The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been in a miserable mood all season, with many a night spent crying into their empty pint pots.
The Gunners have now gone 13 seasons since last getting their hands on the Premier League title and the pressure on long-term boss Arsene Wenger is getting pretty unbearable for the Frenchman.
Our landlord has spotted some surprising transfer news for those of a Gunners persuasion in today’s edition of The Express, with the paper reporting that Swansea City central defender Ashley Williams is a £20 million target for the club.
Williams is the Swans’ captain and will be 32-years-old in August, but according to the report in today’s paper, the Wales international has been identified by Wenger as the steel needed to strengthen the Gunners at the heart of defence.
One Arsenal fan is sat with his pals here in the Tavern and he thinks Williams should have been signed by the club years ago, stating that Williams has been a consistent Premier League performer for ages now.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome Ashley Williams to the club? Who else should the club sign in the summer?
