Delighted as a result of their key victory over Manchester United yesterday, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are at their happiest in months.
Though the Gunners are still facing a battle to make the top four, our north London locals are basking in a bed of optimism once again, so even reports from ESPN can’t knock them down.
They claim Premier League rivals Crystal Palace are ready to step up attempts to land Carl Jenkinson, having seen a transfer break down over the course of the January transfer window.
While a relatively popular figure amongst the Arsenal fans in the bar, the 24-year-old seemingly has very little future at the Emirates. With both Hector Bellerin and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain more dynamic options in the right-wing back role, the former Charlton man is extremely disposable.
Eagles chief Sam Allardyce is understood to be eager to reunite with Jenkinson, who he signed on loan at West Ham, this summer and has reportedly made him a transfer priority.
