Arsenal signing Moussa Diaby would be the icing on the cake

There has been much talk about Arsenal’s interest in a ‘mystery winger’, and with still three weeks to go in the transfer window it could be anybody. But I definitely would be very excited if it proves to be the Bayern Leverkusen star Moussa Diaby, as suggested by Football.Insider this morning.

They are reporting that Arsenal have told Leverkusen of their interest and that Stan Kroenke has given his permission to go ahead with the deal if possible. They wrote: Arsenal are working on a sensational late-window deal for Bayer Leverkusen attacker Moussa Diaby, sources have told Football Insider.

The London giants’ owner Stan Kroenke has given the green light to the club pursuing Diaby ahead of the 31 August cut-off.

Arsenal have registered their interest in the France international, 23, as they look to seal a deal they believe will “complete” their attack.

It is believed Leverkusen value Diaby at the £60million mark.

There is no doubt that Arsenal will likely need a third striker if we are to compete on all fronts this season as an injury to Nketiah or Gabriel Jesus could leave us very short in the goalscoring department, and the fact that Diaby can play on the wing or as Number Nine would be perfect for us. It is also extremely promising that he managed 17 goals and 14 assists in the Bundesliga last season from 42 appearances and could even make Jesus a backup if he keeps up those numbers.

I thought it certain that Arteta would be looking for a new frontman when he allowed Folarin Balogun to go out on loan, so I am really hopeful that this “exclusive” is true…

  1. Hope so as well however, we also need a midfielder who has grit and can score goals. Odegaard is weak.

  2. Diaby sounds impressive, but are we going to pay £60 mil for him knowing he’s not premier league proven and we didn’t think premier league proven Raphinha value that.

    There is a 6ft 4in right winger that plays for Santos in Brazil that is powerful and quick, his name is Lucas Barbosa, maybe he could do the trick

  3. Highly unlikely signing
    I’m sceptical about signing from other league for high price
    Is he better than Pepe ”

  4. At the risk of sounding like GAI,we need a different type of striker to Jesus and who will bring an aerial threat, hold up play..a Giroud like type of player, only younger & quicker.

    1. Any thoughts on Miteovic as that player? 43 goals last season and good in the air?

      Could be Arsnals Jota !

  5. The self named term “football insider” is doubtless so called to fool any naive fans into thinking this conceited organisation knows what it is talking about.

    Not being a naive halfwit but knowing how commercial life works, I dismiss it as just another false rumour.

    I do believe we WILL make one more major signing this month however , but NOT this one!

  6. As much as I like Nicole Pepe l think we should sell him to help bank roll the purchase of James Maddison and then if Stan Kroenke is serious about buying Moussa Diaby we’ll definitely have one of the best front line’s in the Premier League!!!!!!!!⚽⚽⚽🥅🥅🥅🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏅👑❤️

  7. I prefer zaha coz of his premier league experience and then sign up tielimans,then we’re good to go 👍✅

  8. Spurs looks solid and Chelsea were lucky to get a win. Though Arsenal looks very good but Spurs looks favourite for 3rd . That leaves us with one spot to compete with Chelsea and United . I think we should make a team that can challenge Spurs for 3rd . We should aim for 3rd . Worst case we get the 4th spot
