Vincent Kompany is eager for reunion with struggling Arsenal star

According to the Daily Mail, Burnley manager Vincent Kompany is interested in acquiring Albert Sambi Lokonga on loan for the upcoming season. The midfielder has struggled during his time at Arsenal, prompting Kompany, who previously worked with Lokonga at Anderlecht, to consider bringing him to Burnley.

Despite Arsenal’s initial hopes that Lokonga would thrive in English football, he has encountered difficulties in the Premier League. He was subsequently loaned to Crystal Palace during the latter part of the previous season. However, Lokonga’s performances at Palace were not sufficient to secure a permanent deal, leading to his return to Arsenal, where he has found limited opportunities.

Given the circumstances, Arsenal is open to loaning Lokonga once again, and Burnley has expressed interest in acquiring the midfielder. Kompany, having confidence in Lokonga’s abilities, believes that he can help the player reach his potential within his newly-promoted Burnley team.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Sambi Lokonga has failed to meet expectations at the Emirates and he might return to form playing under Kompany, who has done well with young players since he became a manager.

If he joins them and does well, they will likely pay some money to make the transfer permanent at the end of the term.

  1. Am beginning to have second thoughts on the whole Havertz affair, the type a player and what he brings to the table.

    The more I looked at him the more its looks too much a risk, more like a 50/50 gamble.

    As a fan that follows football allover, I have make it a point of duty to watch some of the very best players, in my opinion Havertz is a mix of Ozil and Van Persie, one big weakness I noticed with Havertz at the bridge he will goes missing.

    He is a top player alright, but am honestly getting a little nervous on this one.

  2. I am glad to see Burnley back in the Prem. IF they play Lokonga, even if only on loan, I THINK THEY WILL STRUGGLE A DEAL TO STAY UP.
    At Burnleys level, Lokonga is the sort of player they will seek, but what a shame for them.
    He was clearly nowhere near the standard WE need and should never have been bought at all.

  3. If Kompany really wants him, i hope he does a job for him. He obviously knows what the kid can and cant do. Proving himself to be a good manager.
