Metro are keeping us all busy here in the Football Transfer Tavern and it seems that they have a little bit of information for Arsenal fans.
The north London club are reportedly tracking Anderlecht starlet Mile Svilar ahead of a potential swoop this summer and as one of our punters notes, the 15-year-old is so highly rated that he has been dubbed the ‘new Thibaut Courtois’ which is high praise indeed.
Given the Gunners have been linked with Petr Cech on more than one occasion since Courtois rocked up in west London, we find it ironic that their new target is more akin to his rival – but as our landlord quips as he pours a pint, either of them would be an upgrade on what the club have at the minute!
Svilar is obviously miles away from being the finished article and it would be several seasons before he could be considered a starter for the north London club so our regulars suggest that Arsene Wenger moves for the starlet, sends him out on loan and also brings in an established number one to boot. Mind you, all that business might give the Frenchman a nosebleed!
Arsenal fans. Do you need to be making a move for an established goalkeeper this summer and not one for the future? Let us know your thoughts below.
