Silkeborg IF defender Oliver Sonne has expressed his aspirations of donning the Arsenal jersey, although uncertainty looms over the realisation of his dream.

Amid Arsenal’s resurgence under manager Mikel Arteta, emerging as an increasingly attractive destination for talents worldwide, Sonne, a promising young player from abroad, has voiced his admiration for the Gunners.

While Arsenal remains in contention for the title, albeit facing stiff competition from Manchester City, summer transfer plans are underway. Speculations swirl around potential arrivals and departures, with notable names like Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimaraes linked to the Emirates Stadium.

However, amidst the chatter surrounding high-profile transfers, a lesser-known talent from Denmark has captured attention. 23-year-old right-back Oliver Sonne has openly expressed his desire to join Arsenal, deeming it a “dream” opportunity.

In an interview with TipsBladet, Sonne disclosed his ambitions, stating, “I have been here for three years, and there are times when you want to try new things,” Sonne said this week. I would like to play in the Italian league or at Arsenal. It would be a dream of mine, but I don’t know if it’s possible at the moment. I hope it can become a reality one day.”


Despite his young age, Sonne boasts considerable experience, having already made over 100 appearances for clubs like Silkeborg and HB Koge. His versatility on the field, capable of slotting into various positions including right-back, left-back, and central midfield, adds to his appeal.

Moreover, Sonne’s international prospects have taken an unexpected turn, representing Peru despite being Danish-born, owing to his familial ties. While he remains a rising star in Scandinavia, Sonne’s potential availability for a modest fee of less than £2 million this summer presents Arsenal with a low-risk opportunity to nurture his talent.
