Metro have both Arsenal and Liverpool fans looking up with interest on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as their clubs are reportedly set to be offered Fabio Coentrao.
The Real Madrid left back is firmly out of favour at the Bernabeu right now and it seems that come the summer transfer window, Real Madrid and manager Carlo Ancelotti will let him leave for a cut-price fee.
Los Blancos will be willing to auction him off to the highest bidder meaning that both Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger are on red alert.
As one of our punters moves over from the bar to the pool to join in the conversation about Coentrao, he notes that neither Arsenal nor Liverpool have really got the best defences and signing reinforcements in this area is no bad thing.
One of our more sceptical regulars thinks that Wenger will predictably miss out whilst trying to find a creative midfielder he can play in their seriously overstaffed number ten role while Rodgers will be too busy trying to flog Mario Balotelli to any party remotely interested in him!
Liverpool fans. Would Coentrao represent a great signing to slot in at your left wing back role or has Alberto Moreno made the spot his own? Let us know your thoughts below.
