It’s been disappointing seasons for both Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League this season and both sets of fans here in the Transfer Tavern are unhappy with what has been poor campaigns for both sides.
Both Arsenal and City suffered poor results this weekend too, with the Gunners losing 2-0 at bitter rivals Tottenham whilst City could only grab a draw against relegation-threatened Middlesbrough.
And the reubuilding process needs to start sooner rather than later and according to the Daily Star, both teams are leading the race to sign £50million-rated Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk.
The Saints captain has been long since linked with a move away from the club this summer and there’s plenty of supporters for both City and Arsenal hoping that he’ll pitch up at either the Emirates or the Etihad next season.
Both City and Arsenal have looked weak in recent weeks and with van Dijk having such a strong campaign for the Saints, he’d make an excellent addition to either squad.
City and Arsenal fans- what would van Dijk bring to your side? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
