Arsenal close in potential record-breaking deal as French outfit open talks about summer transfer
Arsenal have received a boost in their quest to lure Eduardo Camavinga away from Rennes this transfer window
Now, we have spoken a number of times about the reports that Mikel Arteta is keen to delve into that transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad in order to get them back into that Champions League spots.
Mikel Arteta has already lost Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard this transfer window, meaning that he will need to add another quality, creative midfielder to the squad, and Camavinga is now on the shopping list of the club
Regarded as one of the finest talents in world football right now, Camavinga is already a full French International and is tipped to go on and become one of the best midfielders in world football.
The latest reports have claimed that Arteta is keen to make a move for the young man, but that £100 million asking price may rule them out of a possible deal this summer, but they have been given a boost anyways
Foot Mercato have claimed that they are eyeing up a move to sign his replacement, and They state that they have opened talks with AZ Alkmaar over a transfer for Teun Koopmeiners.
Camavinga’s agent Jonathan Barnett recently hinted that the midfielder could be among his clients set for a major move, HE told The Athletic: “It is going to be harder. I’m expecting three or four very big deals of my own that will break a lot of records.
“Hopefully, they’ll come about. For the smaller clubs, I think there won’t be as many transfers. We have some very good players.
“We have probably the best young player in the world in Camavinga. We’ve got [Jack] Grealish. We’ve got [Ibrahima] Konate at Leipzig. But then I’ve got over 100 players”
If Arsenal did manage to secure a transfer deal for Camavinga, they would be getting a seriously gifted midfielder
