Galatasaray makes a late move to sign Arsenal midfielder

Galatasaray is making a late bid to add Arsenal midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga to their squad.

The Belgian has been told he can leave and several clubs have shown an interest in his signature for much of the last few months.

However, he remains at Arsenal, with hours to go before the transfer window closes.

Gala is now looking to seal the deal and take him on loan for the rest of this campaign, Galatasaray Haber reveals on Twitter.

The Belgian and Arsenal player should be happy about this opportunity and would be eager to ensure he leaves.

Just Arsenal Opinion

This could be Lokonga’s last chance to leave the club this summer and we need to do our best to ensure he does depart.

The midfielder has never impressed enough to show he can perform at this level and it is still baffling that we added him to our squad for a fee.

Now is not the time to worry about that decision, we just need to offload him and ensure that we trim down our large squad.

Even if it requires us to pay some of his wages, we must not allow this chance to offload Lokonga to pass by.

  1. We are approaching the last throw of the dice, where players will unsettles by rumors, panic buy will chips in, one and two managers will be glancing nervously over their shoulders.

    Arsenal would be better place having the Seagulls opt for Lokonga as opposed to Smith Rowe.
    The problem is Brighton is shrewd in their business dealing and recognizes instant returns on investment if they could lay their hands on SmithRowe.

  2. If Arsenal does offload Sambi this summer as they ought to do to any club side that want him. But on no any account should they pay part of his Arsenal wages to facilitators his offloading to the club side that want him. Be it on a loan move or sale. Rather, if it is Galatasaray FC that finally want to buy or loan loan from Arsenal today or tomorrow before the summer transfer window shuts. Arsenal should not consent to any paying part of his Arsenal wages with Gala’. But if they don’t agree, Arsenal should withdraw from the negotiations and find another club to take Sambi off their hands on loan or buy him and at their own terms of not having to pay part of his Arsenal wages before he will be signed by the buying or loan club..

    1. This is correct but, time is running out. We better let him go under the condition of paying part of his salary,than all of it and still not play him.

  3. It’s been such a difficult task shipping out unwanted players from Arsenal, not only in this summer, but even before. Is that symptomatic of a faulty recruitment process in the club? Could well be.
    Even the likes of Lokonga and Tavares who are recent acquisitions have woefully failed to make the mark.
    Harvertz is another high profile flop loading.
    Arsenal really need to rejig their scouting and recruitment strategy to avoid this plethora of failed signings.

    1. Plethora of failed signings? Really?!

      You forget Saliba, Partey, Gabriel, Odegaard, White, Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Jesus, Zinchenko, Vieira, Kiwior, Trossard, and Rice, Timber, and Raya?
      Now that is a plethora of signings … and none of them have failed!

      Our scouting and recruitment strategy is fine. There are mis-steps with signings at every club. It will always happen that a player doesnt work out … but our club is doing a fine job right now. Most of the deadwood MA and Edu have struggled to get rid off were signed before Arteta became our manager.

      And … you have written off Havertz already … even though he has played in just 3 games for the club … Let him have a season, at least FFS!

  4. How many failures do the likes of Liverpool and City have? Those are the teams to emulate.
    I didn’t write Havertz off, I only said he’s a failure loading. And if you don’t see the signs in his game so far then I wonder. Remember the hefty £65m lavished on him

  5. I think Arsenal should just allow him stay and keep learning from senior players, especially since they didn’t sign a young DM. You never know, this might just be his breakthrough season. Partey, Gorjinho, and Elneny are in their 30s. And they have history of injuries. If anything happens to their fitness, we might be in serious trouble.
