The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Unai Emery can oversee a signifcant improvement in the quality of his squad this summer, and they have identified two midfielders who they believe would make a huge difference.
Emery has plenty of expectation resting on his shoulders as he oversees a significant transition period in Arsenal’s history into a post-Wenger era, and the supporters are expecting plenty of signings this summer to cement his personal stamp on the team.
With Jack Wilshere’s contract moving closer to expiry and doubts persisting over Aaron Ramsey’s future, it’s likely that Emery will dip into the transfer market for at least one new centre-midfielder in the coming months.
In recent days the Gunners have been linked with moves for both Adrien Rabiot and Jean Michael-Seri by the Daily Mirror and Sky Sports respectively, and so far the news has been greeted with huge optimism by the supporters on Twitter.
However, with Arsenal moving into a new era it seems that plenty of the supporters are prepared to say goodbye to Wilshere this summer in order to make way for new signings.
Although there are doubts about Rabiot’s conduct away from the field and Seri’s ability to replicate his form from Ligue 1 in the Premier League, the aforementioned pairing would be welcomed to the Emirates with open arms if the overall twitter reaction is anything to go by.
Here’s what the Arsenal fans have had to say about the potential of signing Rabiot and Seri on Twitter…
If Seri and Rabiot join @Arsenal it will surely be curtains for Jack Wilshere's Arsenal career.

This team is able to get top 4 without a problem. Lethal attack. Solid midfield. Plenty of forward drive in the counter attack and defensive ability in Seri and Rabiot (even though neither are outright defensive midfielders). Defence still not perfect but a big improvement. pic.twitter.com/3AsFS9SDDv

Get rabiot in, sell Wilshere, get seri in, sell Xhaka and put Ramsey in front of them

This summer seems very weird I can’t tell if we are really going to do business or it will be excuses once again. I can live with missing Meyer if it meant we got Seri/Rabiot Nzonzi and Ramsey resigns. Thoughts on Wilshere? I think it may be time to say bye

Honestly would take both and sell Jack. Seri isn't all that defensive. Rabiot better for DM. Seri perfect beside Rambo.
