Man Utd wants to beat Arsenal to Premier League midfielder

Amadou Onana is set to spark a transfer battle between Arsenal and Manchester United at the end of this season.

The Everton midfielder has been a revelation in the Premier League this season, even though he joined the Toffees in the summer.

The Merseyside club is now battling to keep him in their squad for another term and they know he is off at the end of the campaign if they are relegated.

Arsenal likes his combative style of play as a box-to-box midfielder and the Gunners are eager for him to join up with their squad.

However, Football Insider reveals they will have to see off competition from Manchester United to add him to their squad.

The Red Devils also need a new midfielder and see Onana as one player that can improve their options and make their other midfielders perform better.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Onana is a superb midfielder and a joy to watch when you see him play, which makes him a player we should add to our squad if we can.

The Belgian will get better and if we let Manchester United win the race, we might regret the decision when we watch him thrive for the Red Devils.

  1. The game against the Citizens shows we need this physical monster in our midfield, it has become abundantly clear not just one but two midfielders is a must going into the next campaign.

    1. @ GS
      I do not think we have the funds for 2 as we need 3 priority positions: Holding midfielder, Left back (as Tierney is probably leaving and Zinchenko cannot defend) and a striker. Contrary to other views I do not think we need a right back as we have White, Tomiyasu and Norton-Cuffy.
      Only way we can buy 2 holding midfielders is if we get a loan signing for a striker and send Balogan on a 6 month loan to a newly promoted club and bring him in Jan.

      1. Am in agreement with those three positions for reinforcement but I would go just a little further.

        One of the midfielders should be a box to box midfielder a great carrier of the ball with close controls highly technical with an eye for goal.

        The second should be a defensive midfielder primary responsibility is to protect the back four a tenacious tackler that is prepared to do the dirty work.

        We both agree on an a week in week out number nine.
        There are strong indications Arsenal will sign a center back.

        Tierney is a good old school left back but he’s not the gaffer type of player so someone like a Ferland Mendy that is sound defensively and is quick on the attack will be required.

        I like Tomi but am not sure how reliable he is, Cuffy is not quite ready this right back position is a grey area

        1. @ GS
          I agree with you about box to box midfielder (Onana or Caiceido).
          As Zinchenko can’t defend and if KT leaves, it might be worth having a versatile player that can play on both flanks as we need 2 in that position.
          It is so embarrassing that I would rather have Xhaka @ LB than OZ.
          I am of the opinion that Partey/Jorginho can be the screen midfielder but yes it might be worth getting someone like Lavia from Southampton for this.

  2. Not looking forward to drawn-out reports mentioning that we bid under the club’s valuation of their star midfielder. I am looking forward to seeing who we get and how many though
