Is Jordan Lukaku the preparation for Romelu? by Midkemma
With reports that Arsenal are looking at left backs and Gibbs future at Arsenal uncertain, this could be the year to see Wenger getting a younger player with great promise to cover for the aging Monreal, someone who has promise and also the attributes to step into the team when required.
Guerreiro is one left back that would meet the requirements but we would face stiff competition with Liverpool who may be looking to spend this summer for Klopp, there is no doubt that he looks like a player for the future but for the fee that he could command with popular interest, it may force Wenger to look at other opportunities and one may have dropped in his lap.
Jordan Lukaku is now a target for Wenger according to the Express, a young and powerful left back who likes to get forward and has a few tricks in his bag, this does sound like a player that would grab Wengers interest. Valued at around £2 million I believe it also sounds like a price that would grab Arsenals attention, a bargain in the modern era of football and we all know how Arsenal like their bargains.
If Arsenal were to get Jordan Lukaku then that could lay the foundation for Wenger to snatch Romelu and bag himself a striker that has already adapted to the fast and physical pace of the premier league, a player that looks to only get better with time, this would appeal to both Wenger and Stan Kroenke as he seems destined for great things. Getting him now could save us millions in the near future, even though he will not come cheap as it stands.
Romelu has spoken how he would like to play football with his brother after the pair had combined their efforts to score for Belgium, in another interview Romelu Lukaku revealed that he thinks highly of our manager and rates him as one of the top 3 managers he would like to play for and in yet another interview Romelu has revealed that he desires champions league football. With all that he has said it leaves little doubt that he would like to move and being able to play champions league football at Arsenal with his brother would meet all his requirements, the only question now is do Arsenal want them both or are the newspapers just saying what-ever gets them the sales?
What do you lot think?
Would you like the Lukaku brothers at Arsenal?
