Our resident Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern nearly choked on their peanuts after reading the news in the Metro – with the publication suggesting that the Gunners have made a £44.6 million bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Now, this news has got literally every single Arsenal supporting punter going crazy here in the Transfer Tavern, with them all agreeing this would be a sensational coup for the club, and would undoubtedly make them prime title contenders.
Metro cites a Spanish journalist in it’s report and it has got the landlord here in the Tavern wondering if this deal will happen or not.
Our landlord feels that if Arsene Wenger somehow manages to lure the 27-goal striker to the Emirates Stadium in January, the Gunners will win the Premier League trophy easily, as the forward is literally the complete package, speed, dribbling and a clinical finish!
At the age of 26, Aubameyang is reaching the peak stages of his playing career, and the Gooners over by the jukebox here in the Tavern feel the club should do everything in it’s power to lure the Gabon international to north London!
