Arsenal have £12.9 million rejected. They’ve been told £17.2 million would be enough

One of Arsenal’s midfield this targets this summer seems to be creeping closer to coming to the Emirates as Arsenal have lodged their first bid.

Sambi Lokonga, who has become one of Anderlecht’s best players, has been linked with becoming an Arsenal man this summer.

Arsenal opened negotiations with a £12.9 million bid. Anderlecht rejected this bid, however some reports have suggested that Anderlecht told the Gunners that £17.2 million would be enough to complete the signing of Lokonga.

Arsenal are famous for pushing pennies, so I’m not expecting us to just immediately accept this counter offer, however eventually it seems Lokonga will be heading to Arsenal.

This would be great business in my opinion. We will need to sign at least 2 top class midfielders as well, however getting a 21 year old 6/8 hybrid who is an improvement on the likes of Elneny and Ceballos is great business. He will be a great addition in terms of depth and has a lot of time to improve whilst learning under someone like Thomas Partey.
