Rumours circulate this afternoon that Arsenal may indulge in a little January shopping after all.
Although nothing is confirmed, speculation (predominantly on Twitter) sees the Gunners linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Thomas Eisfeld (pictured on the left).
Who he? Well quite. He doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page yet, but according to other sources, including the Guardian’s German football specialist Raphael Honistein, he’s a 19-year-old, right-footed, offensive midfielder who has already spent a year out of the game having ruptured his cruciate ligament in late 2009.
Could he sound more like an Arsene Wenger buy?
It appears the youngster, who has yet to make a real impact on the Bundesliga, is at London Colney undertaking a medical and could put pen-to-paper on a deal before tomorrow’s midnight transfer deadline.
Arseblog News at this point urges a sane response from supporters. If possible keep Amaury Bischoff / Lionel Messi premonitions to a minimum and don’t check his stats on Football Manager – it’s a fucking computer game, not real life. Got it? Good.
