Wenger give green light to £50m Arsenal deal

The Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are anxious to see exactly what manager Arsene Wenger has planned for his squad this summer, after penning a new two-year deal off the back of the FA Cup final win last season.

The Gunners boss is plotting an overhaul of his side ahead of the new season as he looks to turn around his fortunes after arguably the worst season of his tenure in north London.

While in coming players will be crucial to that, cutting players from the fringes will also be key. With that in mind, according to reports from the Daily Star, Wenger is happy to sanction the sale of two big names at The Emirates.

London rivals West Ham are supposedly interested in a deal for both Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott this summer, in a double deal worth £50m.

Our landlord reckons that, regardless as to who comes in and leaves this summer Walcott is far from being the first name on the teamsheet and that Giroud will be keen to find regular first team football wherever he goes.

Arsenal fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think the deal could work for the Gunners, or should they avoid selling to Premier League rivals? Let us know…
