Arsenal eyeing a move for 20-year-old defensive midfielder

Arsenal has been linked with a move for 20-year-old defensive midfielder Ibrahima Bamba.

The youngster is delivering some fine performances on the books of Vitória Guimarães and has attracted the attention of top clubs around Europe.

A move to a bigger club could be on the cards and Arsenal wants to win the race for his signature.

Arsenal is the best place for the world’s top young talents and Bamba could be the next top-rated player that joins them.

A report on Mirror Sport reveals the Gunners are watching him as he develops his skills.

They have been informed that he has a market valuation worth around £26.5million.

The Gunners could negotiate that fee down if their interest in his signature becomes serious before the transfer window reopens.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Bamba is not known by most Arsenal fans, but that doesn’t mean he will not do a good job if we sign him.

However, we have to be sure the youngster can deliver in the Premier League.

We already have Albert Sambi Lokongo struggling to play for us now and it won’t make sense to add another player that will not contribute immediately.

We need to start signing players who have the quality to do well in the league as soon as they arrive at the club.

  1. Knows nothing about this kid, though it could well be a smoke screen leading up to the real deal.

    I suspect lots of agents will be showcasing their clients in an attempt to strengthen their hands in contract negotiations and in moving players to bigger clubs

  2. I think we should nail down contracts for Saka and Saliba before we start looking for new players.

    we have time during the hiatus to put something acceptable on the table for both of them.

    I suggest that these contracts, if in the the region of say $250,000 per week, will show just how committed the Kroenkes are to Arteta’s process.

    Just my two cents worth

    1. agree with u.. club should secure them for atleast 3 years.. all arsenal players should get 100k above to motivate them focus to stay with club..

  3. Is not our money anyway 250k a week for Saka makes sense to me…it’s the club owner’s money…I’ll even suggest pay Saka 600k a week Saliba 500k a week and Martinelli 600k a week… not my money anyway…just monopoly money… other rich dude’s money ha ha. After all Ronaldo is being paid 500 k a week for not performing. We should also sign Haaland from ManC for 200 mil and pay him 2 mil a week…ha ha just monopoly money..ha ha.

    1. Try looking at the accounts some time – Arsenal gets *loans* from the “owner”, only the clubs that are owned by countries or oligarchs get gifts (aka “equity injections”).

      This is Arsenal’s *future* money/revenues, borrowed from KSE at rates and terms set by them.

      Heck, they even re-financed the stadium loan to KSE and the club pays £11m a year in interest on that alone, never mind the small fortune which KSE “lent” the club to buy 100% of the shares.

      It’s a real shame that so few supporters understand what’s going on.

  4. we need a creative midfielder, who can score from the
    chances öde is wasting currently. against Chelsea Martinelli was very wasteful in possession?? Jesus was
    his usual himself, working hard and pressing. but we looked more leggy, hope we are more fresh against Wolves !!

      1. I think I agree with you here. But Arsenal will not do that for Arteta. They will be looking for a way to sign a stranger from another league who will take time to adapt.

  5. I sincerely agree with Faidzal, players already in the EPL doesn’t need to come and start trying to adapt to the pace and fitness level of the league, EPL is a different league entirely, Reuben Neves is a proven player, he’s been on a consistent form so he’s no off and on player!

  6. I agree with the observation on Ode, Arteta needs to really review his position in the team.

  7. G. Jesus needs supporting striker. But some people are saying Eddie Nketiah is there. We need another striker, winger, and DMF. I think with that, we can challenge for any trophy.
