Metro have a fantastic claim for Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they report that Andres Iniesta has been urged to join the Gunners.
The Barcelona star has of course been one third of the best trio we have ever seen in football – and quite how Xavi and Lionel Messi would feel should their team-mate leave remains to be seen!
Barcelona are at the end of an era, but that does not mean Iniesta should look elsewhere according to our regulars in the tavern.
However, the Spaniard has been urged to consider a future elsewhere, and in keeping with what seems to be his mission this summer, Santi Cazorla has urged another one of his international colleagues to join him and leave La Liga behind.
The Gunners midfielder claimed when asked if he could sign any player in the world to partner him in the middle of the park: “Andres Iniesta is the one I’d pick. There’s no player like him.”
Of course, quite if Iniesta would leave Barcelona and indeed his kindred spirit Xavi behind remains to be seen, and our punters think that is about as likely as the Gunners winning a trophy!
Do you think Iniesta would be tempted by Arsenal? Is his trophy cabinet too full already? Let us know your thoughts below.
