Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been given some fresh transfer talk to discuss over their pints and burgers, with an international defender revealing he’d love to play for the Gunners.
The Set Pieces held an exclusive interview with Belgian international Jordan Lukaku, the younger brother of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, where the 21-year-old stated his belief that he would thrive in the Premier League.
“Do I see myself as a Premier League-bound? I don’t know, but it’s a league that would suit me. I have always been a fan of Arsenal, but I am mad about every Premier League club as long as the club doesn’t have to fight against relegation.”
“Arsenal has to go out and spend. Arsenal has become a youth academy for other top clubs. When Fabregas became top, he moved to Barcelona. When Van Persie became top and single-handedly guided Arsenal to a top-four finish, he moved to Manchester United. He had begged for reinforcements. Same case with Samir Nasri. He asked for a bigger salary. Arsenal has to be less stingy.”
Lukaku is hopeful of going to the European Championships this summer, where he could raise his pedigree further, after impressing with Belgian minnows Oostende. Given the success of brother Romelu in the Premier League, our landlord believes this defender would be a perfect fit.
Should Arsenal take a punt of this talented full-back? Let us know in the comments below!
