Arsenal interested in Gold Cup star as transfer looks increasingly likely

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly one of the clubs interested in a potential transfer deal for Schalke starlet Matthew Hoppe, along with Everton.

The Gunners are named as potential suitors by US journalist Grant Wahl on Twitter, with the talented 20-year-old really standing out with his form for the USA at the Gold Cup this summer.

Hoppe scored six goals in the Bundesliga last season despite his youth and inexperience, and the fact that he was playing in a struggling team.

It now makes sense that Hoppe could be on the move to a bigger club, with Wahl tweeting that a transfer could be on after the Gold Cup this summer…

Arsenal would do well to bring in more attacking players at the moment, with even Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not quite at his brilliant best last term.

The north London giants could be wise to think about a long-term replacement for the Gabon international, with Hoppe looking like a player with a bright future in the game.

Hoppe could also be a smart signing by Everton, who might even be a more tempting club for the youngster right now after their fine progress in recent seasons, whereas Arsenal have largely gone backwards.
