Arsenal make move to sign elite player who is wanted by whole Europe

Arsenal

One thing that became clear in the summer transfer window is Arsenal desire to ensure that last season was no one-off and that the days of struggling to even reach the Premier League’s top four are long behind them.

They splashed the cash to welcome Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber and David Raya in the hope of competing for the title once again.

And months later, whilst they may not sit top of the tree, the Gunners are in contention for England’s top prize,

Remaining just five points behind Liverpool, who still have to come to the Emirates early next month.

With that said, those in North London may well be looking to repeat their transfer genius by

Welcoming one particular young defender, having already reportedly made contact.

Arsenal desperate to buy players to improve squad

Such is the extensive planning that goes on at The Emirates these days from the likes of Edu Gaspar and Mikel Arteta, 

Arsenal’s focus has seemingly extended beyond the January transfer window

And already onto the summer, when they be hoping to tempt players into a move as freshly crowned Premier League champions. Among those who could be swayed is a young defender currently starring Portugal and attracting plenty of interest.

According to Pete O’Rourke of Football Insider,

Arsenal have made contact with the family of Ousmane Diomande over a potential summer move from Sporting,

Who will likely be looking to receive the defender’s £70m release clause in full.

The 20-year-old is reportedly set to become one of the most in-demand players in Europe this year,

However, meaning that the Gunners may need to act quickly

If they want to secure his signature in the summer transfer window, with Newcastle among those also interested.

Adding Diomande to Arteta’s centre-back options would certainly take Arsenal up a level. Suddenly, they’d have William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes and, indeed,

Diomande to call on in what would be see as the type of depth that results in the highest honours in both European and English football.
