Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are buzzing after Metro revealed that they have joined Liverpool in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for £10.9m.
The Gunners are determined to challenge Chelsea for the title next season and in doing so Arsene Wenger knows he must sign a proven world-class striker.
Because despite Olivier Giroud’s purple patch this season, the Frenchman cannot do this consistently throughout a whole season, which is why Wenger is looking to sign another striker.
Not only is Ibrahimovic one of the best players in the world, he also has experience of winning trophies.
The Swedish international has supposedly fallen out of love with Paris as a city and punters are not surprised to hear this after his outburst earlier on during the season when he slammed Ligue 1 officials.
And PSG understand his situation are looking to offload him early on rather than fight against the tide and try and persuade him to stay.
