While it was a disappointing campaign for the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, they’re ready to dream again this summer.
Amid talk of a sensational bid for Monaco star Kylian Mbappe, the Gunners propping up the bar were delighted to welcome Schalke star Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer yesterday and many are hopeful this sort of pro-active work continues over the next few months.
