Arsenal tipped to watch these two players at the African Nations

Arsenal has a number of players competing at AFCON that gets underway in Cameroon this weekend.

The Gunners will watch the competition to see their players in action for their various countries.

But that is not the only reason they would have an eye on the African continental showpiece, with a new report claiming they have transfer targets representing their nations in the competition as well.

Standard Sports say Mikel Arteta’s side has an interest in Youssef En-Nesyri of Sevilla and Franck Kessie of AC Milan.

The former is a striker who has been eyed by Arsenal to reinforce their attack at the end of this season.

The latter is a midfielder with an expiring contract who has been tipped to make a move to England.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Competitions like AFCON give clubs the chance to discover new talents.

Arsenal is rebuilding their team, so they would be interested in new players from the continent.

En-Nesyri and Kessie might not be the only players who get their attention in the competition, eventually.

However, the Gunners could also be turned off by the timing of the event because it means it guarantees them losing key players whenever the competition comes around.

  1. As long as we bring in a goal scorer to replace Auba when he goes this window plus gives the new ST a chance to adapt until the summer with Laca here until at least then.

    Partey & Elneny AFCON, AMN is away to Rome & Xhaka/Lokonga only recognised midfielders in the squad so we must buy a holding midfielder.

    Get these 2 signings sorted and we will have a great chance at Top4.

    Reading Mari & Chambers are also up for sale with Auba, Elneny, Eddie & Kola. Come the summer Leno, Hector, Lucas,Matteo, Dino & Pepe could all be gone too.

    Alot of work to be done behind the scenes this window and especially come the summer if we finish in the Top4.

  2. Nesyri is a great striker, has all the qualities of a CF. Kesy would be another fantastic signing but I think he is also wanted by Liverpool and the Spuds. Anyway signing a quality DM is very important for Arsenal.
