Arsenal transfer news: Talks opened for first January signing as Arteta targets attacker | Football | Sport


Arsenal have reportedly opened talks with the agent of Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder Jesper Lindstrom ahead of a possible January transfer. The Gunners are expected to dive straight back into the market this winter after narrowly missing out on the signing of Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa on deadline day as Mikel Arteta and Edu seek to herald some additional quality.

Arsenal have began the season in breathtaking form, winning six of their opening seven Premier League matches.

Nevertheless, there’s an understanding that some extra depth may very well be required if the Gunners are to go the complete distance this season.

Based on German newspaper Bild, Arsenal have contacted the representatives of Frankfurt ace Lindstrom to debate a transfer.

The 22-year-old arrived from Danish side Brondby in the summertime of 2021 and has since began to showcase his quality in Germany with last season’s Europa League winners.

Arsenal also bid for Barcelona winger Raphinha during before his switch to Camp Nou but Leeds were keen to drive an auction for the Brazilian.

Lindstrom is currently valued at around £15million by Transfermarkt as he continues to dream of a move to the Premier League.

The tricky attacker, who has one goal in five caps for his nation, shouldn’t be the one Dane within the Bundesliga to be linked with a move to north London in recent weeks.

Wolfsburg forward Jonas Wind, who can play as a striker or second striker, has made it clear his dream is to play for Arsenal in the future.

The 23-year-old is already a household name for his country having netted five times in 15 appearances.

Talking to Bulinews.com, Wind declared he would sign for Arsenal on the drop of a hat.

“If we glance into the longer term, Arsenal could be a dream destination for me, because it has all the time been my favourite club. Normally, I feel the Premier League is one of the best league on the planet, and it will be exciting to play there,” he said.

“But as I said, that’s not what I’m specializing in in the intervening time. I’m doing well here in Wolfsburg, it’s a great club for me, and the Bundesliga is an incredible league to play in.”
