Despite not being in the Champions League this week, it has been a busy time for Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern and the Daily Star have made it a bit more hectic.
Punters crowd around the bar to hear the latest claim from the publication, who seem to be under the impression that Arsene Wenger is going to be keeping a very close eye on the recovery of Jay Rodriguez.
The Southampton player has been brilliant this season and part of the impressive English contingent at the club who should be on the plane to Brazil this summer.
Of course as one of our punters points out, this was all before the horror injury to the 24-year-old former Burnley hitman at Manchester City, who has now been ruled out of the tournament.
That is a devastating blow, but the news that the Gunners are considering a bid for the versatile forward should his recovery go to plan is a great bit of news for the rising star.
It is not ideal for the Saints however, who are facing a huge fight to hold onto their top players this summer – and with the vultures circling, good World Cup performances for their most wanted stars could prove a huge issue.
Arsenal fans. Have you seen enough in Jay Rodriguez this term to confirm that he could do a valuable job for the Gunners’ front line next season? Let us know your thoughts below.
