Arsenal clear favourites to sign coveted midfielder

Arsenal are the favourites with the bookmakers to sign Sheffield United’s Sander Berge this summer.

The Norwegian midfielder has been a standout performer for the Blades this season, and has shown that he is deserving of retaining a place in the Premier League, something his current team have been unable to achieve.

With United set to drop into the Championship, Berge is expected to leave the club in the coming window, with Arsenal amongst those most strongly linked with his signature.

SkyBet have now opened up a market on where the 23 year-old will be playing come the close of the upcoming transfer window, with TheStar naming us as the 2/1 (3.0) favourite to sign him, ahead of Serie A giants AC Milan.

Dani Ceballos is expected to leave the club this summer at the end of his loan deal, which will surely open the door for a new arrival.

The Gunners spent a whopping amount to bring Thomas Partey to the club last summer, but a number of injuries has hampered his campaign, and bringing in another strong midfielder has to be a priority this summer.

Would Berge be the ideal partner in the centre for Partey?

    Berge is terribly average. Doesn’t even shine for Sheffield.

    The only midfielder we need to sign is bissouma, he is the ideal partner for partey, if not bissouma, i would rather we go for buendia.

    1. JanV says:

      I would welcome the idea of Bissouma. I think in partnership with Partey we would be formidable in midfield.

      Buendia is more of an attacking player and not really a Partey partner I would think.

      That is how so many here were craving for Party. How does he turn out. It is not like he was a bad player but so many factors didn’t make me fancy him at the time. One was his age (28) as an African player burn and stated his career in Ghana. As an African myself I know we lied a lot about our players’s age. To me Party is in late 30s. The other is how we play under Arteta. No doubt he has made so many good and above average players looked mediocre. How are we sure is not going to repeat what we saw with Party with this guy. I’m not excited with any prospectus players coming I would rather we give chances to our academy players and see what we can achieve with them before throwing money around with Arteta as the coach.

    This would be a massive mistake. The guy missed 93 days last season and needed surgery. Missed 55 days with a calf injury in 2019. Missed 60 days with a “fitness” issue in 2017/2018 and again missed 143 days 2017/2018 with a torn muscle, and missed a further 75 days in 2016/2017.

    We have seem to have injury curse as it is, do we really need to buy players who bring their own injury problems even before they arrive?

    1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

      Yes, thank you and reportedly not cheap as well.
      There are many less risk signings.

  4. Ferdinand says:

    My HEART & SOUL is with Yves Bissouma. Period

  5. Grandad says:

    More pie in the sky.

  6. Gashman says:

    As for berge , he is not a premiership player. He’s level is a championship player. Arsenal should not waste money on berge . Rather bring back willock to fill that midfield position. As for berge i have serious doubts

  7. Mr Hamzo says:

    I personally recommend bisouma but African cup of Nation is January and all our defensive midfield players would represent their countries that would leave us very open

  8. Oba says:

    If arsenal will go for him no problem, but I will like them to buy Jack Grealish as our attacking midfielder, I don’t want any loan players that cannot nail a starting spot in their parent team. Also we need a good back up for Partey because Nations Cup is coming up during next season, also we need to go for Jesse lingard, so that we can play another formation with lingard and another striker upfront. Arsenal should spend that money to bring in Jack Grealish, Jesse lingard and a backup for partey also berge that they want to buy. They can move Rowe to left hand attacking side

  9. J wenger says:

    Betge is the kind of midfielder we don’t have since we couldn’t give torera chance I think we need inforcer someone like kovacic of Chelsea
    A player that has the strength to run you not a slow man like party again
