Arsenal might have been handed a big boost in their quest to bring Kevin Volland to the Premier League.
The Gunners were recently linked with a move for the German centre-forward by Sky Sports.
It was reported that Arsenal have scouted Volland on several occasions earlier this season and could pounce with a bid.
The 27-year-old has been utilised on the flank on occasions since his £17 million (ESPN) switch to Bayer Leverkusen.
With Mikel Arteta’s wide options not exactly bang in form, Volland would be an attractive target for the Gunners.
Arsenal might have received a big boost in the quest to land their man.
Sport Bild are reporting that Volland has switched agents and is now under the ISGM umbrella along with Arsenal left-back Sead Kolasinac.
Typically players swap agents in order to instigate their next move. That could be telling when it comes to the 10-cap German who is out of contract in 2021.
Bild claims that Leverkusen want to extend Volland’s current contract, increasing his wage to £100,000-a-week.
ISGM played a massive part in Kolasinac swapping Schalke for Arsenal in 2017. He earns £100,000-a-week (Spotrac) as well and is typically a first-team regular at the Emirates.
The report suggests that if a deal isn’t agreed by the summer, the Bundesliga side will look for a sale in a bid to avoid losing him on a free transfer.
Volland is the vice-captain at the Bay Arena and has seven goals and seven assists to his name this season.
News of the player changing his agent might be music to Arteta’s ears.
The player is determined, hardworking and the kind of player that could excite the Arsenal faithful.
If the club could do a deal for Volland it would be a step in the right direction.
