We knew it was coming and the majority of our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are showing no surprise at the latest claim coming from the Daily Mirror at all after the publication noted Paco Alcacer is a wanted man.
The now senior Spanish international forward has been sensational this season and has shown just how good he is for Valencia and also La Roja, scoring for both and it seems that now Arsenal and Chelsea have caught on to this.
As one of our regulars notes over a pint, after seeing the 21-year-old come on leaps and bounds at the Mestalla, we would be careful about making a big move this January and especially one that could possibly harm or stall his development.
Chelsea have, finally, managed to sign an out-and-out forward to be proud of and we don’t think that Paco would be able to break into Chelsea’s first eleven right now.
Arsenal however could be an option for him – but in the summer – according to our landlord.
Arsenal fans. Would you like to see the young starlet come and join you? Do you think he has the talent to be a success in the Premier League? Let us know your thoughts below.
