While we’re not ones to indulge in specious transfer tittle-tattle, our old pal Matt Spiro has posted something this evening that might well be of interest to most Gooners.
There’s obviously still much to concentrate on this season, but we’re just a few weeks away from a summer break, and because of a late finish to this campaign and an early start to the next one, time will be tight this summer so some things should be in the pipeline already.
Anyway, on his Twitter account, Matt reckons the Arsenal manager is tracking Monaco centre-half Aymen Abdennour, as well as Lyon forward Nabil Fekir.
Back in April, Fekir’s father reportedly told French media, “Nabil would like to finish 1st or 2nd and play Champions League football with Lyon. If he leaves, it’ll be for Arsenal. It’s the only club that can enable him to progress, with Arsene Wenger. He will not go to Manchester City to sit on the bench.”
Obviously much can happen to swing a deal one way or the other, but Matt isn’t somebody who posts rubbish for the sake of it.
Silly season hasn’t begun yet, but but we can indulge a little transfer talk from time to time. Let’s see what happens.
