Our resident Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been in an incredibly downbeat mood recently, and it’s hard to blame them, with the side knocked out of the FA Cup by Watford, and effectively out of the Champions League.
The news filtering in from AS via Metro has certainly caught their attention though, with the media outlet suggesting that Arsenal have put a multi-million pound offer on the table to Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos.
This news has caused quite a fracas here in the Tavern with Arsenal fans rejoicing at the potential prospect of seeing Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Toni Kroos in the same starting eleven!
The German midfielder has a contract that lasts until 2020 at the Bernabeu, but it seems it won’t stop Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal in attempting to lure the 26-year-old to the Emirates Stadium in the summer.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern thinks this would be a fabulous deal for Arsenal, as the club are going to need to invest heavily in their midfield in the summer, with Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini looking set to depart the club at the end of the season.
Arsenal fans….. You must be happy with this news? Can you envisage it happening? Let us know your thoughts below!
