EPL: Arsenal to meet £70m target tomorrow


North London outfit Arsenal will be meeting their long term target Adama Traore but not on the discussion table as usual. They will be meeting on the pitch when the Gunners file out against his Wolverhampton Wanders side in the English Premier League match on Saturday, July 4, 2020.

The Gunners will only hope to see a massive win to stand the chance of playing in the Europa League next season but more to it is that they will be served the opportunity to access their target, in what will look like a trial for the player.

Daily Mirror had reported that the Gunners were keen on the winger in April but a bid has not been tabled for the player. The winger already has a price tag of £70 million for any suitor.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed the threat the player will pose to his team, stressing that he has got incredible potential especially when he gets the ball on time which makes stopping him difficult.

In case the Gunners become convince about Traore’s quality, the challenge in securing his signature will be his price tag because the Gunners will not be able to meet with such a demand unless a negotiation is done.

However, Arsenal still have Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Alexandre Lacazette to boast of in their attack which makes Traore an option and not a necessity.
