Some Arsenal fans react as club make an official bid for Lokonga

Some Arsenal fans were reacting after the club made an official bid for Anderlecht ace Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The Belgian made 37 appearances for the Jupiler League giants last season, captaining them on many occasions.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Gunners have made an offer of €17m (£14.6m) plus add-ons, potentially €4m (£3.4m). The side have also handed the 21-year-old a five-year deal, expiring in the summer of 2026.

It was reported by HLN that the player is not expected to report for pre-season with a move close.

The midfielder would be Arsenal’s first signing of the summer transfer window. However, the club’s also in talks over a move for Aaron Ramsdale, whilst Ben White is closing in on a transfer.
