The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been tweeting their club’s official Twitter account non-stop in response to their latest post. The club tweeted Per Mertesacker to congratulate him on his new role as the head of Arsenal’s academy, however, the fans could only bombard their club with cries of “announce Sokratis” as their frustration over transfers grows.

So far, this summer has been a successful one for the Arsenal fans. Unai Emery has come in with a clear vision for how he wants his side to be playing and so far he’s signing the right players to implement his style. Bernd Leno is a clear upgrade in goal to an ageing Petr Cech and second-rate David Ospina whilst Stephan Lichtsteiner provides the defensive discipline that Hector Bellering doesn’t yet have.
However, Emery has let fan favourite Jack Wilshere leave the club and so far is yet to replace him. Lucas Torreira is in the pipeline and Sokratis also looks likely to join, with both players seemingly ready to go straight into the The Emirates first-team ahead of the likes of Granit Xhaka and Shkodran Mustafi. This season will be an interesting one for The Gunners and whilst they’ll be keen to get it underway and see their new Arsenal play, at the moment, they just want to see some players signed.

Forget everything & announce Sokratis!

The Arsenal fans in the Tavern are starting to get impatient and if the club doesn’t announce someone soon then things will only get worse.
