Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern had to take a second look at the tabloids today, not quite believing what they were reading as they tucked into the chef’s English breakfast.
Arsenal currently lead the Premier League table by two-points but many believe Arsene Wenger needs to bolster his strike force, providing additional competition for Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud.
Whilst punters in the bar believe that a world-class addition is needed but Wenger clearly feels differently, with it stated he is prepared to pay around £20m to land Deeney.
Deeney is currently enjoying a fine run of form that has seen him score six goals in 11 appearances, helping the Hornets climb the Premier League standings as he creates a deadly partnership with Odion Ighalo.
Watford understandably do not want to sell either of their star strikers but could be tempted into a lucrative move, if the price is right.
Fans in the bar unanimously believe that Deeney is set for bigger things than Watford but don’t think Arsenal is the right club.
