Our resident Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are enjoying a pint of the pub’s finest ale, and have been alerted to the news filtering in from Austrian media outlet Sportnet – with the publication suggesting that the Gunners are eyeing a move for Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Naby Keita.
The 21-year-old has been simply terrific for his club this season, and has accumulated ten goals whilst accruing eight assists in the league this season – in what has been a sensational season for the Guinean star.
The Austrian outlet claims that Arsenal scouts were present at Red Bull Salzburg’s match against Mattersburg earlier this month, and are considering a move for the impressive midfielder in the summer.
A large contingent of Gooners over by the pool table here in the Tavern feel that the club need to be securing deals for the best talent from Europe, with them all agreeing that a move for Keita would be pretty decent, especially if bought for a relatively cheap fee!
Arsenal fans….. Is Keita the type of player you need? How do you feel you will fare in the summer transfer window? Will there be an overhaul? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
