Premier League newcomers target out-of-favour Arsenal star

Albert Sambi Lokonga could be given a new lifeline in the Premier League as he struggles to make a name for himself at Arsenal.

The midfielder struggled to play for the Gunners and moved on loan to Crystal Palace in the second half of this season.

As Patrick Vieira is no longer their manager, his chance of earning a permanent move to the London club remains slim, which means Arsenal must decide on his future in the summer.

Vincent Kompany worked with him at Anderlecht and is now set to be reunited with the Belgian.

Football Insider reveals Burnley could land him on loan with an option to make the move permanent at the start of next season.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Sambi Lokonga is not good enough for us and has to find a new home where he can play if he is serious about getting game time.

We already intend to sign a top midfielder in the summer, so there does not seem to be a way back for him.

If Burnley makes a good offer to take him on loan, we should allow him to leave and reduce our underperforming players so that Mikel Arteta can sign top players to his squad in the transfer window.

  1. If I’m not wrong, this player was recommended by none other than King Henry, the lad has potential but the pressure for playing for Arsenal under Mikel is immense. Had it been under the earlier regime where there was hardly any competition except from United or Chelsea., the lad would have excelled. The EPL is very tough now, just ask Jurgen Klopp or Tomas Tuchel. Established players like Ozil and PEA wilted. Mikel has set high standards and is very demanding, something which will not be expected of Kompany as Burnley are not expected to fight for the title or European competitions, except that they need to survive. A loan move would be ideal, the lad would return stronger and challenge for the spot in our team. Just like Saliba.

    1. You actually are wrong he was recommended by Kompany,who even compared him to a young Yaya Touré!!

  2. Never mind a loan.Offer him to Burnley for £12m payable in 2 annual instalments.I see little point in taking the easy way out by loaning players who are never going to make it with Arsenal.Vieira is another who falls into this category I’m afraid ,but I should imagine he will remain in our 25 man squad for next season in the expectation of him developing .
