Arsenal monitoring trio ahead of busy summer

Arsenal are believed to be interested in Lyon’s Moussa Dembele, Houssem Aouar and Joachim Anderson, according to The Telegraph.

Aouar’s interest is likely to be revived this summer, after his market value reportedly dropped significantly.

Dembele who is currently in the books of Spanish club Atletico Madrid, has found life difficult in Spain. Form and fitness issues have resulted in zero goal returns since his move in January.

Thus, Diego Simeone would be reluctant to make the 24-year-old stint permanent at Wanda Metropolitano next year.

That’s where Arsenal come in. The Gunners are likely to cash in on Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah, who only have a year left on their current deals.

The North London outfit are believed to be making the biggest summer overhaul of their squad in decades, and thus would also like to bring in Dembele’s teammate at Lyon Joachim Anderson.

After Fulham’s relegation was confirmed late on Monday night, they will unlikely make a move for the Danish defender.

While Arsenal are believed to be keen on replacing David Luiz with a more experienced head like Anderson.

Dembele and Anderson are thought to be valued around £25 million each ahead of the summer. While, Houssem Aouar, who Arsenal repeatedly tried to purchase last summer, is available around the price tag of £30 million.

Those players coincidentally play in the positions Arsenal are looking to strengthen at in the upcoming show window.

Given their talent, a financial outlay of around £80 million for the trio is not huge with any stretch of imagination.

    All are average players

      Too good for our below average team?

  2. Malik Itopa Kelvin says:

    It is not when this two: arteta and kroenke are here, their wouldn’t be changes. pls , these two should be out now.

  3. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

    Demble is out of form and not suitable to Arsenal style.
    Aouar, is having attitude issues with Lyon and struggling against small teams and suffered multiple injury setbacks.
    There is no meaning to bring Anderson as we have a lot of centerbacks, unless we are able to cash back on what we havevand bring him.
    Underwhelming to ge honest.

    “Underwhelming” is how I feel about that trio as well Ba. There’s also the added problem that a lot of players bought in from the French league take time to settle, add that to what we have already and it doesn’t fill me with confidence!

    1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

      Yes Grantygooner, in French league, hobestly there are like 3 or 4 big teams, and the rest of the are not comparable to PL level.
      In PL there are probably 3 or 4 struggling teams, the rest gives a fight.
      There are talents in the Ligue 1 but not ones who are risk free or that should break the bank.

    considering our stickers are failing to score goals why would we want to sign another one who has not scored this year!!! give Balagon his chance .

    if these rumours are true then i feel that in the premier league next season we will be playing to survive and not playing to compete.these below average players are exactly what we dont want or need.i can see a long road ahead of us trying to survive in the premier league, possibly have one or two good results in one of the cups.well at least we have our memories .

  7. Atangana says:

    It’s so senseless to sign players that are just average in a weak French league. Why not look in the chamionship? Buendia is ideal. And there is Daka as well both with average fees.
