Arsenal launch enquiry to sign former target from Barcelona

Arsenal are claimed to have enquired about the availability of Barcelona’s Memphis Depay this summer, with a forward amongst our priorities for the coming window.

The Gunners currently have just two options for the central striker role, with both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both into the final months of their contracts, which will make strengthening in that position a matter of urgency.

There is the possibility that we could still extend the contracts of one or both, but you would still assume that we would need to bolster that area of our line-up regardless.

While we have been linked with numerous options for the role ahead of the coming window, we are now claimed to have made an enquiry about the availability of Barcelona’s Depay, reports.

The Dutch forward may not have the best memories of the Premier League, having failed to impress at Manchester United previously, but we were believed to have also been in the market for his signature prior to his move to Old Trafford, and you would imagine that he is much more of a talent at this point in his career, and the the raw and exciting youngster that he was back then.

I think Depay would be a risky signing, and much prefer the idea of others coming to the club instead. The doubt about whether he will be able to put his previous time in England behind him, and whether he could actually prove to be suited to the rigours of the PL remain.

I would happily be proved wrong, but I feel like it wouldn’t be a risk that I would take given the option.

Do you think Depay would me a risky signing or do you think he would be great?

  1. just imagine if we pursued the very player who functionally got benched following the arrival of Auba…when will this race to mediocrity ever end

      1. based on our largely absent owner, I’m not convinced that things would drastically change even if Arteta is removed from the equation, although I wouldn’t mind finding out

  2. All these are rumours, we will get to know our real transfer targets from next week.

    For me champions league or not, players are still attracted to arsenal…however we might just have to offer more salary to beat off champions league teams

    Nunez and Osimhen are ideal but very expensive combo.

    Jesus and Dybala makes sense as well

  3. Another rumour that doesn’t ring true and I really do not understand why some supporters believe this stuff, gullible or what!

    1. Arsenal problem is management. The owners know what to do but are refusing. We ll not win any major trophy up until the right thing is done.

  4. Ignore these! Between now and the close of the summer transfer window we’re going to “linked” to around at least a thousand different players, with 99.99% of these rumours being completely fake…a bit like Biden’s Twitter followers!

    I can tell you now, the usual Arsenal rumours will just be rehashed again for this summer, like: Draxler, Umtiti, etc.

      1. Oh yeah Benzema, sloppy from me!! I remember seeing yet another Benzema rumour just after we had spent around 50 million on Laca!

  5. Absolute awful player no thank you would rather take a punt at Kamada from Frankfurt at least he knows how to run from midfield and between the lines pulling defences and making space for other players

  6. I’d love to know the fee that Barca would be asking for him, considering that they got him in a free a year ago!!

    1. I don’t know if says anything about the man himself?he ran his contract out,knowing full well that Lyon were desperate for money.i mean the club which relaunched his career.
