Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the situation of PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahima Sangare. However , their main priority is to sign Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo before the deadline day.
Although, the Seagulls have already rejected multiple bids for the Gunners. Hence, there is a chance that the Premier League giants would make a surprise move for Sangare.
ARSENAL AND IBRAHIMA SANGARE TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are monitoring the situation of PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahima Sangare. The report also claims that the Gunners see him as their main alternative for Moises Caicedo. However, the Premier League giants have not yet made a bid for him. PSV Eindhoven are also not convinced to sell him in the January transfer window. They have already lost Cody Gakpo and Noni Madueke in this January transfer window to Liverpool and Chelsea respectively.
Hence, losing another star player to a Premier League team like Arsenal would hurt their trophy chances in the Dutch League and the Europa League. Although, a report also indicates that a bid of 40 million or over would convince them to accept the bid. Although, at the moment, such a mega bid might only come from the Gunners. A report also claims that Sangare also prefers to wait for more options in the next summer transfer window. However, a potential move to the high-flying Gunners would certainly appeal to him on the January deadline day.
THE GUNNERS ARE STILL PRIORTISING THE MOVE FOR MOISES CAICEDO
According to reports, Arsenal still want Moises Caicedo as a priority signing in the January transfer window. The midfielder is also ready to force a move out of the Brighton. A report also claims that the midfielder might submit a transfer request on the deadline day. A report has also claimed that the Seagulls could negotiate if the Gunners make a 80 million bid for him. However, the Gunners have not made a third bid for the Ecuadorian midfielder after two bids got rejected.
Hence, it is looking like Arsenal are also looking at alternatives like Ibrahima Sangare and others at the moment. Brighton have also told Moises Caicedo to report for training after the deadline day of the January transfer window. He did not play in the 2-1 fourth round win against Liverpool. Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi has also said that the club hopes to keep him beyond the January transfer window. However, he has also said that the team are also ready with his potential departure.
Hence, the situation at Arsenal is going to get interesting on the deadline day of the transfer window. There is also a chance that the Gunners go for a different transfer target like Sangare on the deadline transfer day. Hence, teams like PSV Eindhoven have to make sure that the transfer value of the player is protected well.
