Arsenal fans have a huge smile on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim they could well be set to unveil a new player on Monday.
The player in question is Sami Khedria, who has been linked with a move to both Arsenal and Chelsea, but as one of our punters notes over a pint, it seems that the Gunners have won this particular transfer battle.
This is despite a personal call from Jose Mourinho to the Real Madrid star and we think that is a massive coup for Arsene Wenger and a real sign of intent from the Gunners this summer.
For once, Arsenal have actually been signing players of note and are really adding quality to their squad with Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy already on board and Nice’s David Ospina expected to join in the coming days too.
Now with the coup of Khedira, we think the Gunners could well do one better next season and actually see a title challenge through, not to mention go a little bit further in the Champions League to boot.
Arsenal fans. Is this the start of something really special after nearly a decade of difficulty? Let us know your thoughts below.
