The Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern were delighted to see their team lift the FA Cup to end a disappointing season with a something of a flourish.
The Gunners supporters ensured that they celebrated beating Chelsea in the final but they are hopeful that next season will bring bigger rewards in the Premier League, after a disappointing fifth placed finish last time around.
Arsene Wenger has now signed a new two-year deal with the club and it is vital that he gets his recruitment right this summer to appease those fans who were disgruntled at him penning a new deal.
One area of the pitch that the Gunners definitely need to strengthen in is at the back and a new central defender will most certainly be on Wenger’s agenda for the summer months.
One man who Arsenal should look to enter the race for is Southampton man Virgil van Dijk who is seemingly set to move to a top Premier League side this summer.
With Liverpool now firmly out of the race for the Dutchman it could pave the way for another club and there is no reason why that shouldn’t be the Gunners.
One Arsenal fan is chatting to the landlord over a game of pool here in the Tavern and he is of the belief that the top quality central defender would automatically transform the club back into title contenders.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome van Dijk to the club? Let us know in the comments below!!!
