Arsenal face serious competition from Newcastle for 13 goals in 17 games attacker

Arsenal is battling Newcastle United for the signature of Marcus Thuram after his good first half of the season.

The son of Lilian Thuram has developed into a lethal goalscorer at Borussia Monchengladbach and could leave them at the end of this season.

His current deal expires then and the Germans have unsuccessfully tried to get him on a new one.

It seems the attacker wants to leave, which gives Arsenal a chance to sign him.

However, The Sun insists the interest from Newcastle United is strong and the Magpies could even pay a small fee to sign him in January.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have a strong attack, but squad depth is a problem for us now and we must address it while we can.

Thuram will give us a new edge in attack and his goalscoring form has been superb this season.

But waiting until the summer to sign him for free is risky, so we have to make a January plan for him and agree to pay Gladbach a small fee to secure his signature early.

As we progress, the best Christmas gift we can get is for our players to return from the World Cup injury-free and in fine form.

  1. As the two teams that seem to be the most in ascendancy at the moment, Newcastle will be a thorn in Arsenal’s side in the transfer market as both teams seem to be going after very similar players and Newcastle are moneybags now. Thuram sounds good. His dad was a very good France international so he’s got a great background in that sense.

    1. Yes, Newcastle are likely to be able to attract players who we might otherwise wish to have come to us . That is what endless money available can do to a club, sadly!

  2. Arsenal should put in an early bid for Thuram who will come in to offload the weight carried by Gabriel Jesus.
