Arsenal fans are looking over joyed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that they are about to land Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton.
Now as one of our punters notes, landing the coveted midfielder is good enough by itself, but when you consider the fact that he has turned down the chance to join their north London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, it becomes that little bit better.
We think that Arsene Wenger needs a player like the Frenchman in the middle of his park and considering he will be available for around £21.4 million, we cannot see what any club would not at least take a look at him.
Schneiderlin has made no secret of his ambtion and desire to play in the Champions League, and at least Arsenal can guarantee that for him – unlike their neighbours.
Arsenal fans. Is the fact that the midfielder would rather come to you than your ‘rivals’ as good as making the transfer itself? Will Wenger be able to push through a deal? Let us know your thoughts below.
