Over the last few weeks there have been extremely spurious links to Torino striker Andrea Belotti.
Despite what some of the worst red-tops and click-bait merchants would have you believe, there was nothing to the story at all – and especially not a £65m bid from a club that is currently awash with attacking talent.
Asked about it today at his pre-Swansea press conference, Arsene Wenger showed he’s keeping track of current affairs by dismissing it completely.
“That is what you call these days ‘fake news’,” quipped the boss.
“We have Welbeck coming back, we have Giroud, we have Sanchez, we have Walcott, we have Perez who is doing very well now.
“We have Chuba Akpom, we have Sanogo, we have many strikers!”
We’re putting the fact he’s included Sanogo in there, who hasn’t been seen in an Arsenal shirt for a very long time now, as a cherry on the icing of the ‘this is completely made-up’ cake.
