Summer Transfer Thread #1

I thought I'd open a thread for transfer rumors and news that we can keep going throughout the summer, and if it gets too big, we'll just add another one. This applies to transfer for everyone, not just Arsenal. I've got to fill in some space though to post, so I'll just throw out some notes...

- Eden Hazard has passed a medical and terms are officially agreed upon, so on the first day of the European transfer window, we'll see Hazard go immediately to Chelsea, and Podolski will come over to Arsenal. Not sure if Podolski passed a medical yet, but I'm assuming there's going to be no issues there.

- We've all heard about this monster deal for Hulk going to Chelsea as well, which hasn't necessarly been agreed on but it looks more and more likely every day, but then again everything could just go haywire (which is what I'm kind of hoping for). Given Torres' prior role at Chelsea, which has been pretty limited compared to Liverpool, what do you think is going to happen to him? I've heard some things about Torres potentially going back to Atletico, so who knows...

- RVP has come out and said that talks with him and Arsenal will be extremely confidential and details will not be released to the public. We already have a history of keeping most of our deals under wraps, so it's not that surprising, but until I hear something from Arsenal or some of the reliable bloggers out there (Arseblog, Young Guns, us), I'm probably just going to brush it aside.

- And M'Vila to Arsenal is still out there, but whether or not it's gaining any ground is uncertain, again with Arsenal tending to keep most of their business under wraps. The only thing I've seen recently is M'Vila may just tag along for the Euros depending on his health.

Okay, commence discussion!
