Arsenal Target Lands In London To Complete £27m Transfer – Medicals On Monday

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 have had a bid turned down for Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura, as per reports.

The Ligue 1 club could end cashing in on one or two player after £198m world record signing of Neymar from Barcelona, and it is suggested that Brazilian winger Lucas Moura could be amongst them.

According to UOL Esporte, Arsenal have had a bid rejected for Moura, but could still get him if they table an offer in the region of £27m.

With Neymar now at the club and other high profile attackers to accommodate, Moura’s is not guaranteed of regular game time. The 24-year-old has been a regular for PSG since his arrival in 2013, and despite putting up some decent numbers has yet to really establish himself as a key player.

Arsenal just so happens to be in the market for new wingers, with a firm interest in Monaco’s Thomas Lemar. Moura could be a good alternative, especially at that price.

However, therein lies an issue. It seems strange that PSG would sell for what seems like a stipend in a European market that is seeing fullbacks purchased for twice as much and £100m offers being offered for teenagers.

If a hugely wealthy English club indicates interest, they would surely ask for much more money.
