The Daily Mail have our punters raising their heads from the bar and looking over at our landlord, who is taking a break in the Football Transfer Tavern and playing a game of pool.
They overhear him noting that Arsenal could well be set to miss out on Julian Draxler altogether and that has not exactly gone down very well.
The young starlet was heavily linked with a move to the Gunners and we certainly thought that he would be arriving on deadline day, yet now German side Schalke claim that the North London side did not even make a bid for the player!
Even more worryingly for the Emirates Stadium faithful, they now have to contend with the prospect of a bidding war in the summer and given Wenger was unhappy about the £37 million he would have had to pay in the window just gone, we doubt he would be happy to put his hand in his pocket for much more!
In the least surprising news we have heard all day, one of our punters note that Bayern Munich have a habit of buying all decent players in the Bundesliga that belong to their rivals and Pep Guardiola will be keeping a close eye when it comes to a summer move for Draxler!
Can you see Draxler ending up at Bayern Munich or does his long-term future reside in England? Let us know your thoughts below.
