Contrasting reports in Arsenal’s chase for Manor Solomon

There is a mixture of reports coming out surrounding Arsenal’s attempt to sign Manor Solomon from Shakhtar this summer, with one outlet claiming we have tabled an offer.

The winger has enjoyed a thoroughly impressive campaign, including scoring in both Champions League group games against Real Madrid, as well as notching 11 goals in his 35 appearances in all competitions.

The 21 year-old is now linked with a potential move to the Premier League, with Arsenal supposedly of interest, but there are various claims and counter claims.

SportArena states that Arsenal have not only made an official offer for his signature (worth 20 milliion euros), but that Shakhtar have already turned down this initial bid.

Arsenal correspondent Chris Wheatley insists that no bid has been made however, although admits that the club has looked at him previously, and that Solomon himself is keen on a move to the Premier League.

There was also previous reports that the winger had already began househunting in London coming out of Israeli outlet Sport5, but it remains to be seen whether that is true however.

It wouldn’t be too much of a shock if we had increased our interest in Solomon after missing out on Emi Buendia’s signature this week, with the Argentine having agreed a deal to join Aston Villa instead.

    I say we buy this guy. looks pretty much a poor man’s hazard. strong, fast, decent goal record, big game player, can beat his man, all he need’s motivation and most importantly he will have a resale value at 21..get him before wolves do, he is their kind of player🤔

    Manor Solomon is a good player, but maybe there is a better option. Charles Watts is talking about Arsenal having an interest in Nabil Fekir who is a top player and puts Emi Buendia to grass. We once wanted Fekir badly. He is a real playmaker, and plays a very mobile forward moving game. Not a sideways wallah. I hope this is real news and not hype.

    I’ll never forget Buendia ditching Arsenal to go to Villa. I’ll never live this down. Everywhere I go I walk with my head hanging low, feel like everyone knows I’m an Arsenal fan. The shame….

      Buendia didn’t ditch Arsenal to go to Villa, they just offered Norwich a fee arrangement that suited them better than our offer. I doubt Buendia never even spoke to the two clubs.

        👍 Fact, it was the structuring of the payment. Another shiny winger, not what Arsenal need, given scarce funds.

      Come off it man! Arsenal is not that important.

      Shame over a futbol team, let alone a
      Championship player that is unproven @ the
      EPL level? Even if Messi chose Aston Villa over
      Arsenal I wouldnt lose that much sleep.

      Read a book, learn an instrument. Futbol
      IMWO really isnt worth basing your life
      happiness on.
