However, the news from Spanish publication Fichajes, has caught the attention of the resident Gooners here in the Tavern, with the publication claiming that Arsenal sent scouts to watch Portuguese international midfielder Andre Gomes in action for Valencia on Saturday.
The 22-year-old midfielder got on the scoresheet during Valencia’s 3-0 win over Malaga in La Liga, and Arsenal scouts will surely have been impressed with what they saw from the midfielder.
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he has seen snippets of Gomes in action on the big screen here in the pub, and he feels that he clearly has an abundance of talent!
The 6ft 2 ace joined Valencia from Benfica in the summer and it would surely take a large offer from the north London club to lure him to the Emirates Stadium!
