Bittersweet transfer news for Arsenal fans in latest Balague update

Today has been a rollercoaster for the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern thus far. 

Indeed, the Gooners propping up our bar have read all kinds of reports linking them with a hugely expensive move for Thomas Lemar, as well as suggestions Alexis Sanchez could depart.

While our north London locals are debating as to whether the Frenchman would be a good replacement for Sanchez, Guillem Balague has dropped ANOTHER massive update in regards to such moves.

Taking to Twitter, the Spanish journalist revealed Arsenal have pulled OUT of a deal for Lemar as things stand, meaning the Chilean will have to STAY at the Emirates Stadium.

With the latter widely thought to want to move to Manchester City, Balague describes the hiccup as ‘much to his pain’.

Though Alexis is clearly one of the Gooners’ most important stars, many of the fans in our bar want him gone after his performance against Liverpool, especially with his contract up next year.

What a day it’s been for our resident Arsenal supporters so far.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Where does Sanchez go from here? Obviously, Arsenal can’t sell without a replacement, though for a man who looks as if he’s desperate to move, how does he get the fans back on side?

Losing him for free next year will be gutting, so it’s hard to see this being the end of the story.
