Arsenal in talks with stoic Bundesliga stalwart, Wenger looking to strengthen defence

Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are becoming sick of watching their side miss out on big deals and are desperate to see some more business during this window. 

The spirits of those punters have been raised today though as news is making it’s way through the doors here at the Football Transfer Tavern, from Tribal Football, that the Gunners are in talks with Borussia Dortmund over a deal for their imposing centre-half, Neven Subotic.

The Serbian international was a mainstay during Jurgen Klopp’s reign at Der BVB but has fallen down the pecking order slightly since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel.

Wenger is in the market for the defender with Mertesacker’s stock falling in recent months and the 27-year-old, who is valued at just shy of £10m, could be the perfect replacement for the German.

Our Landlord was quick to point out though that Arsenal will have a fight on their hand’s with Liverpool, who can offer the chance to link up with his former boss, also being linked with the defender.

Gunners’ fans, what do you think? Will you beat your Premier League rivals to this one? Let us know your comments below…
