Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern enjoyed a weekend full of celebration and they’re now discussing which signings could be made whilst they enjoy their christmas do.
It’s looking positive on one particular front, as Mundo Deportivo state Arsenal have begun contract discussions ahead of the potential arrive of Nolito.
Arsenal opened talks with the Celta Vigo forward earlier this month and it’s looking likely that the Gunners will match his £12.9m release clause when the transfer window reopens.
Barcelona are also keen on the Spanish international but their financial difficulties mean they are unlikely to enter the market in January, as they require sales to fund any incoming deals- whilst summer signings Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal are yet to feature for the club due to Barcelona’s transfer ban, which expires in the new year.
Arsenal currently sit second in the Premier League table and look in good form in their quest to win the title, though recruits need to be made in the mid-season window to bolster the chances of success.
Gooners, is Nolito the signing you need in January? Let us know in the comments below!
