With no actual football to talk about, real news is still very hard to come by out there.

Over the course of the past 24 hours, we have, however, seen some developments.

Arsenal have finally come to an agreement with Bolton over central defender, Rob Holding, who has also passed a medical. All you need to know about him can be found here.

Per Mertesacker and Francis Coquelin have both been singing the praises of one new boy already signed, Granit Xhaka. It’s cute how excited the BFG is.

Rangers manager, Mark Warburton, has said that Scottish players should use Gedion Zelalem as an example, Liverpool are suffering some injury concerns ahead of the season opener on 14th August, while Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have been left a little red-faced.

As Arsenal look for a new striker, Park Chu-Young has finally found his form, years after he lost it upon signing for the club. Elsewhere, Remi Garde revealed Arsenal wanted him as sporting director and backed Wenger over dumping Thierry Henry.

Wellington has gone and Arsenal almost broke even on his transfer.

And, finally, in a quick gossip roundup Kostas Manolas may or may not be happy, Olivier Giroud’s agent has made some reporters look rather silly, Hector Bellerin’s agent is not helping calm any nerves with his comments about Manchester City’s interest, and Arsenal have apparently got at least another two central defenders on their shopping list.
