Arsenal fans have reason to be cheerful today as news reaching us is that Wenger and is team could be announcing the signing of a striker as early as next week. Arsenal is set to edge competitors, Chelsea and Southampton to sign Moroccan international Sofiane Boufal, Guardian journalist Ed Aaron reveals.
With the look to strengthen the attacking options of the Gunners side ahead of 2016/2017 Premier League season, Arsenal has been linked with so many strikers and attackers in recent weeks and are edging close to completing some deal before the start of next week.
With the futures of Alex Chamberlain and Theo Walcot still in doubt, Wenger has reportedly made a move for Moroccan international Sofiane Boufal, and Guardianjournalist Ed Aarons tweeted that Arsenal will hold talks with the player’s representative this week.
The 22 year-old impressed for Lille last season after scoring 11 goals in 29 appearances with the club he joined only in January, 2015 from Angers for £3m.
Lille seeing the interest of ’big clubs’ coming for the striker might want to hike the price of the player and make huge profit.
Sofiane Boufal is a versatile attacker who plays predominantly from the left midfield and his pace is an added addition to his skills and would be a very good replacement for Alex and/or Walcott.
