ARSENAL AND DANILO TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are now the clear favorites to sign Palmeiras midfielder Danilo in the January transfer window. The report also claims that the Brazilian giants are expecting a bid from the Premier League side. However, they have also made it clear that they won’t sell him for cheap. The report also claims that Palmeiras are asking 20-25 million for their young midfielder. However, the asking price is not expected to cause any problems for the Gunners.
Hence, it looks like Arsenal will have more squad competition in the second half of the season. The report also claims that the player is also ready for a big move to the European side. A number of reports also claim that his agent is already in positive contact with the Gunners. Hence, personal terms for the potential move should not be a problem. It also claims that AS Monaco and Ajax are also showing interest in Danilo. However, Danilo only wants to move to Arsenal.
THE POTENTIAL MOVE SHOULD ALSO BE THE END OF ALBERT SAMBI LOKONGA AT THE CLUB
According to reports, the Gunners will allow Albert Sambi Lokonga to leave the club. However, for that Danilo should sign for them in January. The Belgian midfielder has said that he is frustrated with the lack of game time. Hence, a loan move or a permanent move will be on the cards for Albert Sambi Lokonga. AC Milan remains a long-term admirer of the Belgian midfielder. They were also interested in signing him in the summer transfer window. However, the Gunners decided to keep him due to the failure of signing Douglas Luiz.
Hence, Arsenal and Mikel Arteta hope that the best deal can benefit all the parties. The Danilo signing will also increase their squad depth. It will also provide a long-term solution to their midfield department. Many Gunners fans thought Lokonga was the solution. However, it looks like Albert Sambi Lokonga is just another story as Matteo Guendouzi. Hence, the fans will hope that Danilo becomes a successful signing for them in the January transfer window.
Arsenal will hope that they can secure their targets in the January transfer window. It is both in terms of incomings and outgoings in the first-team squad. Hence, Mikel Arteta will hope that they can secure a place in the Champions League for the next season. They will also hope to challenge for the Premier League title and Europa League title this season.
