It turned out to be a rather torrid and embarrassing few months in the Transfer Tavern for boozy Arsenal fans this summer, after their club failed to make any notable additions to the squad, other than veteran shot stopper and former Chelsea no.1, Petr Cech.
Rumours about potential arrivals in the striker department came and went time and time again, with the likes of Karim Benzema, Gonzalo Higuain and Edinson Cavani to name a few all being reported as close to a deal with the Gunners at one stage or another.
So after all this heartbreak, the news coming into the pub today is lifting the Gunners’ spirits! The Mirror are reporting that a player who Arsene Wenger has tracked for some time now, Simeone Zaza, is free to leave Juventus. This has fuelled speculation the 24-year old could make a move to the prem in January, and with Welbeck set for lengthy spell on the sidelines this has come as much relief to fans in the Tavern.
What do you think Gunners? Want to see Zaza at the club? Let us know below!
