AC Milan to compete with Arsenal for Ligue 1 midfielder

Tuttosportnewspaper via MilanLive is claiming that AC Milan is considering a move for Arsenal target, Ibrahim Sangare.

The 22-year-old Ivorian plays for the relegated French side, Toulouse and he has become a transfer target for Arsenal in this transfer window.

At 22, he has already played five times for the senior Ivory Coast national team and almost 100 times for the French side.

He has a deal with them until 2021, which might see them open the door to sell him instead of losing him for nothing next summer.

The report claims that he will cost any buying side just 10 million euros, a fee that shouldn’t be a problem for Arsenal to pay.

The Gunners are looking to land a midfielder before the transfer window closes. Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey are their top targets, however, both players won’t come cheap and Sangare might be the best alternative.

Mikel Arteta has made several members of the current Arsenal team better players and he has also shown the willingness to trust the club’s youth players.

Should Sangare move to the Emirates, he will gain access to one of the best young coaches around Europe and maybe the Gunners might turn him into a top player.

    We want aouar,ac milan can have him….

  2. Sean Williams says:

    I agree Aouar is the real deal and who we need and must buy. Sangare though is very tall and a good ball winner. Would help defend set pieces well. Maybe instead of Partey.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      As well as Partey, not instead of surely. Partey is a box to box midfielder where Sangare is a straight DM, like Diawara of Roma. Sangare at £10 million is worth a punt, if Arsenal has spare cash after its primary targets are obtained. Otherwise Arsenal is again lowering standards and expectations.
      Who is the powerful box to box midfielder Arsenal has at the moment and who is the DM once Torreira leaves?The current Arsenal midfield is unbalanced.

  3. Sean says:

    Aouer is a must then as we know nobody else is going to activate the release clause of Partey so we can wait until the last days of the window for Thomas.

    Get Aouer signed as soon as Lucas Leaves this week. We will give them Ozil for free!

    Sangare is a good option if Arsenal are unwilling to splash the cash for Partey. A tall and powerful midfielder, he will act as a shield for our defence. Whatever it is and whoever it is, Arsenal must act fast as time is running out. Also Arsenal must expedite the sales of Torreira, Guendouzi, Socrates and Kola.

  5. Cuppers says:

    Whether Partey comes or not, Sangare at 10 mill mark, should be signed, would do a solid job next to Xhaka, but along side Partey or Soumare would be a proper force to be recognised with, put Aour with them now that’s a statement, when looking at prices Soumare and Sangare bought would still be cheaper than Partey price tag, wages combined not sure. Thought months a ago Sangare would be what we want, cannot believe he’s not been snapped up at this price tag, reading that one journalist said last night he’s the nearest thing to a modern day Viera in terms of style and stats, if he’s half as good, it’s got to be a no brainer.

    All of these rumours are beginning to fry my brain! Will he, won’t he?! Have we, haven’t we?! 18 days to go… and I’ll be a relieved gal once it closes 🤪

    1. SueP says:

      Very true Sue
      Expectations rise, then drop away!
      Frustrating isn’t the word!

      1. Sue says:

        👍 Going to be a very interesting couple of weeks, Sue. To me, nothing will eclipse Auba’s signing, but to have 1, maybe 2 more on board, will certainly keep us smiling!!
        Here’s to a fantastic season, Sue 👌

  7. Unge says:

    If Arsenal has already tabled 40Million for Auror,they will sign him.Going above that,they will pay for Partey release clause because he was the first choice.As the squad stands and the more credible rumors,that to me is the most likely scenario.One of Auror or Partey.The only other possible scenario is if the one coming in is an under 21
