Arsenal fans getting excited over links with Soyuncu despite being managerless

Arsenal are officially managerless after the final game of the season marked the end of Arsene Wenger’s 22-year tenure in North London, but that has reportedly not prevented them from pressing ahead with their transfer business.

According to the Telegraph, the Gunners are looking at a £35m swoop for Freiberg defender Caglar Soyuncu – who is only valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt – even in the absence of Wenger or any confirmation over his successor.

That may lead to a scenario where the new man in the Emirates hotseat inherits a player he hasn’t requested but the club’s fans seem pleased enough with the links.

They are enthused by the standard of the scouted player, the fact that the Gunners are pushing ahead with their recruitment ahead of the World Cup and the fact that it is being done in the absence of a top man at the club.
