With the transfer window seemingly on hold for Arsenal until their Europa League final against Chelsea in Baku is concluded, rumours will continue to pop up here and there.
The latest has come completely from left field, with AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma linked with a move to North London.
According to Tuttomercatoweb the Gunners are looking to sign the Italian who’s been a regular at the club since the age of 16. He’s gone on to emerge as one of the hottest prospects in world football.
Arsenal have had issues with goalkeepers for many years, but the latest rumour does seem completely false, with 2018 summer sign Bernd Leno impressing between the posts since his arrival and Emi Martinez due to return from a successful loan spell at Reading.
Since the German goalkeeper arrived from Bayer Leverkusen, he’s looked a brilliant shot-stopper with the odd mistake coming from set pieces, but all-in-all he’s been a terrific addition to the Arsenal squad.
Links to Donnarumma therefore make little-to-no sense as the Italian would surely demand a starting place in the team and Leno doesn’t look like getting dropped any time soon. Arsenal fans quickly jumped on the rumour, and rightly haven’t believed a word of it…
Where do these rumours even come from ?

I don’t see a shred of truth in this.
