Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are starting to prepare themselves for an imminent double-deal, with reports stating their side is edging closer to another midfield addition.
Young Frenchman Rabiot is frustrated with his lack of playing time in Paris and has drawn vast criticism for his behaviour, which has pushed him closer towards the exit door as many believe the situation is now not able to be repaired.
It sets-up the second major transfer of Arsenal’s January, with Mohamed Elneny’s arrival for a £7.4m fee from FC Basel set to be confirmed imminently.
The two additions will bolster Arsenal’s midfield ranks, which have been plagued by injury problems this term as Jack Wilshere, Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla and Tomas Rosicky remain unavailable- with two of those yet to feature this term.
Our landlord believes the additions of Elneny and Rabiot will be stellar pieces of business, particularly as Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Rosicky see their contracts in North London expire this summer.
Arsenal fans, will these additions assure you of Premier League success? Let us know in the comments below!
