European powerhouses could scupper Arsenal’s plans for Frenchman

Arsenal is serious about signing Eduardo Camavinga this summer, but they face competition from two European powerhouses.

The Gunners are still rebuilding their team and will bolster their options in the summer.

Camavinga is one of the players that they have thought about signing and the 18-year-old would represent a perfect long-term investment for them.

He broke into the Rennes team at 16 and has already played for the senior France national team.

Several top European teams are paying attention to his development with his current team tipped to sell him in the summer.

This is because he has a year left on his current deal and they risk losing him for nothing if they don’t sell him at the next opportunity.

Marca says Arsenal is keen to sign him, but so are Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Both European heavyweights have the prestige of Champions League football to offer him.

Arsenal, however, can guarantee him playing time, which is important to his current development.

The Gunners will need to do a lot of convincing to get the deal done if they can meet Rennes’ asking price.

They will be in a better position if they secure Europa League football, but that would be tough to achieve.

    Can we really guarantee him playing time with limited competitions we are in?

    Im guessing EPL + FA Cup would be our strongest 11 majority of the time with youngsters playing league cup.

    In his 48 games he has 1 goal and 2 assists. Yes he’s very young but so is Saka and his stats look better and in the EPL vs French Ligue. We need a goal scoring mid, it’s one element we really miss.

    Personally I hope we go all out for Bissouma. He has shown what he can do in the PL, and we desperately need known quantities to come in and deliver, especially in the midfield.

      Should have signed Doucoure @Durand before Everton signed him up ,he’s a lvl above Bissouma IMO and if are after Bissouma we will probably get bent over trying to sign him if we are actually after him .

    We already have an unbalanced team full of left-footed midfielders.

    We don’t need another one.

    Just sign BISSOUMA (40M) and AOUAR / SAINT-MAXIMIN(50M) for a combined total of £90m.

    Then sell Holding (10m), Gabriel (20m – Mari is better and you can’t have 2 left-footed center backs ), Torreira (20m) Guendouzi (15m), Xhaka (free!!!), M-Niles (15m) Nketiah (10m) >>>> combined total = 90m

    NET SPEND = £0M

    Bring back MAVROPANOS, SALIBA, KOLASINAC and WILLOCK.
