Sport Arena have reported that Arsenal have made an official £17 million bid in what might be their first signing of the summer.
One of the areas Arsenal are likely to prioritise is our left wing, where Aubameyang struggled last season and where Martinelli might still be a bit too raw. True, Saka and Pepe could play on the left, but Arteta seems to want inverted wingers to allow Tierney to overlap.
Arsenal have reportedly made a £17 million bid for Shakhtar Dontetsk winger Manor Solomon in whom we’ve been interested for some time. He had a really impressive Champions League campaign and at just 21 year old, he has so much time to turn his talent into real, worldwide success.
However, reports are mixed. Most reports suggest we are interested, however, it is only Sport Arena that reported we have made a bid. In fact, respected Arsenal journalist Chris Wheatley reported that we have not made a bid yet. Meaning, I think we have to take these reports with a pinch of salt.
That’s a good thing I think; we have lots of young wingers, what we need is an established left winger who can make a more instant impact in our team. Sterling or Grealish would be the dream, but even someone like Zaha who at 28 can play for 4 more years and help phase Martinelli into the starting lineup over the next few years.
