The latest news of discord at Arsenal has knock-on effects for us.

Arsene Wenger is facing the prospect of losing both of last season’s first choice centre backs, William Gallas (not exactly the most popular man at Arsenal) and now Kolo Toure has reportedly handed in a transfer request after having a bust-up with Gallas.

You would think that might shift Wenger’s attentions to his top transfer targets. The Sun, however, reckons that he would fail in a bid for Brede Hangeland. That organ, renowned for its accurate predictions of course, claims that ‘Fulham have said they are not interested in selling Brede Hangeland’ and the Telegraph thinks Wenger will switch his interest to one of his former players, Matthew Upson, at West Ham.
