Metro have stunned Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Gunners are set to land Morgan Schneiderlin with a deal already agreed for the £25 million man.
The Southampton midfielder has previously made no secret of his desire to leave St Mary’s for a Champions League qualified club and it seems that for once, Arsenal have managed to land a highly sought-after player ahead of their rivals.
This is according to the Secret Footballer (@TSF) who has broken several transfer stories on Twitter before.
However as our landlord notes, before we get too excited, caution certainly has to be taken with stories like this rumoured all the time.
Some of our punters over by the pool table admit that should this be true, it would be a huge coup for the Gunners although we think it would probably put an end to their pursuit of Sporting Lisbon’s William Carvalho.
Arsenal fans. If it was a straight choice between Schneiderlin and Carvalho this January transfer window, who would you choose? Let us know your thoughts below.
