Arsenal could pay more for €50M-rated player if they wait until the summer

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes and they could land the exciting Brazilian this month.

Lyon knows they have an outstanding player on their hands and they are keen to make as much money from his sale.

Todofichajes says the Frenchmen would demand €50M if Arsenal wants to sign him this month.

That fee makes a move to the Emirates unlikely, but things would not necessarily get better for the Gunners at the end of this season.

The report says Lyon intends to give the midfielder a new deal and that should happen if he doesn’t leave the club this month.

His new deal will last until 2026 and would give them a stronger position to negotiate a summer deal, meaning Arsenal faces paying more for his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Adding a new midfielder to our team this month would give us more squad depth and Guimaraes has looked like a top player at Lyon.

However, spending as much as €50M for a position we already have good options might not be such a pleasant idea.

Arsenal would need to add at least one attacker to the team in the summer, and they would cost a lot of money.

    Better and cheaper options:

    Aurelien Tcouhameni
    Joao Palhinha

    if the club are serious about competing for top 4 this season and titles in the future, this guy is a must buy imo.

    Lokonga is not ready by a long shot, he’s weak on the ball, slow to make a decision which gets hm closed down quickly, poor passer and not tough enough in a tackle – im not saying he wont come good but to me, we cant wait 2-3 seasons for him to progress, we need quality and we need it now.

    Him and Partey will be a great partnership imo

    Very talented midfielder as is the young DM from Monaco, who’s name I can never spell.As for Lokonga, he should never have been played as our main DM last night.He is a cultured midfielder but he will never be a ball winner.

      The more I think about it the more I think Arteta missed an opportunity to see what Chambers could do at DM last night and release Lokonga a further upfield Ah well, I’m as much of an armchair manager as anyone.

      I do think we will see a much improved Lokonga playing with Xhaka later this week..

    Good solid player. Arsenal paid £50 million for a CB with Saliba already on the books, so why not.

    He can control the midfield, reads the game well, and can offer offense as well as defense.

    We don’t “need” any more players this season.
    Top 6 is the goal this season and we are achieving that with what we have. We have so many players we have to sort out like 27m Torreira and 27mill Saliba, 7m Guendouzie, Mavropanos, Bellerin, Niles, Nelson all on loan. Cedric, Elneny, Chambers, Mari, Kolasinac, Nketiah need to go. 12 players who are performing badly and the answer apparently is to spend 50mill on a player with one season of European football in a mid table Ligue 1 side. Like signing 50m Lacazette was the answer in 2017, signing 60m Auba was the answer in 2018 and signing 72m Pepe was the answer in 2019. So now signing 50m Guimaraes is the answer in 2022. Really? Our best signings are Saka free, ESR free and Martinelli 7m. Look at the academy or other academies. 10m should be the maximum fee we pay in the future.
