It’s not often you’ll hear a top Premier League club linked with an Australian star, and the Arsenal fans who’ve heard of such reports have been slightly underwhelmed as a result.
Here in the Transfer Tavern, we’ve had to listen to the Gunners as their title hopes faded away once again. Even the rest of our punters (other than the Spurs lot) wanted big name signings to arrive at the club, just so they don’t have to hear about it anymore!
Still, Arsene Wenger is famously, or infamously depending on which way you look at it, understated in the transfer market.
With swathes of supporters chomping at the bit for blockbuster names to arrive, the latest name linked is somewhat of an anti climax.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic is of serious interested to the North London giants as they bid revamp their engine room this summer.
Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Mathieu Flamini are all due to depart, opening up space in the ranks for new additions over the course of the transfer window.
The 23-year old Socceroo has had his career blighted by injuries, though has impressed for the Hoops when fully fit.
It is claimed that while Arsenal are leading the chase, a number of Italian and Spanish clubs are also casting a keen eye over this situation at Celtic Park.
Underwhelmed, Arsenal fans?
