For most of summer, Wenger has been speculated as being on the brink of signing Karim Benzema from Real Madrid, however today it looks like it is another Real Madrid player that is on the verge of making a move to the North London club.
Denis Cheryshev, is the name on the fans lips here in the pub, after the Telegraph are running reports that Arsenal are very interested in signing the winger after he has told the Bernabeu hierarchy that he wants a move away from the Spanish capital.
Following on from this departure request, it is rumoured that the Gunners have lodged a £14.9 million bid for the 24-year old, however with Liverpool and Villarreal also said to be interested in the wide-man, Madrid are expected to be looking for upwards of £15 million for their man.
Our resident Gooners here in the Tavern feel that the club should be concentrating all their efforts to sign Karim Benzema, and not Cherysev!
What do you think Gunners Fans? Would this make you put down your pint and celebrate if he signs? Is he what you need? Would he get in the team? Let us know below!
