Arsenal fan weighs in on Neymar transfer saga with utterly ludicrous ‘unpopular opinion’

While it’s true that Neymar is not at the best point of his career after a difficult two years at Paris Saint-Germain, it seems pretty clear he’d improve this Arsenal side.

And of course, it’s also true that Aubameyang and Lacazette are quality players and have been a joy to watch together at the Emirates Stadium.
