Romano gives Lokonga deal update – “Working on final details”

With all the focus at the weekend being the arrival of Nuno Tavares as an Arsenal player, (in fact he should be at London Colney right now), the negotiations for our expected second signing, Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht, seem to be have put on the back burner.

But just now Fabrizio Romano has given us an update, and assures Arsenal fans that talks are progressing positively and an agreement is expected very soon, once we have sorted out the “final details”.

Here is Romano’s Tweet…

If Mikel and Edu could get these two players unveiled by the end of this week it may calm Arsenal fans’ nerves that the transfer window project is going to plan.

There is still over four weeks to the beginning of the season, and if all the rumours are true and the arrival of Ben White is also put in place, then That would be a very good start to our transfer business, and any more arrivals before the end of the window will be a bonus…

  1. Let’s loan him out aswell like all of the young ones apart from 2 or 3 .Anyway can’t we loan our manager out for a couple of years

    1. We had like the 4th youngest team in the PL last season? What you just want to play ALL the youths we have?

  2. Think about it very very closely….

    SAMBI LOKONGA ————> £17M

    This is just about the kind of RECRUITMENT MADNESS I keep talking about!!!!

    Another wasted money.

    We will never recover even 50% when we sell LOKONGA,,, however I see SOUMARE going for £40m in the near future.

    Wait and see.

    1. Soumare always looked the business to me. I thought Leicester had wrapped a deal for him. I would also choose Soumare over Lokonga whom I have never seen in action.

  3. Ok if MA and Edu are interested in buying Lokonga so be it. Next should be Bissouma and Matheus Pereira.
