventually sign for the Arsenal today from Fulham as the deadline door shuts and a summer of transfer speculation comes to a close?
Only for the speculation to begin again instantly ahead of the January window, of course. Indeed, does AW have any secret deals up his sleeve that will come to fruition?
Also, less importantly, is Harry Redknapp a wheeler-dealer or not? Seems as if the old wheeler-dealer might be wheeling and dealing again today as he looks to bring in Adebayor from Manchester City. That’s according to this morning’s Mirror anyway. Surely not! Anyhow, just make sure you don’t upset the wheeler-dealer by lazily labelling him a, er, wheeler-dealer. Do you think the miserable defeat to lowly Wigan got up the wheeler-dealer’s crumpled nose? Del Boy he ain’t, got it!
Meanwhile, RVP’s ankle injury looks set to keep him out for up to a month which could be worse when you take into consideration the international break and the home games against Bolton and Braga, which we would like to think are ‘winnable’ without the Dutchie.
Elsewhere, it looks like Armand Traore will seal a deal to Juve today and our former central defender Mik Silvestre has signed for Werder Bremen. I know he was never fully taken into our hearts but he was always professional and seemed to do his best and I for one would like to wish him luck.
So, keep an eye on arsenalinsider.com throughout the day and we’ll bring you transfer news if indeed there is any.
