Punters are looking up here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mail claim that Arsenal have missed out on signing Antonio Sanabria.
The Barcelona starlet has long been on the radar of Arsene Wenger and now it seems that Roma will be winning the race to sign him.
Arsenal have the issue of needing to bring in an established forward right now, which as one of our punters noted is not what the La Masia star would have been.
He would have been an up and coming star but one that could easily be developed to potentially thrive in the Arsenal first team squad.
Our landlord notes that it is a huge shame that the Gunners have missed out on a player who we would not only love to see in the Premier League but also someone who could have learnt from the Frenchman.
Wenger has a brilliant reputation for helping young stars come though, yet it will be the Serie A side who are tasked with developing his craft.
Bosses at the Camp Nou were also keen to retain the highly rated player, but missed out as Paraguayan international Sanabria made it clear he was craving first team football and fast.
Arsenal fans. Is this such a big loss? Surely bringing in established pros is more imperative? Let us know your thoughts below.
