Our resident Arsenal supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are still getting over losing to Barcelona on Tuesday night, with the side simply not able to convert key chances throughout the match.
The news in the Mirror has put a smile on several faces of the Gooners here in the Tavern, with the media outlet suggesting that the north London side are stepping up their interest in in-form Watford striker Odion Ighalo.
Ighalo, 26, has been simply sensational for the Hornets this season and it seems that Arsene Wenger wants to lure the forward to the Emirates Stadium, to help bolster their relatively depleted attacking line.
Our landlord here in the Tavern reckons Ighalo is a fantastic player, and is the perfect all-round striker, with pace, strength, finishing and the ability to dribble with the ball – the landlord feels he would be a superb acquisition for Arsenal.
The publication suggests that Ighalo is rated at £20 million, and a handful of Watford fans in the corner of the Tavern say they would snap anyones hand off for that sum of money!
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Ighalo at the Emirates Stadium? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
