Arsenal make first move to agree €20 million star signing, formal enquiry lodged
Arsene Wenger is eyeing the acquisition of a new attacking midfielder, according to emerging reports.
The Arsenal manager looks set to remain at the Emirates stadium for another season at least, despite continued protests from some fans calling for him to step down.
And with the future of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez still unresolved, Wenger is likely to be forced into the transfer market in search of another attacker this summer.
Thus, Get French Football News are claiming that Arsenal have shown an interest in securing the services of promising starlet Kingsley Coman.
The report, which was first broken by French outlet Téléfoot, is indicating that the Gunners have lodged a formal enquiry for the 20-year-old.
Despite showing glimpses of his ability when given the opportunity, Coman, who is at Bayern Munich on-loan from Juventus, is yet to cement a place in the starting eleven of the German side.
Wenger’s impressive track record of recruiting French youngsters over the years could attract the €20 million-rated winger who was part of France’s Euro 2016 squad.
