Arsenal set to earn a transfer windfall from an unlikely source

Arsenal has been looking for money to complete some of their summer business and they are about to get a little help that they may not have expected.

101Greatgoals is reporting that the Gunners are in line to earn a windfall from the likely transfer of their former academy player, Chuba Akpom.

The Englishman is set to make a return to English football after Middleborough had a 3 million euros bid for his signature accepted by Greek side PAOK.

The forward has been on the books of the former Greek Champions since 2018, and his fine showing for them has earned him a return to the English Championship.

It claims that should he make the move, Arsenal will be entitled to 40% of the fee, which might be added to Mikel Arteta’s transfer budget.

Arsenal has had a busy transfer window, adding the likes of Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes to their starting XI already.

They still want to add a midfielder and they need all the money that they can get to sign one.

Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar have been mentioned as possible targets, both players will cost a fortune, but the fee realised from Akpom’s transfer can help.

    In my view Partey is like the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle that will add steal to our back line.
    Get him in and for once we may start to dream big again. Without that steal that protect our back line and bring stability to our midfield we’ll continue to concede cheap goals. Get him and let go of Torerra and Guendouzi.

      The best midfielder choice for the gunner is Said Benrahma hope Arteta will sign him before transfer close.

    40% of 3m euros works out at just over £1,000,000. 1 million…. nothing even close to a ‘windfall’ for a club like AFC but good job on the clickbait headline.

      Haha I was going to say the same thing. “Windfall” yeah right. Kroneke wouldn’t even stop to pick that up if it feel out of his pocket.

        @MickGunner
        Stan is so cheap, he’d stop to pick up a fiver, if it fell out of his pocket. He might just try and pocket that 1 mil “windfall”…IJS

      This is positive as at least Arsenal had a sell on clause for Chuba Akpom. Every little bit helps.

    Tbh, I’m surprised they put a sell-on clause on him… never rated him I’m afraid. But as Tesco says -.and no I don’t mean Tierney this time 😆 – every little helps!!
    Keep up with the clauses 🙏

    Sell Guendouzi, Socrates, Torreira, Mustafi/Chambers and Kola to make up the funds for either Partey or Aouar or both.

    1. Okim Francis says:

      Please,sell all the unwanted players and get the right ones.

    saying sell them is the easy part thats what Edu and co have been tryiing to do but its proven difficult as the market is rough because of covid and the players dont seem to be attracting solid bids
