There is drama here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by The Sun that Arsenal are set up the chase for £10 million rated Maxime Gonalons.
The club have made no secret of the fact that they intend to rebuild this summer and have several transfer targets that they want to land as the end of the season approaches and Arsene Wenger is relishing the fact he finally has a decent amount of money to spend.
Now it seems that the Gunners are having a break from chasing goalkeepers and forwards – this time they have been linked with a central midfielder.
Lyon’s Gonalons is firmly on Wenger’s radar and a £10 million move is being prepared for the 24-year-old who has three years left on his current deal with the Stade Gerland-based side. The player is nothing if not consistent and has been at Lyon for the entirety of his career yet is known to be welcome to a change especially if it means moving to a superior league.
The North London club are set to send scouts to watch the player in Lyon’s Ligue 1 fixture against Nancy this weekend signalling the Gunners firm interest in the French senior international.
