Lokonga will join Arsenal for USA tour with just quarantine preventing him officially signing

One transfer Arsenal fans wanted to see their club complete for some time now is that of Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The Anderlecht midfielder had been tipped to be Arsenal’s first summer signing, but the move is taking more time than expected to get completed.

Some fans may wonder what is happening and you’d be forgiven for thinking that the transfer might be hijacked by another club again, like that of Emi Buendia.

However, Het Laatste Nieuws has provided fresh and perhaps positive information about the state of things with the proposed deal.

The report claims that his move to the Emirates is practically done and he is currently in quarantine.

They will announce his signing as soon as the midfielder’s quarantine ends and he can start training with his new teammates.

Arsenal has begun their preseason and they will travel to the United States on the 22nd of July for another tour.

This development means he would be with them on that tour which would be their last before the 2021/22 season officially begins.

The 21-year-old joins Arsenal as a midfield reinforcement after they lost Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard.

They have also been linked with a move for Houssem Aouar and if the Frenchman joins, they would have a solid midfield to work with.

  1. Cannot understand why covid is stopping him from signing a contract, as I have signed many things on the Internet, without any face to face contact.

    Let’s hope the article is proven to be correct though, as the club seems to have spent a lot of time on this one.

    1. they want to do all the glitz and glammer stuff probably. Unless Real Madrid suddenly decide to be interested in him this is done. He’s even travelled and is quarantining just to sign.

  2. I do like statements such as:

    “One transfer Arsenal fans wanted to see their club complete”.

    Is there a secret poll these writers are privy to, or do they just make statements like that up.

    There must be hundreds of thousands of Arsenal fans. Are we to believe that the person who wrote this drivel has insight into their minds.?

    I must admit I have never seen this player play in a match, in fact I have never heard of him before.
    So why would I really want to see Arsenal complete this transfer?

    Truly, even the click bait has become stupid!!
