Arsenal fans can’t quite believe what they’re hearing today in the Transfer Tavern but they’ve reserved a bottle of bubbly just in case the latest reports they’ve read are genuine.
The Telegraph says that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has privately admitted that Arsenal is the club he’d like to join this summer, with the Swedish legend set to leave Paris Saint-Germain upon the expiration of his contract.
34-year-old Ibrahimovic is expected to enjoy a final season in Europe before jetting off to the MLS and the Premier League is a likely destination, with Ibrahimovic already having experience in Italy, France and Spain.
Whilst a host of clubs will be keen on the signature of one of Europe’s deadliest finishers this summer, the news that he would prefer a move to Arsenal has surprised many in the bar- but the fans are adamant the Gunners should get this deal over the line.
It would only be a short-term deal for the veteran striker, likely to be just one-year, but our landlord feels he’d provide a massive impact to the Gunners and it would be a major statement of intent from Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal fans, would you take Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a year? Let us know in the comments below!
