According to credible reports, Arsenal have completed the transfer of two young exciting talents In A Combined £35M Deal and medicals have been booked.
Mikel Arteta knows he has gaps to fill in his bloated squad and needs to find players who can walk straight into his team and as such, the process is about finding young stars who can grow to become world class players.
Sambi Albert Lokonga is an Anderlecht player who can play in a holding role or high in the field similar to Matteo Guendouzi’s style of play and he looks like a talented midfielder who is ready to play at the highest level.
After Arsenal first offer for the Belgian was rejected by his club, the Gunners have returned with an improved bid of £17M +add-ons that is worth up to £20M.
Nuno Tavares on the other hand is a left-back for Italian side, Benfica and it’s likely that he will be the backup for Kieran Tierney, he is very quick and overlaps to contribute to the forward play, he would be a top addition to the squad.
Benfica value their defender at £17M but the Gunners have put in a bid of around £8M +add-ons that will make the bid be worth up to £15M.
This move by the Gunners are two excellent pieces of business and Arsenal will now focus on selling players before signing again.
