Arsenal fans have lost their faith in recent times as they never know what kind of side will turn up in matches, but today’s victory over Manchester United has certainly made up for Thursday’s collapse.
Unai Emery has definitely helped transform the Gunners in the current campaign but ensuring consistency in all competitions has been a big issue, so the summer transfer window could prove key in terms of bringing in additions.
What’s the news?
Arsenal monitored Fabian Schar when he was at his former club FC Basel, and now it looks as if they’re looking to lure him away from St James’ Park in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror.
Although, North London rivals Spurs are also believed to be interested in the defender.
Schar has been excellent for the Magpies in the current campaign and his perfect start to life in England got even better recently as he received the goal of the month award for February.
Many Arsenal fans will agree that one of their side’s current weaknesses is at the heart of the defence as they’ve leaked goals at times this season, including in their recent Europa League clash with Stade Rennais.
Granit Xhaka is in regular contact with Fabian Schar as they both play together on the international stage with Switzerland, so the midfielder could definitely help the Newcastle star settle down to life at the Emirates and could have an influence on the defender potentially moving there.
Emery has to prioritise a summer deal for the central defender as he’s proved that he can handle the pressure of the Premier League already, and he can offer a threat in the final third.
Arsenal fans, do you think Schar could slot right into the heart of your defence? Surely he offers more than your current batch of defenders…
