Metro seem to have some seriously interesting news for Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that Real Madrid are after one of their defenders.
The player in question is Laurent Koscielny, who has been identified as a possible replacement for Sergio Ramos should the defender leave for United – something that is looking increasingly likely as the summer transfer window rolls on.
As one of our punters notes, that would be far from ideal for Arsene Wenger, who is trying to have a good transfer window for the first time in a long while.
We think that Real Madrid are very hard to turn down – but if Arsenal really do show they have serious title intentions next term, they could well keep hold of their best players.
Arsenal fans. Is this a deal you think might come off or will the club do everything they can to keep the defender? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
