The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a big summer from boss Arsene Wenger, after his side faded well off the Premier League pace during the month of March to all but end their hopes of securing the title.
With the Frenchman under increasing pressure from the club’s supporters he will need to secure some top signings this summer, in order to get the fans back on his side.
Our landlord has spotted an article in The Metro which may offer the Gunners faithful some cause for concern, as it appears Wenger is lining-up a youngster.
Marseille’s 17-year-old wonderkid Bilal Boutobba has been identified by Wenger as one for the future and looks set to sign the winger in the summer.
The youngster has played just three times for his current club and although he is not quite ready for the demands of the Premier League, the club wish to tie him down ahead of his best years.
One Arsenal fan is sat by the pool table and he is unsure about the Frenchman to say the least, stating that the club already have an array of talented youngsters and Wenger would be better served spending his time looking for first-team players instead.
Arsenal fans, what do you know about Bilal Boutobba? Will he play much football for Arsenal?
