Our resident Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are enjoying a pint of the Transfer Tavern’s finest ale, and are discussing reports they have seen in the Daily Mail – with the publication suggesting that the Gunners have initiated talks with Borussia Monchengladbach regarding a major £35 million deal for their star midfielder Granit Xhaka.
The 23-year-old is one of Europe’s most coveted stars and it’s hardly a surprise to see why…. The Swiss ace has been simply sensational for the Bundesliga club this season, with his tenacious displays receiving a considerable amount of praise, and clearly, the attention of Mr Wenger.
This news has certainly excited all the Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern, with them all agreeing Xhaka would be a fantastic coup for the club, and would be exactly what the club needs going into next season.
Our landlord here in the Tavern feels that Xhaka and Francis Coquelin would be a superb partnership in the heart of the Arsenal midfield, and would ultimately give them a much better chance of winning the Premier League trophy.
Arsenal fans….. Surely you’re excited at this news? Is £35 million the right amount of money to pay? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
