'Better than Lokonga': Arsenal told to sign £30m midfielder this summer, he's become so 'dangerous'

Arsenal could really do with bolstering their midfield ranks this summer.

The likes of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Martin Odegaard and Mohamed Elneny have done well for the Gunners.

However, there could potentially be some movement in the summer.

Xhaka is reportedly on Roma’s radar, while Elneny’s Arsenal contract expires at the end of the season.

Besides, Mikel Arteta will need more strength in depth anyway, if he is to challenge for silverware next term.

Now, PSV Eindhoven legend Aad de Mos, speaking on Voetbal4U, has pointed Arsenal in the direction of Ibrahim Sangare.

The Gunners haven’t been linked with the 24-year-old, who is on Leicester’s radar.

According to The Sun, the Foxes are lining up a £30 million summer swoop for Sangare.

“First on the team sheet”

However, De Mos reckons the Ivory Coast international is good enough for Arsenal.

“Ibrahim Sangare is better on one leg than Leicester’s midfield,” said De Mos. “This season, he is the king of PSV.

“Sangare is not only suitable for Leicester, he can also easily join an even higher club.

“He can easily play at Tottenham and certainly also at Arsenal. He is better than Albert Lokonga.

“Sangare is a great player. I think 35 million euros is a good price.

“He would be first on the team sheet for any of those teams (Leicester, Arsenal and Spurs).

“You need someone like that, who takes the ball and always puts the boot in.

“And, lately, he has also become dangerous in the opposition penalty area.”

It’s a pretty good shout from De Mos.

At £30million, Sangare wouldn’t break the bank, and he’s certainly a player who’d offer Arsenal a lot.
