ARSENAL AND JESPER LINDSTROM TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are reportedly more than interested in signing Jesper Lindstrom. He plays as a midfielder for the Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. The report also claims that they made the signing of him a big priority in the January transfer window. However, a deal in the January transfer window can be difficult for the clubs.
It is because the selling clubs demand inflated prices for the players. A number of players are sold only if the buying club puts in a crazy bid. Hence, Frankfurt are no different. Therefore, Arsenal are ready to wait until the summer transfer window next season. The Gunners consider Jesper Lindstrom a part of the long-term project. Mikel Arteta has also reportedly said yes to going ahead with the transfer.
WHY ARE GUNNERS SO KEEN ON THE YOUNG DENMARK MIDFIELDER?
The report also claims that not just Arsenal but a number of other clubs have also shown interest in the midfielder. The Gunners need to sign a new midfielder in the January transfer window. It is because of the injuries that happen in the midfield department. Mohamed Elneny is already out till early 2023 with an injury. Whereas, Martin Odegaard also picks up minor injuries. Thomas Partey and Fabio Viera are getting up to speed after recovering from their respective injuries.
Therefore, Arsenal does need to sign a new midfielder. Another problem is Mikel Arteta currently does not trust the ability of the only fit midfielder Albert-Sambi Lokonga in the big Premier League matches. Hence, the Belgian is considering a move away from the club in the January transfer window. Therefore, the Gunners need to resolve the situation in midfield.
Jesper Lindstrom would be a big risk signing in the January transfer window for Arsenal. However, the midfielder has had an impressive start to the Bundesliga season and the Champions League. People also need to remember Mikel Arteta is known for managing and developing youngsters.
