Arsenal remain keen on potential £50m transfer, deal could be helped by £30m sale

Posted by

Arsenal reportedly still have Southampton wonderkid Romeo Lavia in their sights as they seek to add more youth to their squad.

The young Belgian midfielder has impressed in his time at the St Mary’s Stadium, but it remains to be seen if Arsenal will pay the kind of money required to get a deal done.

According to the Guardian, Arsenal have an interest in Lavia, but Southampton’s £50million asking price might be a bit rich, though the report also mentions the possibility of Thomas Partey being allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium for around £30m.

Arsenal could do well to sell Partey and use a large chunk of that fee to help pay for Lavia, while the report also notes that £21m has already been raised from selling Granit Xhaka to Bayer Leverkusen.

Romeo Lavia to Arsenal?

Arsenal look set to be working with a younger squad next season, with Xhaka and Partey among the oldest members of the starting XI, and possibly set to be replaced by both Declan Rice and Lavia in that area of the pitch in 2023/24.

All in all, it looks like there’s a very exciting future ahead at Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta also building around some superb young talents in the form of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba.

  1. Arsenal hierarchy can never learn in there life! There problem still remain the same thing: the inability to have a strong technical board that regulate the activities of a coach. That is what keep Real Madrid and other big clubs flying. Even Man City has emulated them. Many doesn’t know that Guardiola rejected Haaland, but City board overuled him. Arsenal have not learn anything from Wenger failure. A coach like Arteta, that have not coached anywhere is left to dictate for the club. Arteta rejected Partey three seasons ago, but for the first time, the hierarchy behaved as people with testicle, over ruled him and brought in Partey who is a ball winner. Ever since then Arteta has been doing everything to secretly push him out despite loosing almost every game that Partey did not play as a defensive midfielder. And Arsenal hierarchy are helplessly watching. The two major positions we ought to buy players this season, Arteta have not touched them. We need a second and young ball tackling defensive midfielder to deputise Partey, Arteta has not done that; we need a strong ,tall ,right footed Central defender to rotate with Saliba, Arteta has not done that. 5’10” Timber is not known for his central defence prowess, White wasn’t good at central defence season before last, he only did well this season at right full back ;Rice is more of a central midfielder than defensive midfielder. Let us see where Arteta’s dictatorship will lead Arsenal to.
