Mady Camara's agent speaks out as Arsenal aim to beat Ivan Gazidis to £22m signing
The agent of Arsenal target Mady Camara has been discussing his client’s plans ahead of the transfer window, insisting the Guinean is not fussy when it comes to playing in England or Italy.
As reported by SDNA, the Gunners are expected to make a move for the £22 million-rated star who helped dump Arsenal out of the Europa League prior to football’s suspension.
But his agent, former Watford defender Pierre Issa, speaking to Calciomercato, suggested Camara was not overly keen on England or anywhere else, amid rival interest from AC Milan. He simply wants to play at a higher level.
“Many European clubs have shown a great deal of interest in Mady, but first we want to see how the Olympiacos season ends.
“He has no preference on which country or league to join, because the main issue for him is finding a big club, so he can continue improving and fight for titles.”
Arsenal will no doubt be hoping to beat Milan to Camara’s signing, as the midfielder could add the steel and energy that has been lacking from Arsenal’s midfield in recent times.
It would also see the club going head to head with former Gunners chief executive Ivan Gazidis. The report from Calciomercato suggests that the now Milan CEO was hoping to bring in players on lower salaries and at fair transfer fees in the next transfer window as part of a new financial plan at the San Siro.
Camara fits that bill and it appears Arsenal could be set to get into a transfer battle with the former Emirates chief.
Arsenal fans will be hoping that they can get the better of that duel after seeing first hand what Camara is capable of.
