Arsenal turns attention to Real Madrid star after finding Rice agreement

Arsenal is said to be preparing for the arrival of a second midfielder to their squad, following the imminent signing of Declan Rice.

The Gunners are reportedly close to securing Rice’s signature for a new record fee, with an official announcement expected in the coming days. This addition is seen as a significant boost to Mikel Arteta’s squad, further strengthening their midfield options.

However, according to a report from The Sun, Arteta is still keen to bring in another midfielder and has identified Real Madrid’s Aurelien Tchouameni as a target.

Tchouameni, who established himself as one of Europe’s finest midfielders, joined Madrid last season. Arsenal is now interested in acquiring his services for a transfer fee.

The report suggests that should the Gunners complete the signing of Rice and fail to secure other midfield targets, such as Romeo Lavia, they will turn their attention to pursuing Tchouameni as an alternative option.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tchouameni is one of the finest young midfielders in La Liga and it would be a huge coup to add him to our group, but that is very unlikely.

The midfielder plays for Madrid, one of the biggest clubs in the world and they could ask us to pay more than we paid for Rice before they will allow him to leave them.

  1. Arsenal needs to add another deep laying midfielder, one which is young Athletic and highly technical.

    Real Madrid talents especially in midfield is exceptional, Its actually off the charts, they have so many midfielders and with Bellingham joining surely one or two will have to go.

    I like Tchouameni but he wont come cheap.

  2. If we are addressing our squad depth why are we not keeping Xhaka and Partey?
    Even if we buy two new midfielders we risk losing experience plus the fct that even Rice might require adaptation time to the Arsenal style.

  3. Haha good one
    He was one of Europes finest midfielders last season and Madrid want to sell him ,makes perfect sense ,Madrid have probably the most potent midfield in the world or soon will have ,and he will be part of it .
    Our transfer dealings in midfield have been sorted ,apart from timber whos apparently close I think all of are transfers will be done there after .

    1. We have 2 world class strikers in Saka and Martenili… This is not our biggest need.

  4. I agree with this idea , If not the midfield is empty and has no depth to compete with the big teams and long journey .
    Keep the 2 players or buy another 2 midfielders. . Buying one expensive player doesn`t make any sense or change any thing.
    Rice is new for Arsenal system , he needs some time to adopt .

    1. Exactly, keep our existing players and focus on getting a top striker, then our job is complete. Balagun looks quite decent as an option if we have to strengthen our midfield first. But pulling this stunt off Real won’t be cheap.

  5. Tchouameni might just be the one posting for a move because he understands he’s been replaced by Bellingham. I’d like to see how this one plays out, an absolute coup if we get him.
