There is drama here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Footy Latest claim that Arsenal could be set to swoop for Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel.
The centre back’s future has been under some speculation recently and it seems that Brendan Rodgers could be willing to offload the player this summer – especially after signing Manchester City’s Kolo Toure and still being in the hunt for another defender to boot.
What has got our punters surprised is the fact that Arsenal could be set to move for the player and add him to their ranks – something that is not going to go down well with Liverpool fans. Wenger of course is in the hunt for another centre back and after it was claimed that the club could well be set to miss out on Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic because they were unwilling to shell out the £25 million the Viola are asking for, Arsenal fans will welcome the news of some serious intent in the transfer market.
Add to this the fact that Cesc Fabregas could well be set for a return to the Premier League even perhaps linking up with Robin van Persie – something that would go down like a lead balloon in North London, some good news would be welcome for Arsenal fans.
