Arsenal fans have a bit of a smile on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro note they have made a £2 million bid for the ‘new Messi’.
As one of our punters note, if Sardar Azmoun even turns out to be half as good as the Barcelona star, Arsenal might actually win some trophies in the future!
The Gunners have put a bid in for the Iranian, who at 19-years-old has impressed when featuring for current side Rubin Kazan, but they will not be the only ones interested in the starlet.
Serie A giants Juventus and AC Milan have also been spotted monitoring the player and have not exactly made their interest a secret.
For Arsene Wenger to convince the player to come to the Premier League, our punters initially thought it may take him a fair bit of doing, but after our landlord explains that Azmoun has already confessed it would be a ‘dream’ to play at the Emirates Stadium, we think his task might be easier than originally thought.
Arsenal are in need of a forward this summer, but over a game of pool the regulars in the tavern claim that a world class star is needed, not an up and coming star. They want to see Wenger spend big money!
Do you think Wenger will invest in youth again and overlook a world class star? Let us know your thoughts below.
