This story has passed the levels of ridiculousness now but I suppose it was only a matter of time before another member of the press came out to match Arsenal’s yin with a Liverpool yang. So. Guardian journalist Sachin Nakrini has claimed that fellow Guardian journalist Andy Hunter will have information shortly about Sahin and a medical at Liverpool to take place tomorrow.
The thing about this is that Andy Hunter, based in Liverpool, is one of the finer journalist’s in the game and his word perhaps means more than all the other tabloid stories we’ve had altogether.
Seriously. This story is worse than the Arshavin transfer. I’d like to say that no-one has a clue what is going on, I know I certainly don’t, but I’m concerned seeing Hunter connected with this and this could just be an end to the Sahin saga, but not the end Arsenal wanted.
But, as I said when I brought you the news that Bild was reporting Sahin to Arsenal was done, don’t bet your house on anything just yet.
