Arsenal make £17 million bid for midfield target

Written by Edward Pitt

Arsenal have made a follow up bid for Sambi Lokonga of Anderlecht, having reportedly seen an opening offer rejected.

The new bid is £14 million with the potential of £3 million in add ons. However, the Belgian side are said to be holding out for £20 million. There are some reports which suggest that the bid has been rejected, though some suggest that negotiations are still ongoing.

Either, it looks like Arsenal are serious about getting their man and getting him quickly. At just 21 years of age, the club captain has shown real signs of promise and was reportedly close to getting into the Belgian Euros.

I think it is hard to complain about a signing like this. I think Arsenal will go in for another DM who is more likely to start, especially considering Xhaka’s impending departure. But, Lokonga is a clear improvement on some of our backup options and has so much time to develop into a long term replacement for Thomas Partey.

What do you think Gooners?
