Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the situation of wonderkid midfielder Ibrahima Bamba. The midfielder also has a 26.5 million clause inserted in his contract.
However, the Gunners are unlikely to make a bid for him in this January transfer window. Although, moving to the Premier League giants in the next summer transfer window is not out of question.
ARSENAL AND IBRAHIMA BAMBA TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the situation of Italian midfielder Ibrahima Bamba. The midfielder’s agent is also in London to talk to multiple clubs including the Gunners. However, the report also claims that a January transfer move is very unlikely. This is because the Gunners would like to sign a midfielder that has the experience of playing in the big leagues. The Gunners are also currently at the top of the Premier League table.
Hence, they do not want to take a risk in signing young players. However, there is a possibility that Arsenal would explore a move for the Italian midfielder in the next summer transfer window. Vitoria Guimaraes team coaching staff will also be happy with the potential reports. This is because Ibrahima Bamba is very important to their plans for the rest of this season. Hence, they would like no team to activate the 26 million release clause in his contract.
THE GUNNERS WANT TO SIGN MOISES CAICEDO FOR THE MIDFIELD POSITION IN THE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
According to reports, Arsenal wants to sign Moises Caicedo in the January transfer window from Brighton. They have also made a 60 million bid for the midfielder. However, Brighton have rejected the bid. They have also said that their star midfielder is not for sale. However, the Gunners are likely to come back with a second bid. This also clearly shows the policy Mikel Arteta is following. He and Edu Gaspar want players that have played in the top leagues already this season.
Hence, players like Jakub Kiwior and Leandro Trossard were also signed in the January transfer window. The lack of experience in the big leagues is the main reason for Arsenal to not overpay for Mykhaylo Mudryk. Once, the January window ends, the Gunners will hope to find agreements on extending the contracts of Bukayo Saka, William Saliba, and Gabriel Martinelli.
Hence, Arsenal and Mikel Arteta are going to have a busy second half of the season. The Gunners are also hoping to win both the Premier League and Europa League titles. They also have the FA Cup. However, the main priority for the Gunners this season is to qualify for the Champions League next season.
