Metro have a claim that has both Chelsea and Arsenal fans looking very unimpressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
They note that one of the duo’s top targets is set to snub the pair of them in favour of a new deal.
As our landlord notes, obviously our regulars expected one unhappy set of fans, but to have two is not ideal for the atmosphere in the tavern. For the tequila sales however, it certainly is.
Jackson Martinez is someone we have talked about a fair bit and it seems that it was all in vein with the Colombian forward about to pen a new deal with his current club Porto.
This is as we all know, a huge blow for the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal, both of whom have been looking for a forward for some time now.
There are other options for the London pair, with Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema a name that has been linked to both clubs.
One of our punters moves away from the pool table and claims that Chelsea have the prolific Romelu Lukaku who is set to come back from a loan spell in the summer, and given his form at Everton, we simply cannot see how he would not be a top choice for the West London side.
Will it be Lukaku and Giroud leading Chelsea’s and Arsenal’s front lines next season or will either of the duo land a new superstar? Let us know your thoughts below.
