Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with huge interest at the latest claim coming from Metro.
The publication seem to think that the Gunners could well move for a Real Madrid player in January.
Now as our punters note, had that player been a Luka Modric or even a Sami Khedira, they would have been elated but to find out it is Iker Casillas – who has been lacking of late – this particular rumour is met with rolled Gunners fans’ eyes.
Arsenal fans in the tavern think their team has far bigger issues than signing another goalkeeper and the injury list that is piling up with Jack Wilshere the latest to receive an injury scare.
This is not to mention the lack of summer reinforcements in key areas such as central defence and central midfield with many Gunners fans reaching the end of their tether regarding the form of Mikel Arteta; and don’t get them started on Mesut Ozil!
Casillas may have retained his number one shirt at the Bernabeu after Diego Lopez’s exit to AC Milan but after shaky performances and only three points for Carlo Ancelotti’s men thus far in La Liga, the wolves are out and rumours of an impending exit are once again rife.
Arsenal fans. Would it be typical Wenger to sign a past it player like Casillas and fail to get in what you actually need? Let us know your thoughts below.
