Chelsea and Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have had to be separated this morning, after pints were thrown following a debate regarding which side needs a stellar attacking signing more.
The argument begun when the fans were alerted to a report from Goal, which states both London sides have entered the running for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic – who is desperate to seal a move to the Premier League.
Croatian ace Perisic has ambitions to play in England and both Premier League giants have been put on alert, with various sources stating the winger is ‘almost certain’ to seal a transfer to English football in the summer.
Arsenal’s interest comes amidst continued speculation surrounding the future of Alexis Sanchez, who enters the final 12 months of his deal at the Emirates Stadium this summer, and the 28-year-old will be seen as an ideal replacement.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are keen to bolster their depth in attack ahead of a return to the Champions League next season but our landlord has reminded the fans in the bar that Manchester United are also linked with the player’s signature.
This news has particularly irritated the Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern, with them all hoping to see the Croatian star ply his trade at Old Trafford.
