Arsenal set new transfer target chase


Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma winger Justin Kluivert has become a new target for English Premier League club Arsenal in the summer transfer window, The Sun reports.

The Gunners boss has made it clear that there must be some transfer engagements to ensure the club compete and win titles and has sent this message to the club hierarchy for financial support to the team.

There is no doubt the North London outfit will be linked with a number of players and Justin Kluivert has been named as one of the top targets with manager Mikel Arteta hoping to seal his deal as soon as the window is opened.

It is reported that Arsenal will have to cough out £27 million to be able to sign the star winger and that might be the major challenge for Mikel Arteta to have his wish but there are hopes that a miracle could happen when the window is opened.

Mikel Arteta has made it clear that he is in direct contact with the Gunners management, including Edu, who is in charge of recruitment, stressing that they both know what is needed, hoping that something good will come out of their relationship.

Arsenal will yet miss out of the Champions League next season, the reason why Mikel Arteta is making efforts to rebuild the team to change the narrative at the club.
