It looks like the new Arsenal management team is being quick off the blocks in trying to get our urgent defensive signings as proven by the fact that Freiberg’s Caglar Soyuncu has revealed that we have been in serious talks over a move to the Emirates.
Sven Mislintat is definitely well-informed about the talents in the Bundesliga, and it would appear that another one of our priorities is the RB Leipzig midfielder/winger Emil Forsberg who has been extremely impressive since arriving in Germany from Malmo in Sweden, and we are appently preparing a £50m offer right now.
The 26 year-old only signed a new contract last summer, but the Mirror is reporting that Leipzig is preparing another pay rise for Forsberg to try and ward off interest from Arsenal, but it would appear that the Swede definitely wants out after saying goodbye to the fans after the last game of the Bundesliga season.
It is true that Arsenal fans would love an out and out winger to help Aubameyang and Lacazette to get more chances in the box, but with Ozil, Mhkitaryan and Welbeck (and possibly Perez?) already vying for a place in our forward line I am not sure that we really need a player like Forsberg right now with the back line being our most urgent priority.
What do you think? Should we be spending £50m on Forsberg?
