Metro have Arsenal fans looking up with huge smiles on their faces as they seem to think Arsenal have been cleared to sign Joao Moutinho from Monaco.
Now as one of our punters notes over a couple of beers over by the bar, we have seen this rumour time and time again and haven’t ever really put much weight behind it, but after Monaco told the creative star he was free to leave, we think this could be the summer – if there is ever going to be one – that Moutinho comes to England.
Quite if Arsenal need another creative midfielder, especially one on £110,000 per week, remains to be seen and we think there are far more suitable players out there who would add some solidity to the middle of Arsenal’s side.
Arsenal fans. Is this one rumour that you’re always going to see but that will never actually come off? Let us know your thoughts below.
