The Liverpool and Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have both had mixed seasons this year…
Both began with huge expectations, with Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger touted to achieve success this year, but both have reached the final hurdle with a fairly disappointing set of results to look back upon – with neither in the title race at present.
With the end of a season comes renewed opportunity, though, and it seems as though both clubs have got their eye on a similar target ahead of a new title challenge next season.
According to BILD, Liverpool and Arsenal are two of six clubs to have made an offer for Schalke star Sead Kolasinac. Interestingly, Kolasinac’s contract reportedly expires at the end of the season, and so the offers made by each club have been made directly to the player’s representatives.
Certainly, both clubs have a real need for him. From Liverpool’s perspective, James Milner is not a long-term solution at left-back, and Klopp certainly will sign a new player in his place this summer. For Arsenal, Nacho Monreal has been poor this year – and so Kolasinac could be the perfect replacement.
Our landlord is expecting a big summer from both of these clubs.
