The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have loved watching Rob Holding this season, and it appears as though Arsene Wenger has been impressed too…
According to the Mirror, Arsenal are looking to offer Holding a new deal this summer – with Wenger seeing the Englishman as a vital part of his side ahead of next season.
Holding has been somewhat of a breakout star this season, with his impressive performances really impressing those in the pub. He began the season as a rotational player, rarely featuring ahead of the likes of Mustafi and Koscielny, but slowly forced his way into consideration under Arsene Wenger.
Delivering performances far beyond his years in terms of quality, Holding became a solid, no-nonsense member of the Arsenal back-line – rarely putting in a bad performance despite his comparative youth for the Gunners.
Though he only joined last season and subsequently has several years remaining on his current deal, Arsenal clearly feel as though the defender deserves a pay rise, whilst they will also be looking to ensure that his future remains at the Emirates.
He has become a real fan favourite amongst the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern. Rarely in the spotlight and often keen to keep his head down, he has everything going for him as he looks to forge a successful career.
