Our resident Arsenal fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are in an incredibly bad mood, after they saw the Gunners fall to a 2-1 defeat to Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
The defeat severely dents their aspirations of lifting the Premier League trophy, ultimately putting Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City in the driving seat for the league title.
The news coming into the Tavern from Spanish outlet Don Balon has really caused a fracas here, with the publication suggesting that La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are plotting a surprise move for Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean forward has failed to score a goal for the north London side since October 2015 and his form has dipped significantly of late, but the Gooners over by the jukebox absolutely love the man!
The majority of Arsenal fans here in the Tavern admit it would be well and truly awful if the forward departed the Emirates Stadium in the summer, with them all saying he is pivotal to the club potentially securing a Premier League title.
Meanwhile, the landlord says Arsenal need to do all they can to keep hold of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, as they are both world-class footballers!
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you be gutted? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
