Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers for the summer. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool
He may have played a key role in Arsenal's FA Cup final win over Chelsea, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could soon leave...
While hardly an against-all-odds miracle, Arsenal pleasantly surprised their fans by defying their defensive woes to beat Chelsea 2-1 with a spirited, gutsy performance in the FA Cup final.
Not many were predicting a win for the Gunners before the match, but after lifting the trophy Mesut Ozil was happy to look back and chuckle to himself over the outcomes forecast by some journalists in the London Evening Standard prior to kick-off.
LONDON -- For all the tension and fear during a week scarred by the death and devastation of the Manchester bomb attack, Saturday was a day when the UK moved forward.
A series of arrests and a lowering of the national terror threat level from critical to severe was the hard evidence of that and the FA Cup final at Wembley provided a reflection of a vigilant but calm public mood as it passed peacefully, without incident.
With regard to this week's atrocity at least, the response was respectful...
LONDON -- There is an Arsenal supporters' banner that reads, simply, "Arsene Knows." It has been around for a while and is supposed to relate to his wisdom in all football-related matters, but with uncertainty once again swirling around his future following the FA Cup final victory over Chelsea, a win that secured his seventh FA Cup, "Arsene Knows" seems wholly appropriate as he seems to be quite happily keeping everyone guessing for just a while longer.
Arsene Wenger and Arsenal somehow managed to end a tumultuous season on a high by defeating Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final.
Alexis Sanchez gave them the lead in somewhat fortuitous circumstances, before 10-men Chelsea equalised through Diego Costa. However, shortly afterwards Aaron Ramsey burst into the box and nodded past Thibaut Courtois to give the Gunners the upset win.
LONDON -- Three thoughts from Wembley after Aaron Ramsey's goal secured a 2-1 win for Arsenal and FA Cup glory over 10-man Chelsea:
1. Arsenal pull it off, win FA Cup
You have to hand it to Arsenal. No other team has beaten Chelsea twice this season, but Arsene Wenger's players pulled it off in style by making Antonio Conte pay for his selection mistake with a 2-1 victory in the FA Cup Final.
