Should Arsenal go all out for Djed Spence this summer?

Arsenal won’t have it easy landing Championship star

Football.London reports that Arsenal are eyeing a move for Championship full-back Djed Spence, but face competition from a whopping 11 sides.

The Gunners are looking to bring in another right-back, to compete with last summer’s signing Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Spence is seen as a perfect player, who can not only fight for a first team spot but has the potential to become a mainstay.

Last summer, the Gunners acquired a player of similar mold in Nuno Tavares: Young, with bags of potential. And it looks like they want to repeat the trick on the other side of the defense this summer.

The 21-year-old is currently plying his trade at Nottingham Forest, after making a temporary switch from parent club Middlesbrough.

Despite just being 21, Spence has 85 appearances in England’s second tier league. A move one step forward to the Premier League will certainly be top of his agenda when the season ends in three months’ time.

The report further suggested that a potential exit of Cedric Soares has not been ruled out by sources close to the player.

Whereas Calum Chambers has left the Emirates Stadium after seven years, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Hector Bellerin seem to have run their courses at North London.

It is believed that one of the interested parties is none other than Arsenal’s arch-rivals Tottenham Hots*ur, whose technical director Fabio Paratici is desperate to add him into their ranks.

Come the summer, the competition for Spence’s signature will certainly prove to be intense. If Arsenal can land him, it will certainly be hailed as a coup.

  1. Sure, why not. Seems like a good player with a lot of potential.

    Given, of course, the fee won’t skyrocket.

  2. Type of player we need to sign good abilities very similar to what Tavares brings in comparison to Tierney. Plus you look at our current model of by young develop and see their transfer value increase if we desire to sell.

    I also like the look of Brannan Johnson another good player who again we can get for cheap and potentially double our money on.

  3. Middlesbrough will not sell Spence in the Summer. He signed a new contract before going on loan to Nottingham Forest for the season – all the rest is hype – Spence had attitude problems under Warnock – in part by Prem League managers putting unrealistic expectations in his head which led to his loan spell. When Wilder took charge he stated he would not have sanctioned the loan. Now we are seeing history repeat – a “steal” at 10 mill? Forget that – go back with a figure triple that and you will still get the same response.

    Arsenal need to look elsewhere for solutions to the club’s problems. I would start looking at management level before more players start not wanting to play for the team……

  4. Arsenal should sign Djed Spence this Summer. He has a play mate , Smith Rowe in the AFC already.
    It should also depend on the department that will need him in the
    AFC.
