This move could be absolutely huge for the Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern.
A lot was made of Arsenal’s summer transfer business in the Football Transfer Tavern, as the Arsenal faithful longed for Arsene Wenger to spend big after a disappointing 2015/16 campaign.
In typical Wenger fashion, the Gunners boss left it late to secure the final pieces of his jigsaw – but there was a gentle sigh of relief in the Tavern as Arsenal’s deals for the signings of Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi were confirmed after weeks of speculation.
Our landlord thought it seemed like a bit of a mad rush to the finish line at the Emirates, as Wenger tried to force deals over the line in time ahead of Transfer Deadline Day – and that is definitely something that the Gunners will want to avoid next season.
It appears that Arsene Wenger agrees, and if this report is to be believed – the Gunners boss is plotting a huge move next summer as he looks to rival a couple of his Premier League rivals.
According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are set to rival both Man Utd and Chelsea in pursuit of French forward Antoine Griezmann – who has been in sensational form over the last 18 months.
They add that many successful bid will likely be in excess of £80 million.
Man Utd and Chelsea’s interest in Griezmann was huge news in the Football Transfer Tavern last week, as we brought you news of battle between the two Premier League rivals ahead of a proposed move next summer.
The addition of Arsenal to the mix is only going to up the ante, and the fans in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait for it to get started.
