Though the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have rather little to moan about right now, those propping up the bar have cast a downhearted mood.
Perhaps the more eagle-eyed punters amongst them spotted reports emanating out of Italy.
According to Calcio Mercato, Gunners ace Santi Cazorla has been approached by Juventus over a shock move to the European titans next summer.
The Spaniard recently revealed he is yet to receive a new offer from the north London giants, with his contract due to expire at the end of the campaign.
There’s little doubt the two-time European Championship winner is one of the most popular figures at the Emirates and one of the best deep-lying playmakers in the Premier League.
Still, having lost Andrea Pirlo in that role reasonably recently, the Old Lady are believed to have opened the channels of communication with the 31-year-old.
The dominant Serie A champions are understood to be ready to bring the La Roja ace to Turin should he continue to be left in contract limbo on these shores.
Should Arsenal be doing all they can to keep Santi at the club?
