Kompany admits to following Arsenal player, will he sign the midfielder?

Burnley manager Vincent Kompany has admitted he follows Arsenal midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The Premier League legend has led Burnley back to the English top flight and fans will expect him to sign some players with Premier League experience to add to his squad.

Sambi Lokonga is struggling at Arsenal and was sent out on loan to Crystal Palace in the January transfer window.

The Eagles could keep him, but he might return to the Emirates. Will Kompany sign him for Burnley?

The Clarets boss admits he follows every player he worked with at Anderlecht, but that does not mean he will sign them.

He tells Voetbal Nieuws:

“I’m going to keep it very simple. I always follow every player who has been associated with Anderlecht. I just try to see how they evolve.”

He added: “Lokonga? We are now talking about Sambi and that does not mean anything about a transfer for next season.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We expect several players to leave the club in the summer and one man in that category is Sambi Lokonga, who has simply not met expectations since he moved to the Emirates.

Arsenal is searching for midfield reinforcements, which is a clear sign they do not believe the Belgian is good enough.

  1. Kompany like this kid, he had highly recommended this kid prior to Lonkango joining us.

    The Burnley gaffer is just keeping his card close to his chest,he will pounce once he’s made available

    A keep saying young players should try to stick to coaches that believes in them as opposed to going after the club that’s offering a piss pot load of money.

    A player like Guenduzi should be answering a call from Emery the minute he calls, Mudryk to Arteta Anothony Martial to Arsne Wenger, those managers believe in those players and would ensure they get maximum playing time.

    But the lust of money cause these greedy players to end up in the cemetery of talents in Madrid and Stanford Bridge

  2. Kompany is smart – too smart to be interested in Spurs, no matter what they offer him. The best thing he could do is stick with Burnley for at least one season – he has no experience of managing a PL side and Burnley would give him a setup and players he knows and understands. If he wants a job managing a top PL side, it would be prudent to see if he can establish a PL reputation for himself with Burnley first, rather than jumping in feet first with Spurs. Then he would be accepting a new job from a position of strength rather than going into a club that thinks it is doing him a favour.
