Arsenal fans are looking slightly confused here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that the Gunners are set to make a £25 million bid for Fabio Coentrao.
The Real Madrid outcast is desperate for some first team football and as one of our punters notes, he will probably get it in North London.
However, to pay such a huge transfer fee for a player who has hardly featured for Carlo Ancelotti, and even when he did, failed to really impress, there have been some raised eyebrows.
Arsene Wenger is desperate to add some solidity to his back line but quite if the left back is the man for the job seems to have our punters raising their voices.
When a few Gooners could finally be pulled away from the pool table, they scoff that £25 million is far too much to be paying for the Portuguese international.
Our landlord notes that it is far too much money for Wenger to spend and we think the Frenchman may just end up sticking with current left back options Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs.
Arsenal fans. Do you think that Coentrao is worth anywhere near £25 million? Should you just be sticking with Monreal and Gibbs? Let us know your thoughts below.
