The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been a disgruntled group this season, with chances of silverware long gone.
Several of their die-hard supporters are now calling for boss Arsene Wenger to leave the club and it remains to be seen what will happen in the summer.
The departure of the French boss doesn’t appear to be forthcoming however and the club’s hierarchy look set to hand their manager a war chest, in order to keep up with their big spending rivals this summer.
Our landlord has spotted an article in The Mirror, who are suggesting that Inter Milan strike Mauro Icardi is one of Wenger’s top targets this summer, with the player set to be available for around £25 million.
Icardi has netted 15 goals this season and with doubts raised over Olivier Giroud’s consistency, the Gunners look set to pursue a striker.
One Gunners fan is sat in the Tavern waiting for the darts knockout to begin and he thinks Icardi would be a shrewd signing, stating that the price is likely to go down well with Wenger, who can be sometimes ‘tight’ with his spending.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome Icardi? Just how good would he be in the Gunners’ team?
