‘It’s my agent in charge of it’ – Striker confirms Arsenal transfer contact

One of Arsenal’s transfer targets has admitted that the club has made an attempt to secure his services.

As usual, Arsene Wenger has been linked with a host of players heading into next season.

Sunderland’s Joel Asoro is rumoured to be on the Gunners radar with a £5 million offer apparently on the table.

And according to the 18-year-old striker, the interest from Wenger’s side came as a surprise.

“People were a little shocked because I have played very little first-team football,” he said

“I’ve heard a little bit, but if I think about it too much, it becomes ‘what if, what if.’ I try not to think about it too much.

“It came as a shock. It is clear clubs contact each other and stuff, but it’s my agent in charge of it. I try to focus on my football.”
