Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been preparing for the new year’s eve party at the bar but they’ve still found time to discuss the latest rumours concerning their club, expressing their surprise at one particular report.
Arsenal’s experienced trio are all of of contract in the summer and are not likely to be handed an extension; with Rosicky suffering from a long-term injury problems and Arteta having been offered a coaching role in North London.
A loss of three established players at the Emirates Stadium is a major risk for Arsenal but the trio on the fringes of the first-team, meaning they can be offloaded to make way for higher profile and more useful players.
Arsenal are desperately scouring the market for potential January recruits having seen first-team stars Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin ruled-out for some time, whilst Jack Wilshere is still yet to feature this season.
The Gooners in the bar believe that this would be a good move from Arsene Wenger and are excited to see who can come in.
Arsenal fans, which midfielders would you bring in to replace this trio? Let us know in the comments below!
