Arsenal could come up short in their quest to sign Boca Juniors starlet Rodrigo Bentancur, with news emerging through Gazzetta dello Sport via The Express, that Inter Milan are pressing ahead with a £15 million move of their own.
The Gunners supporters who are present in the Transfer Tavern are not happy with this news and hope that it isn’t a sign of things to come, ahead of what looks set to be a busy summer for the flailing side.
It was thought that Arsenal were in pole position to sign the 18-year-old wonderkid but their scouting missions could now prove to be a waste of time, with the player weighing up a move to Serie A instead.
The versatile midfielder is set for a bright future and whoever does secure his signature will have a real prospect on their hands.
One member of the Gunners contingent has his head in his hands over by the pool table, stating that he fears the worst in the transfer market this summer. He thinks that the club will miss out on several deals due to boss Arsene Wenger’s incompetency to close out deals.
Arsenal fans, would you be gutted to miss out on Bentancur? What would he bring to the team?
