Arsenal reportedly want to sign 'perfect' £19k-a-week ace, could become 'greater than Fernandinho' - TBR View

Arsenal could do with bolstering their midfield ranks in the summer.

Although Mohamed Elneny has been doing well lately, his contract expires at the end of the season.

It remains to be seen whether Mikel Arteta will offer him a new deal – and whether the player will take it.

The Best XI Already NOT Going To The 2022 World Cup

Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ future is also uncertain – he’s currently at Roma and his contract expires next year.

Now, one report has linked Arsenal with one of the most exciting midfield talents in the world.

“He would like to play in the Premier League”

Gianluca Di Marzio has told Wett Freunde that Arsenal are eyeing Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Italian has also claimed that the 22-year-old is eager to play in the Premier League.

“A lot of clubs in the Premier League follow him,” said Di Marzio. “Arsenal, Manchester United to name just two.

“He would like to play in the Premier League. He stayed with Monaco for another year to wait for the chance to play in the Premier League.

“I think (this year) will be the summer he changes.”

Tchouameni is rapidly approaching a century of appearances for his club, and has won eight France caps.

Arsenal – or any other suitors – wouldn’t be getting him for cheap, that’s for sure.

A report by Spanish outlet AS – via Sport Witness – claims Tchouameni has a £59m price tag.

But he’d certainly be a coup for Arsenal if they were to get the deal over the line.

Tchouameni’s contract is reportedly £19,000-a-week – the Gunners could easily increase that manyfold.

Could Arsenal land their own Fernandinho?

The Scouting App published a report on Tchouameni in October last year.

“His style of play is similar to that of Fernandinho with his tackling and reading of the game ability,” they wrote.

“A highly technical defensive midfielder who possessed great offensive skillsets, Tchouameni could turn out to be as great or even greater than Fernandinho at this rate.

“Tchouameni has all the tools to become one of the better box-to-box defensive midfielders in football.

“He already possesses elite defensive skills to go along with his highly impressive offensive skills.

“If he is to improve his shooting to become more of a threat and become that complete midfielder, he would be unstoppable.

“He’s already a key player for his club at AS Monaco and it’s only a matter of time he becomes a key player for the France national team if he keeps playing the way he’s playing.”

“He’s really, really good”

Fabrizio Romano recently claimed that Tchouameni would be “perfect” for the Premier League.

He told Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE: “Premier League clubs want him since long time.

“Tchouameni was top of Chelsea’s list last summer.

“It was impossible to sign Tchouameni because Monaco didn’t want to sell him. Now they are open to sell.

“At the moment, everything is still open.

“But my personal opinion, whoever signs Tchoumaneni will get a fantastic signing.

“In my opinion he’s really, really good and perfect for the Premier League.”
