Our Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting excited over Andrea Belotti after Torino claimed they had rejected a bid for the player, from the Gunners, to Sky Italia (via Sky Sports.)

The Gunners have not had the best time of it in recent weeks and have seen themselves fall out of the top four in the Premier League.

That’s certainly not where they wanted to be at the turn of this season and many felt they’d be serious challengers for the league this year.

Of course, it’s too early to rule them out just yet but many feel that new players coming in during this window could define just where their season ends up going towards May.

The potential signing of Belotti would surely be a welcome one, then, and our landlord reckons these three reasons perfectly demonstrate just why the Gunners have to get him in before the end of this month…
