‘First contacts’ – Transfer insider names Arsenal as leading race for target

Arsenal are leading the race to sign Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski after making the first contact with his representatives.

The Swedish international was in top form this evening, in helping the Old Lady to victory over Salernitana, interchanging and connecting well with Paulo Dybala in attack, including teeing up the Argentine for the opening goal.

Kulu is believed to be available for transfer however, with Juve believed to be keen on boosting their transfer budget, and Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Arsenal are at the forefront of proceedings having made contact with his team first.

His supposed asking price seems extremely fair for such a talent who retains the potential to be amongst the world’s best, but a January move would seem a risk. He hasn’t showed the level of consistency in Black & White as you would have expected, although he has been limited to the bench mostly.

I’m not sure I would be looking at Kulusevski as somebody who would be expected to immediately improve our starting line-up and help us push for a top four finish, but I certainly believe he would be a great signing in the long-run if we could make it happen.

    Why are Arsenal always be rumoured with players who are failing at either Juventus or Barcelona?

    Kulusevski is not a failure, he is playing well both for Juventus and Sweden. He is being put in the market more for financial reasons. If he is available and ready to come to Arsenal, we must go in for him, a real talent who will help the team get into the top 4.

    If Mikel wants him, then he must be be a top top player.Mikel does not waste time and money on mediocrity, cheap charlies or big ego primma donnas.

    Another left footer who usually plays on the right side of the pitch and we already have Saka and Pepe in that category.I watched Sweden recently and he impressed me more than the much vaunted Issac who is apparently being chased by a host of top European sides.Kulusevski is only 21 and cannot be classed as a “failure” as suggested by someone who has obviously little knowledge of the player.If Arsenal are genuinely interested in the Swede, Pepe will have to go, which is easier said than done.

    I love this guy, strong , quick feet and fast, these are the kind of AMs we need,

    Pepe can be sold or loaned out, if does well, means he’s value increases as well .

  6. gunnerforlife says:

    Agree totally with you Grandad.

  7. RSH says:

    Pepe out Kuli in is 100% an upgrade. Problem of course is getting the former out of the club. Also, I expect a quiet January, and this is probably a summer move.
