ARSENAL AND WESTON MCKENNIE TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY

According to reports, Arsenal are going to hold talks with the agent of Weston McKennie over a possible January transfer window. The agent of the midfielder is in London to talk with multiple clubs. A report has also claimed that no one has yet made a bid for him in the January window. The report also claims that the USA international is very open to a move to a Premier League side. Juventus are also open to a possible sale of the midfielder in the January transfer window.

However, they are only going to sell for a fee of at least 30 million. The Serie A side wants to make a good profit on the sale of the midfielder to improve their financial situation. Hence, there is a chance that Arsenal can even negotiate a little lesser fee for the midfielder. However, the Gunners are going to face tough opposition from a fellow Premier League side. The report claims that at the moment, Leeds United are leading the race for his signature.

LEEDS UNITED ARE CLEARLY LEADING THE RACE FOR HIS SIGNATURE

According to reports, Leeds United are ahead of Arsenal for the signature of a Juventus midfielder. This is because Leeds United have American players and an American manager in the squad. Hence, McKennie is already in constant contact with Leeds United players. Hence, he has also agreed on personal terms with the Premier League side. However, Leeds United are yet to agree on a fee with Juventus. At the moment, they are willing to pay only 20 million.

Hence, negotiations are going to happen in the coming days. However, they are hoping to have positive talks to complete the deal. Although, Arsenal have the necessary finances to hijack the deal. In recent years, the Gunners were linked to him. However, a number of reports have claimed that the Gunners do not see him as to fit in the style of play. Although, it looks like Mikel Arteta has changed his mind about Weston McKennie.

The potential signing of Weston McKennie will help Arsenal increase the squad depth. The Gunners have already completed the signings of Jakub Kiwior and Leandro Trossard in the January transfer window. Hence, it looks like Mikel Arteta wants to sign more players to have more chances to win the Premier League this season.
