Arsenal fans are crowding around the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they clamour to hear what our landlord has to say after reading Metro.
According to the publication, the Gunners are closing in on a move for £12 million rated winger Alessio Cerci, who is currently playing his trade in Spain after making a move to Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Now as one of our regulars notes over a pint, Cerci has struggled to break into Diego Simeone’s side and would be open to a move away from the Madrid based side – with Arsenal at the top of his list considering they are long term admirers of the Italian.
The 27 year old is certainly not someone who Simeone and Atletico Madrid would consider essential to their side – meaning he would be able to leave should Arsenal make a reasonable offer.
Arsenal fans. Are you hopeful Wenger can pull off a deal for Cerci or will the winger elect to stay in Spain? Let us know your thoughts below.
