There’s a big summer ahead for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who has the huge job of rebuilding on his hands after the club struggled to a fifth placed finish in the Premier League last season.
The Gunners fans lining the bar here in the pub have been less than impressed by what they’ve seen for months now, with a large number of them unhappy to see the Frenchman sign a new deal a few weeks ago too.
But with the French boss having signed a new two-year deal at the club, the team will be manager by Wenger again going forward and the time for the squad to pull together is growing more and more important by the game.
And one man that continues to be of huge importance to the club is striker Alexis Sanchez, who’s future at the Emirates still very much hangs in the balance.
The Chilean forward is yet to commit his future to the club with his contract set to expire next season and a move away is looking more and more likely.
And one man that has had his say on the matter is club legend Ian Wright, who on Twitter, said that he’d like to see either Lewandowski or Costa brought in, should the former Barcelona man leave.
As you can imagine, it’s drawn quite the reaction online and here’s the best of the fallout following his controversial comments…
No thanks Ian, he's a thug.

I think this would definitely work Ian we should do a swap deal plus a bit of money for Costa and Sanchez going the other way
