Report – Arsenal battling Aston Villa for Ligue 1 star

One of the finest forwards in Ligue 1 this season is Lens star Lois Openda and he is on the radar of Arsenal.

The Belgian has scored 17 goals this term and is among the leading scorers in the French top flight.

He seems set to become the next player imported to the Premier League from the French top flight.

Arsenal has watched him and seems convinced he can improve their squad and a new report via The Daily Mail reveals they will try to add him to Mikel Arteta’s group.

However, they are not alone, with Aston Villa reportedly also keen to add him to their group.

The Villans are making good progress under Unai Emery and the Spaniard will be backed with new signings when the term ends.

One of them could be Openda and they are confident they can beat the league leaders to win the race for his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have Folarin Balogun among the leading scorers in France. Why do we want to add another player from the same competition to our squad?

Balogun is one of our own and it would be much better to give him chances to play instead of moving for an entirely new player.

  1. Having been beaten and sent back to the Emirates with tail firmly between legs, Arsenal must strengthen and strengthen properly.

    We were bullied and that must not happen again, so Arsenal must sign another big center back, central midfielder and a big center forward.

    So clearly this kid is not the answer, Vlohovic, Onana and Sutalo is.

    1. Gunsmoke, did you see Jesus’ interview after the Southampton game ? He said there is alot going on at Arsenal at the moment ! It seemed to me that could be a cryptic message. I wondered if that comment suggests some sort of unrest behind the scenes. They certainly haven’t been themselves lately. Also all that criticism about the little mascot girl would have embarrassed them. Just a thought.

      1. Yes but am not sure what to make of he saying lots of things going on behind the scene, as its was almost out of context, he didn’t followed up with his next statement, he did emphasize the team needs to stick together.

        The ignoring of the little girl by team members lacks class, despite her father’s feeble attempts at damage control.

        Evgunner this whole predicament we finds ourselves in started from Anfield comes down to mental strength, it’s as simple as that.

        Now this is what gets me nervous had we gone to the Citizens and find ourselves 3 nil up by halftime, am not sure we could still hangs on such is the state of our mental strength.

        Big time players like Xhaka, Jesus, Partey and Zinchenko have to step up
