Missing out on players has become somewhat of a sewing motif for the Arsenal fans who tend to drown their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern, much to their chagrin.
Though Rob Holding is barely Jamie Vardy of Gonzalo Higuain, reports in the Sun (via HITC) claiming the Gunners are to miss out on the Bolton Wanderers sensation have come as a blow to the North London locals.
One of the most promising defenders playing outside of the Premier League, the 20-year old had been touted as a potential target for the Gunners and arch-rivals Spurs.
However, the report claims that Bournemouth are closing in on the defender as they bid to freshen up their ranks after what proved to be a solid season in the top tier.
The Cherries have had great success in developing burgeoning talent from the Football League and developing them into a competitive Premier League outfit.
Can Holding adapt to the Premier League right away?
