The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been a sour faced bunch of late, after their form in March pretty much ended any lingering hope of the club winning a trophy this season.
The Gunners can of course still win the Premier League title but it would take a collapse of epic proportions to see Leicester City or Spurs not win the league from their positions right now.
Well, today could be a more positive day for the Gunner contingent as the landlord has spotted a piece in German outlet Bild via The Metro, that claims Granit Xhaka to North London is all but sealed.
The Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium of late and it now seems like a £35.3 million summer deal has been agreed between the two clubs.
One Arsenal fan is having a quiet pint in the Tavern this evening and he concedes to not knowing too much about the incoming player, although he does admit that a stellar signing of this magnitude is sure to put a smile back on some Arsenal fans’ faces.
Arsenal fans, are you happy with the new recruit? Who would you like to see arrive next?
