Episode 641 - Odegaard back, Arteta backed

On this week's show I'm joined by Simon Collings of the Evening Standard to talk about the impending signings of Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale; how the former will provide creative, attacking threat that we need, and what the implications of signing a £24m 'back-up' might be for current number 1 Bernd Leno. We also chat about the need to sell players, how much compromise will be required in the final weeks of the transfer window, and about how the backing Mikel Arteta has been given this season has to start producing results – even if the month of August looks pretty difficult.

Then I talk to Philippe Auclair about an article he spent 18 months investigating about the links between the Premier League and potential money laundering via the less than transparent world of online gambling.
