Arsenal are eyeing up a move for £35m-rated Premier League speedster

Posted by

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Brighton and Hove Albion winger Kaoru Mitoma.

The 25-year-old Japanese winger has had a fantastic season with the Seagulls so far and his performances have caught the attention of the London club as per Calciomercato.

Mitoma has 7 goals and 2 assists across all competitions this season and he could prove to be a useful addition to the Arsenal attack.

The Gunners are lacking in depth in the wide areas and the signing of Mitoma will certainly help arsenal improve in the final third. The Japanese will add pace and unpredictability to Mikel Arteta’s attack.

The Brighton star has proven his quality against the best defences in the Premier League and he could be an asset for Arsenal in the long run.

Apparently, Brighton will demand a fee of around £35 million for the Japanese international winger and it remains to be seen whether Arsenal are prepared to break the bank for his services.

The Gunners wanted to sign Moises Caicedo from Brighton in January but failed to agree on a deal with the Seagulls. It is clear that Brighton will not budge on their asking price and therefore the Gunners will have to shell out £35m if they want to sign Mitoma.

The opportunity to play for a top club could be an attractive proposition for the winger and he will be hoping to test himself in the Champions League next season.

Arsenal are currently on top of the Premier League table and the Champions League qualification is all but a formality for them right now.

  1. The £35 mill figure is total fiction. Where do you get this from? He’s on a long contract and far better than Trossard. Buying him for that is fantasy football!!

  2. The most exciting player in England right now……£35m.? Don’t make me laugh! That gets his right sock! UTA

  3. 35 million 🤣🤣🤣. Tony Bloom will send em straight back home with that offer – especially after the toxic Arsenal kept coming back in for Moises after Brighton told them to back off because he’s unconditionally not for sale after Yves left and Muepu had the retire. Bridges burned and I’m sure they are way down the pecking order for Brighton players after their toxic approach of unsettling players.

  4. Brighton suffer from such PL snobbery. They are 6th in the PL because they are good enough, and deserve to be there. Mitoma is sensible enough to conclude that Brighton will, in all probability, qualify for either Europa League or Europa Conference this season. Next season, if they can retain these brilliant players, they could go even better and make Champions League. I have been an Albion fan all my life, over 70 years, and this current team is the very best I have seen. Big Six; just leave our team alone!

    1. Why should he not leave? I understand his wages are one of the lowest among the first team players. Brighton should stop exploiting a transfer system. Players are not slaves.

  5. I think you are missing the point. Players in the Premiership are all paid well compared to the general public. But many “entitled” clubs and their supporters think they have a divine right to destabilise players and cherry pick them at cost price. Mitoma is probably Brighton’s best player at the moment. Why should Brighton sell him at a cut price to Arsenal or any other team just because they are supposedly a great team!!! If Arsenal would like him, offer a proper amount for him. If Brighton sold him to Arsenal for around £30, Arsenal supporters would be crowing what a steal that was … Get real

  6. Brighton paid only 2.5m or so to get him. How much profit does your owner as an employer want to make?
    A club like Brighton get talented players dead cheap/pay low wages, and try to sell them for exorbitant prices. But they often set an unreasonably high transfer fees, which makes it very difficult for players to further their career, eg. Trossard & Caicedo this winter window. One wonders if Brighton and their supporters are happy and content with forcing players to stay, and blocking players’ chances of upgrading their trade, while knowing the club cannot offer the same amount of wages or a perceived better football as some other clubs can.

  7. What you’re really saying is that there are “big” clubs owned by foreign billionaires/governments with lots of money and resources. There are also “small” clubs that can’t afford to buy expensive players, but have to find players with potential and develop them. The “big” clubs then have the right to cherry pick all the good players from the “lesser” teams at bargain basement prices. If the “small” clubs won’t sell the players cheaply, the “big” clubs say it’s unfair … Let me ask you a question? In your local charity shop you find a picture you like for a fiver. Next day you watch a programme on a famous artist, and realise that maybe your picture is worth something. You get it valued and following it is actually worth about £100,000. Your boss at work is you talking about the painting and offers you £1,000 for it. You refuse and say it’s worth much more that: he gets angry and says you were being unreasonable as he is offering you much more than you paid for the painting. What would you say to him?
