Arsenal suffer blow in pursuit of Spanish forward

NolitoArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are in a grumpy mood this evening after seeing another reported target seemingly slip through the net.

Reports this week stated Arsenal were extremely interested in meeting Celta Vigo’s release clause for Nolito, whilst additional reports yesterday gave the Gunners a boost as Barcelona exited the race for the forward.

However, it appears that Nolito is going nowhere as he was speaking to Spanish publication Sport about a contract renewal with his club.

“Everything is practically sorted, so I don’t think there will be problems. I’m not waiting for the January transfer window to close [the agreement]. The situation in the summer was a burden for me and what has to happen, will happen. I’m calm because I am happy here,”

Nolito, who earned a recent call-up to Spain’s international squad for the final European Championship qualifies, is a target our punters believe would be good for Arsenal- but it seems any hopes of that have been crushed.

Arsenal fans, is Nolito the player you need to solve your attacking issues? Let us know in the comments!
