Our resident Arsenal supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are interested in the news filtering in from Buzz Sport via Metro – with the publication claiming that Arsenal are interested in a move for Lille winger Sofiane Boufal.
The media outlet suggests that the 22-year-old is worth £16 million – and he could be the player that Arsene Wenger brings into revitalise a struggling Gunners side.
The majority of the Gooners here in the Tavern expected Arsenal to be prime contenders for the Premier League, and also to be getting to the FA Cup final at least, but it simply hasn’t worked out for Arsene Wenger’s men this season, with a host of players not performing to their optimum standard.
A handful of Arsenal fans by the pool table all admit they’ve had enough of Theo Walcott, with them all agreeing it may be time for the England international to move on and depart the Emirates Stadium.
Our landlord feels Boufal would be a fantastic signing for Arsenal, as he has been an influential figure for Lille in Ligue 1 this season – and there is no reason why he cannot replicate his impressive performances in the Premier League with the north London side!
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Do you know much about Boufal? Let us know below!
