Breaking – Arsenal completes £30m deal for 22-year-old

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 has indicated interest in Monaco forward Keita Balde Diao, according to the Mirror journalists Neil Moxley and Jake Polden

Napoli is reportedly negotiating a deal for Senegal international, and this could force both the Gunners and Liverpool into the race for the 22-year-old.

The two Premier League clubs were believed to be in pursuit of Keita’s teammate Thomas Lemar, but the winger’s 90m price tag is said to have led both teams to withdraw their interest.

Keita meanwhile only just joined Monaco from Lazio in the summer, but the Ligue One club are believed to want to cash in on the forward they signed for £30m.

With Arsenal pursuing a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, a move for the Senegalese is likely only a backup option.

Keita has found the net five times and provided nine assists from the left wing this season, which pales in comparison to Aubameyang’s 21 in all competitions for Dortmund.
