Arsenal’s search for a striker is well known, and Arsene Wenger, ever-willing to embrace the modern world, is using a brand new app to help him find a new front man.
Arseblog News can reveal that the Frenchman has downloaded ‘Strikr‘ – a new Tinder-style app, created by one of the world’s biggest football agencies.
The ‘game’, open to all professional managers and footballers, looks to take the hassle out of the arduous transfer negotiation process.
After outlining what they’re looking for on their profile and selecting pictures – often including pouty gym selfies, snaps of sedated tigers, quotes from Marilyn Monroe – participants can indicate whether or not they ‘like’ each other with a simple right-swipe on their smart phone.
Wenger is understood to be so enamoured by the app that he often finds himself spending his lunch break at London Colney vigorously ploughing the transfer market. Ivan Gazidis and Dick Law have also set up profiles, although the latter’s name has seen him repeatedly marked as a possible spam account.
Let’s hope this app delivers the happy ending we’ve all been waiting for.
