Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t the best of friends with our Newcastle United supporting punters, as reports today suggested the Gunners will swoop to snatch two prized-assets.
The Daily Express says Arsene Wenger has set his sights on two Newcastle players ahead of this summer’s transfer window, as he aims to seal a deal for both Rolando Aarons and goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.
Aarons, 20-years-old, has been regularly linked with the Gunners for the past two transfer windows and Arsenal’s search for a long-term goalkeeper has seen them plot a move for 19-year-old Woodman.
Whilst Newcastle can expect to receive some funds from the Gunners in a tribunal, should the duo move, the Magpies are poised to lose both players on a free transfer as their contracts expire at the end of the season.
Of the pair, Woodman is most likely to move as he’s yet to open talks regarding a new deal whilst Aarons has previously stated his desire to break into Newcastle’s first-team.
Our landlord feels both transfers are very likely to go ahead, particularly if Newcastle fail to avoid relegation this term.
