Arsenal leading the race for one of their former players

Arsenal’s interest in Ismael Bennacer is serious, and a new report on Tuttomercatoweb reveals they are leading the race for his signature.

The midfielder left the Emirates as a youth team player in 2017 and moved to Empoli in Italy, where he impressed and earned a move to AC Milan.

His deal at the Serie A side expires in 18 months, and they are struggling to get him to sign an extension, opening the door for him to leave.

Arsenal wants new midfielders, and reports have linked them with a move for the likes of Douglas Luiz, Youri Tielemans and Manuel Locatelli in the past.

However, it seems Bennacer is the man they have turned their attention towards, and the report reveals they expect to seal a move for him as soon as possible.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Bennacer is clearly one that got away from us and we must do our best to bring him back.

The Algerian has improved greatly since he left the Emirates and will be the best backup to Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey.

Even though his deal expires at the end of next season, Milan will still want a lot of money from us before sanctioning a move away.

  1. Surely this area on the pitch must be addressed in the winter as an injury to Partey would inflict a serious dent to our title ambitions and league position.

    With the reported war chest to the tune of £105 mil according to Italian outlet Calciomercato, published by Football London on the 16th of December,
    If all this report be true , though still short for three major signings, it could still goes a long way in acquiring players like Ismeal Bannacer , Musah or Danilo..
    With the striker and mystery winger position still to be address.

  2. One question!does the writer consider Zaha an Ivorian?Matt Cash Polish?Tariq Lamptey Ghanaian? I’m only asking because Bennacer is French born and raised like say Zidane,Benzema…he even represented France at youth levels.the only difference being that he decided to represent Algeria at senior level.
