Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are not really sure what to make of the news they are reading in the Metro – with the publication suggesting that Juventus ace Fernando Llorente is edging closer to a move to the Emirates Stadium.
This comes after the revelation that the striker’s agent flew into London to hold talks with Arsenal about a potential move, and this news has received a mixed reaction among the Gunners fans here in the Tavern.
Our landlord had his say on the matter, “Llorente is 30 now and is reaching the latter stages of his playing career, and if i’m honest he is not the type of player that the Gunners need to be signing – Arsenal need a major, world-class striker, someone like Karim Benzema or Edinson Cavani.”
The majority of Arsenal supporting punters here in the Tavern today completely agree with the landlord, and feel that Llorente is to an extent too similar to current Arsenal forward Oliver Giroud!
Gunners fans….. What do you make of this news? Would Llorente be a shrewd addition? Or a waste of money? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
