Have Arsenal Signed Ben Arfa?

Morning all. Quick update right now because I've got to go coach my team this morning but there may be big news. Several sources have claimed that we have made a deal with Lyon for Hatem Ben Arfa. Ok, the sources are Tribal Football and The Sun, which aren't the most credible, but Goodplaya seems to think it may be true. The fee is supposedly 16 million pounds, which is a lot but maybe it would show that Wenger is ready to spend some money this transfer season. None of the major and actually credible newspapers have reported this yet and neither has but be on the lookout because it could happen today. I'll get back to you with a full story after my game.

Update: This deal is not done. Young Guns has told us that he has not been signed and probably will not be signed due to Wenger's poor relationship with Lyon. More to come later.

16 million pounds should help smooth over and differences between Arsene and Lyon! Any idea what problems between Arsene and Lyon stem from?

Anyway...I'm excited to see who we bring in...Ben Arfa would be a great start!
