Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern sipping their pints and hoping for new signings this week to bolster their chances of Premier League success have had a beaming smile put on their faces, with positive reports in the press.
The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal made a fresh-bid for Leicester City’s highly-rated full-back Ben Chilwell over the weekend, following up their interest from the summer where the Gunners saw a bid rejected.
England U21 international Chilwell has also attracted the attention of Manchester City and Liverpool, with the 19-year-old tipped for an excellent future- and Arsenal want him as the long-term successor to Nacho Monreal.
With Leicester City eyeing replacements for the injured Jeffrey Schlupp, Chilwell’s first-team chances with Claudio Ranieri’s side could be restricted further and Arsenal want to use this to their advantage.
Our landlord believes that Arsene Wenger is assembling a ferocious defence for the coming years, with the potential arrival of Chilwell adding to the already excelling Hector Bellerin and Calum Chambers; both of whom are tipped for bright futures.
Arsenal fans, how many signings do you need this week? Let us know in the comments below!
