Lens striker Lois Openda has commented about his future and admits it’s nice to hear that big clubs like Arsenal are interested in him.

Openda has been in terrific form in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 18 goals and providing 3 assists so far. And now, Daily Mail reported that Arsenal are interested in him ahead of the summer transfer window.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal will be in the market for a new striker as they got the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard and Eddie Nketiah. But they could be tempted by promising talent of Openda.

However, Openda is doing his best not to get carried away by such speculations. He stated he is trying to ignore stories like this and simply focus on his current club. He further stated:-

“I know very well there’s a lot of noise, but I’m staying calm. I haven’t worked this hard to be distracted. It’s nice. It’s a sort of recognition, but I mustn’t listen to what’s being said.

“The Ligue 1 player of the month award from March is in a cupboard. I’m under contract until 2027 with Lens. I’m very good here. I hope to write a page in the history of the club, leave a mark.”

His current club Lens are currently sitting in 3rd position in the Ligue 1 table and pushing for Champions League football next season. Openda will also gather interest from other European clubs in the summer transfer window.
