Arsenal fans are looking rather pleased here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claim the Gunners have made a £19.4 million bid for one of their top targets.
As our punters clamour around the bar to hear who the player is, our landlord informs them that it is Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez, who is set to leave the Camp Nou this summer.
As one of our regulars reminds us, Sanchez would ideally like to remain at the Catalan club but has made it very clear that he would favour a move to North London over Liverpool.
It seems that Arsene Wenger is finally pulling his socks up and making moves for the right targets.
That is welcome news to the majority of our punters who thought that once again, Arsenal fans would be left to sweat it out and worry if they were going to sign anyone at all this pre-season!
We are pretty sure Barcelona will accept the bid for Sanchez, given new boss Luis Enrique is desperate for cash and will sell the players he does not see as having a future at the Catalan club.
Arsenal fans. Is this news music to your ears? Is Sanchez the man for you? Let us know your thoughts below.
