There is some possible big breaking news in Football Transfer Tavern as Metro suggest that Arsenal have agreed their first summer signing.
According to reports from Germany, the Gunners have sealed the transfer of prolific Nuremberg striker Josip Drmic who will join the club in the summer.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘My Sky colleague Lothar Matthäus just said on Sky: Drmic’s wife has been looking for an apartment in London. Drmic will be Arsenal-player.
‘Josip Drmic is the Swiss-striker at Nurnberg. 15 goals so far. 47 per cent of all Nurnberg goals. Matthäus: – Will be Arsenal-player’.
