Under the management of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal have been inconsistent for a long time now. It will be intriguing to see if the French boss will still be at the Emirates at the end of the current campaign.
Nevertheless, the North Londoners are still linked with top quality players and once again, French international and Monaco star Tiemoue Bakayoko is in the limelight.
Last month, we covered a report (via Le10Sport) claiming that the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have contacted the Ligue 1 side to sign Bakayoko in the winter window. However, Monaco did not want to lose him in the middle of the season.
Now, according to the latest update provided by Le10Sport, the Gunners seem serious about finally signing the 22-year-old defensive midfielder in the summer and have confirmed their interest.
Manchester United are also heavily linked with a move for the Les Bleus star and recent reports have suggested that he can be lured for a fee of 45 million euros ($48million) (SW via L’Equipe).
As per the provided Le10Sport link, even the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea are interested in signing the highly rated star.
Not to forget, Arsenal splashed heavy cash last summer to hire the services of a top holding midfield star in the form of Granit Xhaka. Moreover, they also have stars like Coquelin and Elneny who can effectively perform in the DM role.
In such a scenario, do Arsenal really need another defensive midfielder in the form of Tiemoue Bakayoko? Don’t think so.
