Arsenal insists on including buy obligation before allowing midfielder to leave

Arsenal is currently in discussions with Sevilla regarding a potential loan move for Albert Sambi Lokonga to the Spanish club.

The midfielder is not part of Arsenal’s immediate plans, and he is expected to depart this summer after spending last season on loan at Luton Town.

Arsenal is looking to streamline their squad and offload surplus players as they aim to strengthen with new additions.

Lokonga is among the players Arsenal is keen to move on this summer.

The Belgian midfielder had been striving to impress Mikel Arteta but now seems destined to leave. He is reportedly enthusiastic about a move to Spain, with Sevilla interested in a straightforward loan deal.

However, according to AS, Arsenal is pushing for more favourable terms and is looking to include an obligation for Sevilla to buy Lokonga if certain performance milestones are met during his loan spell in Spain.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Because he has no future at the Emirates, this is the best approach to offload Lokonga.

It makes no sense for him to leave on loan and return to the Emirates, so we have to find a suitor who is committed to signing him permanently afterwards so that we can get rid of him for good.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. This Sambi Lokonga is NEVER a bad player or Midfielder.
    Boy can actually make Straight forward passes and Driving Runs like Yaya Toure.
    Arteta has Not managed him properly.😒😒

    1. He’s good but not good enough for our first team imo. At his age, he needs to be playing or he’ll stagnate and fall away, and that’s not going to happen here.

  2. Just get rid ,another failed Arteta signing ,(sorry it will be edu )from the Arteta 7 on JA .
    Either way not remotely good enough .

  3. If Sevilla are not playing ball, Arsenal should not panic. A mid-to-down-table PL club will buy him. I’m sure of that

  4. Personally, I would say sell him instead of loaning him. I don’t see him getting to a level to be good enough for us or for us to sell at a higher price.
    In October he will be 25 and should be in his peak. Also, if he is not good enough to play for Belgium then can he be good enough to play for us?
