Leicester City set to open talks with Arsenal midfield target

Leicester City are expected to enter into talks to sign Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare, a player who has been linked with Arsenal in recent windows.

The Gunners were believed to be eyeing the midfielder last summer according toFootMercato, before opting to splash out by meeting the release clause of Thomas Partey, but that signing hasn’t gone swimmingly.

The Ghanaian has missed large chunks of the campaign thus far, with him being ruled out on four different occasions since joining in October, while they remain linked with further signings.

Dani Ceballos is set to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan spell this summer, a departure which will no doubt need replacing, but it remains to be seen whether Soumare would still be on their radar.

Time may well be ticking on their window to land the midfielder with Fabrizio Romano claiming that Leicester are set to enter into talks over a deal.

The 21 year-old’s current contract is set to expire in the summer of 2022, which is believed to be attracting interest from a host of clubs.

Are Arsenal short of midfield options at present? Do you believe that Elneny, Guendouzi or Lucas Torreira could have a future at Arsenal beyond the summer?

  1. To your last sentence question, not a single one of those three will play for us next season, IMO. Nor should they!

  2. Guendouzi a chance, unless a good offer comes in to recoup Arsenal’s outlay.
    I personally prefer Bissouma from Brighton over Soumare, because of his better injury record and a better proven player given his EPL experience.
