Despite their struggles once again this season, there is some good news for Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern courtesy of Metro.
The publication have claimed that the Gunners are closing in on Sebastian Jung, a right back who currently plies his trade for Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga.
Arsene Wenger is of course on the hunt for a right back after it became increasingly clear that Bacary Sagna would be leaving in the summer, and has identified Jung as the man he wants.
The 23-year-old would cost the North London side around £7 million and at that he would be a bargain. Some of our Chelsea punters quip that this is perfect so Wenger can sell him onto Manchester City in a few years time for a profit!
The player’s agent Mino Grillo was asked where he felt Jung’s future may lie and noted: “In England we know Arsenal are very strongly on his trail for the summer.
“They have had scouts watching him in the Bundesliga. There is was interest in the past from Inter, Roma and Milan, but no recent contact.”
Will Sebastian Jung become Arsenal’s first signing of the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
