It will not be easy at all to hire Arsenal and Mikel Arteta’s next target despite the fact that the owners and managers already have him on their radar. The ‘Gunners’ are interested in a winger and make us forget the interest they had in Raphinha who finally ended up at FC Barcelona. The Brazilian was in the orbit of the Londoners, as Chelsea also claimed it.
Arsenal started the Premier League on the right foot by beating Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park. Not comfortable with what has been shown, they want to throw away as much money as possible to be able to return to being protagonists in the rented English in search of the Champions League, and why not, the league title. They were armed with great players like Gabriel Jesús, a millionaire transfer by giving 50 million euros, Fabio Vieira for 35 million, as well as the Ukrainian, Oleksandr Zinchenko who already gave an assist at the start of the tournament.
The Londoners want to strengthen their lead after the departures some time ago of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and the most recent, that of Alexandre Lacazette who returned to Olympique de Lyon. For this reason, they are not satisfied with just Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesús and Bukayo Saka and are looking for another player on the wing. The target, Frenchman Moussa Diaby from Bayer Leverkusen.
Moussa Diaby, according to Football Insider, is very interested in Arsenal and they want to keep the Frenchman. It will not be easy, because for this they will have to pay a million, which, in fact, would become the most expensive signing of the summer window. For now, Gabriel Jesus is the most expensive player Arsenal paid for. They were 50 million euros, 21 less than what they are willing to give for the 23-year-old French international.
For now, Arsenal has the backing of owner Stan Kroenke to give 71 million euros. Football Insider sentenced, “Arsenal does not want to pay so much for the Frenchman, but he is willing to push the ship to get a deal.” Key days will be the following for the ‘Gunners’, in search of closing the most expensive signing in this current transfer market.
