The Arsenal supporting drinkers here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been an angry bunch of late, following a mid-season collapse which has all but ended their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
The Gunners faithful don’t demand a team that wins every game but they certainly expect to be mixing it up with the division’s bigger clubs at the top end of the Barclays Premier League, something which they have failed to achieve this season.
The ardent bunch of Arsenal fans that have gathered here in the Tavern are most disgruntled about boss Arsene Wenger and his disinterest in splashing the cash which is required in order to keep the team competitive out on the football pitch.
One area in which the Gunners have sadly been found wanting in recent years has been in the middle of the park and that must be an area of concern as the club prepare to inevitably strengthen their squad for next season.
One player currently plying his trade out on the continent with Atletico Madrid could be a real game changer of a signing for the Gunners and they should do all they can to try and secure the services of Spain international Koke.
According to www.transfermarkt.co.uk, the midfielder could be available for around £46 million and his presence would add some real ability to an Arsenal midfield which has been found sadly wanting in recent years.
With Atletico miles behind leaders Real Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga this season, it could signal a quickfire sale during the summer and that could spell good news for the Arsenal contingent here in the Tavern.
