If you ask any group of Arsenal fasn what the most important signing that Arsene Wenger has to make this summer, you would expect 90% of them to say that we need a new top defensive midfielder to share the load with Francis Coquelin. One of the best young players in that position is the Monaco star Geoffrey Kondogbia who would appear to leaving the French giants this summer.
The big, strong French international is sure to have lots of potential suitors, but according to a report in the Star, Arsene Wenger has made personal contact with Kondogbia to try and lure him to the Emirates.
The Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio revealed: “Both Inter and Milan are competing to sign him, but now face competition from Arsenal.
“Wenger holds Kondogbia in high regard, the two have already talked.”
This is definitely an encouraging development for Arsenal fans, and the Frenchman ould appear to be exactly what we need to set ourselves up for next season. If we can secure Petr Cech and Kondogbia early on in this transfer window, then we spend the rest of the summer searching for the superstriker marquee signing that will signal the end of this years spending spree.
Get those three signings and we will surely be challenging Chelsea for the title next season…
Onwards and Upwards!
