Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal could yet be favored over Inter Milan to sign Caen striker Yann Karamoh according toTuttosport journalist Stefano Pasquini.
TheSerie A outfit are said to be very confident of a deal coming through for the 19-year-old. The player has expressed a desire to transfer to Inter, and the Italian club have reportedly made an offer worth €5million plus add on to make the deal a success.
It seems however there is some doubt over whether the offer will be sufficient. Karamoh has entered the final year of his deal at Caen and the club’s head coach Patrice Garande has confirmed that the forward would not be at the club by the end of the summer transfer window at the end of the month:
“We expect two players to come in from the market as Karamoh will leave. I hope to have them both next week: Karamoh is training but will not play until 31 August.”
This surely suggests that Inter’s deal for the player is not as close to being a done deal as some reports have suggested. The Gunners had offered a deal for the France Under 21 international which was higher than Inter’s bid. Will Caen go against the players wishes, and agree to sell to the Premier League club instead? We will have to wait and see.
