Arsenal fans enjoying a pie and a pint here in the Transfer Tavern don’t really know what to make of the news they have just read in the Express which comes via Italian website Calciomercato – with the publication claiming that Arsenal are looking to sign 18-year-old Swiss striker Breel Embolo in the January transfer window.
Danny Welbeck was last week ruled out for several months following knee surgery leaving just Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott as options for Arsenal up front.
This has seemingly caused Arsene Wenger to look into potential transfer targets for when the window next opens, something many boozy Arsenal fans in here have been getting on his back for not doing during the summer.
The pacey striker who scored 13 goals for Basel in Switzerland last term has also been linked with a move to North London rivals Spurs, and English football fans could get a glimpse of the striker when England play Switzerland on Tuesday night, where he could be set to receive his fourth cap for his country!
Our resident Gooners here in the Tavern just want to see the club sign an established, world-class striker, but admit its looking very unlikely!
Arsenal Fans. Is Embolo the kind of striker you need to fire you up the table? Let us know below!
