The Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are still recovering from their hefty celebrations off the back of the announcement of Alexandre Lacazette, however, it’s time they got their heads back down and pressured the club to carry on buying.
A striker has been a must for the Gunners over the past few seasons, however, on far to regular an occasion last season they were caught out and let down by some sloppy play at the back, meaning some added mettle could come in handy as Arsene Wenger looks to break back into the title race this term.
With that in mind, according to reports from the Daily Mail, the Gunners boss has made Southampton captain Virgil van Dijk his new priority this summer after Premier League rivals Liverpool officially withdrew their interest having been accused of tapping up.
While our landlord reckons the Reds could still move for the Dutchman given no official charge came of the allegations, everyone is in agreement that the £70m-rated centre half would be an outstanding addition at The Emirates, especially after Wenger’s move to a back three at the and of last season.
