The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for big changes at the Emirates this summer…
The 2016/17 season has been one to forget for everyone involved at Arsenal, not least for manager Arsene Wenger. The Frenchman has struggled amid increasing uncertainty regarding his future at the Emirates – leaving many in the pub expecting him to depart this summer.
However, if the Times is to be believed, it would appear as though it will not be Wenger that is leaving – but rather, it could be two of Arsenal’s most popular stars.
According to the Times, Arsenal – with Wenger included – are willing to SELL star duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil this summer as part of a rebuild at the Emirates. The reported decision stems from a combination of poor form, a lack of contract developments and a poor attitude – with Wenger seemingly ready to continue in the job without the attackers.
This would certainly be a surprise to our landlord, given that he has touted both Ozil and Sanchez as far more important pieces to the Arsenal puzzle this season than Arsene Wenger. The Arsenal fans in the pub, all of whom love the duo, are not very happy with this.
Whilst Ozil has struggled this year, Sanchez has impressed – scoring 18 Premier League goals.
Indeed, it seems as though it is going to be all change at the Emirates this summer.
In other news, the Gunners are currently sweating on the fitness of Alexis Sanchez after he picked up an injury over the weekend.
