Ligue 1 club decides against selling midfielder to Arsenal

Arsenal’s late bid to add a new midfielder to their squad before this transfer window closes has been unsuccessful so far.

Mikel Arteta’s side has just lost Mohamed Elneny to injury. He joins Thomas Partey on the sidelines.

Their setbacks mean Arsenal must bolster that spot on their team to remain around the top of the league table.

Mikel Arteta knows this and the club is working round the clock to give him one more player before the window closes.

Media Foot claims Arsenal has rekindled their interest in Seko Fofana of Lens.

They had targeted him earlier but abandoned the pursuit. They have now returned, but the midfielder is unlikely to join them.

This is because the report claims it would leave Lens with almost no time to replace him.

They will only accept an outrageous offer for his signature at this stage of the window.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We should have added a new man to our midfield before now. Elneny is not reliable, while everyone knows Partey’s fitness is touch-and-go.

Hopefully, we can still find a new midfielder to add to our squad before the window eventually shuts.

If that doesn’t happen, we will bank on Albert Sambi-Lokonga to step up and he did decently in pre-season.

  1. Seko Fofano would add steal in our midfield but that deal would be difficult.

    A more practical deal is the commanding ball carrying midfielder Frankie de joong if Edu could just devise a plan to take him to the Emrrite, what a window we would have had.

    And to think the lad is presently in the country is certainly worth a shot.

  2. Ben White, alongside Sambi, could be the best short term fix for the midfield. No need to panic. We’re still top of the league.

    1. Why is Arsenal slowing down on signing new midfielders since, what about Your Tielemans and rest but the coach is yet to test Fabio viera uptill now

  3. Fofana is not a defensive or B2B midfielder. He’s very offensive, and would be more of an Ödegaard/Vieira type of player than Xhaak/Partey.

    He’s of no use to us.

  4. @RFrancis, well said, Cedric could play RB first half and Tomiyasu 2nd half, while white plays CDM with Xhaka,
    We can’t bank on Lokonga against Man United.

    1. Why not? For someone who is not naturally defensive minded, Sambi did very well against Villa who are every bit as physical as Man Utd.The matter of DM cover for the talented but “delicate” Partey, ought to have been addressed some time ago, not on the last day of the transfer market.As others have suggested, Ben White seems to have most of the attributes to step into the DM role .

  5. Yes we can add another midfielders in our team and we must add streiaker for our team strong because is not only primeiar league are flay there are euro . and other computition .

  6. Arsenal should have signed a player in the middle field before even the closing of the transfer, not now that the window is about to close now they are likely to end up buying a low class player or even not buy any in the remaining hours to go
