Arsenal supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are deliberating the latest bit of transfer gossip that has come in from Belgian publication Anderlecht Online – with the outlet claiming that Arsenal scouts are tracking the progress of 14-year-old PSV centre-back Aboubacar Kone.
Now, the Gunners manager Arsenal Wenger is notorious for plucking young players from across the globe and turning them into superstars, and it seems that this PSV defender could be another player to add to that list.
Our resident Gooners over by the billiards table are discussing this news with our landlord, with most of the Arsenal fans feeling quite excited about this, whilst a minority of the Arsenal fans feel the club need to be pursuing established, world-class footballers!
Our landlord has to agree with the minority of Gooners here in the Tavern today, and feels that if the north London club want to become serious title contenders, they need to be signing players who are world-class, and are guaranteed to make an immediate impact.
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Do you know much about Kone? Is this the type of player you should be signing? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
