Arsenal Transfer Target Deletes Scathing Tweets Calling Arsene Wenger A 'French F**k'

Arsenal Transfer Target Deletes Scathing Tweets Calling Arsene Wenger A 'French F**k'

Arsenal transfer target Runar Alex Runarsson is already facing backlash for a string of tweets in which he labelled Arsene Wenger a 'French f**k.'

Runarsson has been linked with the Gunners as a backup for goalkeeper Bernd Leno, as Emiliano Martinez is close to joining Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old currently plies his trade with French outfit Dijon and is available for £1.5 million.

But Arsenal fans have gone back through his Twitter and found a number of unsavoury comments about legendary ex-manager Wenger.

The Icelandic shot stopper, who has since deleted the tweets, will have been a teenager when he criticised Wenger during the 2011/2012 campaign.

Back in July 2011, he tweeted: Arsene Wenger is a little too stupid! #frenchf**k."

That summer was a damaging one for the North London outfit, who saw key players Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri depart for Barcelona and Manchester City respectively.

Runarsson again took to Twitter and stated: "Arsene Wenger is definitely the dumbest man on this planet! #frenchf**k."

A third tweet read: "Hell, this Wenger guy is stupid."

The scathing attacks and interest in results point to Runarsson being a childhood Arsenal fan.

Fans have reacted to the tweets and they think the club should reconsider making Runarsson their fifth signing of the summer.

Wenger has gone down as one of the Premier League's greatest ever managers after helping revolutionise the game in the early 90's.

He left Arsenal back in 2018 and the club are yet to recapture their success under his leadership.

However, current boss Mikel Arteta looks to be on the right back after a promising start to life in the dugout.

Arteta helped guide the club to FA Cup glory last season and has seen his role change from head coach to manager.

Chief executive Vinai Venkatesham expressed his delight at the Spaniard's progress after taking over during 'the toughest nine month period this club has had in its 134-year history.'

The 38-year-old's new role means he will have a bigger say in terms of how the club operates going forward.

Arteta will likely lay down the law to Runarsson should he move to the Emirates Stadium.
