ARSENAL AND JESPER LINDSTROM TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal have reportedly made the first contacts to sign Jesper Lindstrom in the January transfer window. However, they are only in discussions with his representatives. The report adds that the Gunners have not put in an official bid for the midfielder. Earlier today, it was confirmed in reports that the Premier League club were interested in signing the Frankfurt midfielder.
However, it looks like Arsenal are not wasting any time in signing their priority targets. Although, the deal will still be hard to negotiate. The report also adds that the Bundesliga side will demand a 30-35 million fee for the midfielder. It is a very high fee to pay in the January transfer window. However, it looks like Mikel Arteta will need to pay over-valuation to sign his preferred midfielder.
THE GUNNERS FANS HAVE GOT TO BE EXCITED OVER THIS PIECE OF THE TRANSFER NEWS
If the reports are true that Mikel Arteta holds interest in the Denmark midfielder, then the fans have the right to be excited. Jesper Lindstrom is a very young midfielder that has the potential to be one of the best players. The midfielder will not make an immediate impact on the Gunners. However, he would be a fantastic investment for Arsenal in the long-term future.
The midfielder has the potential to do very well under Mikel Arteta. Many young players have spoken well of the impact of Mikel Arteta’s coaching. Many reports also claim that Arteta is open to selling or loaning out Albert Sambi-Lokonga. Therefore, if they are selling the Belgian and have an injury crisis in the midfield department Jesper Lindstrom will be a perfect signing for Arsenal.
Hence, Jesper Lindstrom will be a smart signing for Arsenal in the January transfer window. This is because many European clubs will try to lure the midfielder. Hence, the Gunners must try to sign him in January to avoid getting involved in a horse race for the midfielder.
