The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are crying out for Arsene Wenger to bring some quality talent to The Emirates Stadium this month.
After watching their side crash out of the FA Cup against Nottingham Forest on Sunday afternoon, the resident Gunners in the tavern were bemoaning the state of their club both on and off the field. Arsenal have struggled to hit the ground running in the Premier League this season as they sit 5 points adrift of the top-four in 6th position after 22 fixtures.
On a more positive note, Wenger’s side still have both the Europa League and the Carabo Cup to play for this season, so it’s not all doom and gloom for the Gunners just yet.
However, for the vast majority of the Arsenal supporters, qualifying for the Champions League is the priority, and they are adamant that new signings will be necessary this month if they wish to achieve their goal – especially if Alexis Sanchez leaves the club.
Considering that Sanchez’s departure appears to be both inevitable and imminent, Wenger must begin his mission to sign a replacement.
The Arsenal supporters have already began a discussion regarding potential replacements for Sanchez on Twitter, and judging by the reaction so far, it seems that Ligue 1 talent Nabil Fekir is the fans choice to succeed Sanchez.
Fekir has been in potent form for the French giants so far this season, as he boasts a record of 16 goals and 3 assists from his 23 appearances in all competitions.
Based on these statistics alone, it is easy to understand why the Arsenal fans are so eager for Wenger to bring him to North-London this month…
Here’s what the Arsenal supporters had to say about a potential move for Fekir on Twitter.
Just make this happen.

The reality is, we should be looking to bring in two players to replace Alexis Sanchez. We need to break the bank & sign two of Malcom, Lemar, Mahrez, Fekir, Guedes. It'll give the team a huge lift like it did when we signed Özil back in 2013. Get some ballers at my club @Arsenal

Lemar and Fekir on Arsenal radar… Why won't we just shoot?

Fekir and Lemar.. one to Arsenal one to Liverpool. My guess is Fekir to Arsenal and watch how easy then get it done.. unlike us who take forever
