Decent stats. In fact Tosun has been in great form for the Black Eagles and scored 24 goals over the 2016-17 season, playing a major role in his side winning the league title for the second season running.

We won’t get Mbappe nor Lacazette… Arsenal is after Cenk Tosun.
It’s just my personal opinion.

The rumour could actually have been started by @Ata_Memz who carried out a social experiment a fortnight ago to see if you could fabricate a transfer rumour and get the mainstream media to report the story.
Arsenal fans following the development of the rumour found the report pretty hilarious.
Just shows how easy it can be

As the saying goes, any publicity is good publicity.
The poor lads value has gone up and the club he wanted to go to can’t afford him now! ??
