Those who follow Arsenal news week-in-week out must remember the time when Hector Bellerin was asked to pick his fantasy XI and to everyone’s surprise he had picked Troy Deeney over Olivier Giroud.
After some digging to the Deeney to Arsenal story, we found out how Bellerin has talked Deeney up in the Arsenal camp and has got Arsene Wenger interested in the striker’s transfer.
According to Metro, Bellerin worked with Deeney during his brief loan stay at Watford and was really impressed with the forward.
Having seen Deeney become more efficient with his scoring, Gunners are tempted to make a move for the Watford striker.
The 27-year old has been tipped to make a move to Arsenal this January, according to Daily Mail. However, seeing Arsene Wenger’s trust in his squad and Olivier Giroud’s goal, I doubt that very much.
