Arsenal allowed Brighton to sign their 20-year-old target for just £7million

Arsenal were admirers of Abdallah Sima as the 20-year-old delivered some impressive performances for Czech Republic club, Slavia Prague.

The attacker was in stunning form for the Czech first division side and he scored 11 goals in 24 league matches for them last season.

He was also in stunning form for them in Europe and he even earned comparisons with Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry, because he plays on the wing and cuts in to score.

Arsenal spent much of their summer budget signing younger players after they landed the likes of Martin Odegaard, Nuno Tavares and Ben White and Sima would have been a fine addition to their squad as well.

However, the Gunners have missed out on signing him to Premier League rivals, Brighton.

The Sun says the Seagulls have signed him and sent him out immediately on loan to Stoke City.

He would spend the rest of the season with the Potters to continue his development.

One of his highlights of last season was scoring a stunning goal to eliminate Leicester City from the Europa League.

He is a player who can develop into one of the most sought-after in England and the Gunners might regret not getting him in while they could.

    So I guess “Arsenal were beaten to another transfer target”. Heard that one a few times lately!

      @Yossarian

        Yeah!

      Yossarian, all missing all these targets means is that Arsenal are not very good at darts 🎯, as well as football. ⚽

      Siamois, I will say it again! MA will sell or loan all the good players before he gets the sack. I pity the next manager.

    2. Kuzma1 says:

      Guendouzi is a fiery naturally gifted player. It’s a crime that Arteta’s management style could not embrace and mold him into a star for Arsenal.
      My hope is that Arsenal somehow bring Guendouzi back in to play, but under a new and better manager.

        Dear ol Guendo couldn’t stick in Germany either. Looks he is best in France

      2. Ozziegunner says:

        Kuzmal, Marseille has an option to buy for £9 million, so not much chance of Guendouzi returning if he has a good season.
