Arsenal’s number one priority hasn’t changed over the last week & it remains Brighton’s Moises Caicedo.
As previously reported, The Gunners have had two bids rejected so far and Brighton remain firm with their stance that the midfielder is not for sale this month.
Arsenal’s bids have been £65m & £70m and while they’re said to be discussing internally whether they should submit a third bid to test Brighton’s resolve, they’re also weighing up other options too ahead of tomorrow’s deadline.
The options Arsenal are looking at, other than Moises Caicedo:
- Sander Berge – Sheffield United
- Amadou Onana – Everton
- Youri Tielemans – Leicester City
- Jorginho – Chelsea
With Mohamed Elneny out with a long-term injury, Mikel Arteta is left with Thomas Partey as his only option who can play the midfielder number six role which is why Arsenal are so desperate to bring somebody in before the window closes. It could end up being the difference between a league title come the end of the season, or simply just Champions League football.
Arsenal reacted well when they lost out on Mykhailo Mudryk earlier on this month, with the signing of Leandro Trossard who brings quality at the top end of the pitch, a player who can make an instant impact and knows the league well.
Arsenal fans will be praying the club can pull off a similar deal to help cover for Thomas Partey for the remainder of the season.
Arsenal were linked heavily with Youri Tielemans in the summer & even had personal terms agreed with the Belgian with reports suggesting at the time that his dream is to play for The Gunners over every other team in the Premier League.
It’s well known Mikel Arteta is a big fan of Jorginho as the Arsenal boss tried to sign the player back in 2021. Now it’s been reported Arsenal could turn to the Italian again, if they can’t get another deal done in the last 26 hours of the window.
Sander Berge is one of Martin Odegaard’s international teammates and a player Arsenal have been looking at for some time.
The 24-year-old Norwegian joined Sheffield United in January 2020 from Genk for a reported fee of €23m. His performances that season didn’t go unnoticed as he played an integral part in Sheffield’s historical season where they finished 9th in the Premier League.
A big day awaits Arsenal tomorrow… All the latest updates will be on our website throughout the day!
