Arsenal targeting Premier League midfielder who did not report for training

Arsenal continues to bolster their squad and could add a new midfielder to their group this month.

Mikel Arteta’s side remains one of the top sides in European football now and has been atop the EPL table for much of the campaign.

The Gunners know an injury to a key player could derail their season and have bolstered their defence and attack in the last few weeks.

More signings could join them at the Emirates and a report in The Sun reveals they want Everton’s Amadou Onana.

The midfielder has been a shining light in the struggling Toffees side and could now step up to a top club.

Arsenal is looking to make a bid for him and the report adds the 21-year-old missed the latest Everton training in what could be an attempt to leave the Toffees.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Onana has been superb this term and the Belgian could be an upgrade to Albert Sambi Lokonga at the Emirates.

We have an established midfield, but he could become the man that brings more wins off the bench when he is introduced into matches.

However, he will not come cheap, so we must be prepared to add him to our squad for some good money.

  1. Everton are very unlikely to consider an offer for one of the few players who have performed well this season, when they are in danger of going down and the fact that Anthony Gordon could well be on his way to Newcastle.However,in view of the injury to Elneny, an approach to take Doucoure on loan could be worth pursuing.The midfielder apparently fell out with Lampard before he was sacked and could be “available”.Doucoure is certainly an upgrade on Elneny imo and has boundless energy and drive .He can operate as a DM or a B to B operator.As temporary cover he could be a very decent acquisition.

    1. Everton will consider Onana bids 100%. Better take the 50 mil now than take a hit if they go down in the summer. The cost of keeping him would be too much for Everton if their gamble doesn’t pay off. Theyve already taken a hit on Gordon who should’ve gone to Chelsea for 60 mil last summer. Onana and Gordon will be sold if the right offer comes in.

        1. Would you rather have SL slot in
          to cover if and more lkely when
          TP gets injured? We witnessed
          that debacle against Manure and
          in EL fixtures. I still rate the young
          Belgian but he is not a DM, never
          will be.

          Onana is very talented, has EPL
          experience and wouldn’t mind
          deputizing for TP in the short
          term. He’s good enough to
          feature in all EL, Cup games and
          home EPL fixtures where Arsenal
          are heavy favorites.

          Considering what’s @ stake the
          rest of the season 50M for Onana
          is a no brainer IMWO

    2. Yes good point Grandad, especially with a week to go in the transfer window.

      Also – buying players from failing clubs never seems a good idea to me. That may be harsh, but I always feel that those clubs are failing for a reason.

      1. Onana has been the lone bright
        spot in a very poor Everton
        squad. This is a case IMWO that
        the Belgian is wasting his talents
        away @ the Merseyside club.

        If you happened to watch any of
        Belgium’s WC games, Onana was
        one of a disappointing sides best
        players and played extensively for
        Robert Martinez’s squad.

        He would be a good signing to fill
        a NECESSARY need.

  2. Had seen it somewhere that he’s not intrested in learning Everton in this transfer window.
    Onana is a destroyer type player that can hold his own, still think he has some way to go,

    But if Doucoure fell out with Lampard and Frank is now gone wouldn’t that change the whole dynamics for Discourse.

    The unavailability of Eleney to a long term injury, will significantly influence our decisions on bringing in Partey cover though up to two maybe neccessary in my opinion.

  3. That’s the primary number that our club has to be focused on before the Window closes on 31st this month. We really need a seriously Party’s replacement because with time he also needs to rest,so a perfect replacement will do the team better.
