The Bristol City fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that the club are interested in signing a former Arsenal youngster.
HITC is reporting that the Championship club are set for a spending spree this summer and that Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury is a top target.
City manager Lee Johnson looks set to be handed a serious amount of money this as the club are hoping to mount a serious challenge to reach the Premier League next season.
Lansbury has just 12 months left on his current deal at the Citu Ground, and Lee Johnson is confident he can persuade him to sign for the club should the two sides agree a fee.
The Bristol City fans in The Tavern are delighted to be linked with a player of Lansbury’s quality, and feel it would be a signal of intent should he make the move to Ashton Gate this summer.
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he’d be surprised to see Lansbury move to a struggling side like Bristol City, and would imagine he’d make the move to the Premier League in the summer.
Bristol City fans….. This is surely good news? Is Lansbury a player you’d want? Let us know below!
