Arsenal might still get a chance to sign Andrij Lunin, if Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday are to be believed.
According to the Italian newspaper, the Gunners are still keeping an eye on the 19-year-old’s situation, but, as was previously covered last week, Inter have the advantage.
The Serie A side have already reached an agreement with Zorya Luhansk, but their dilly-dallying to get the transfer over the line has caused the Ukrainian side to give them an ultimatum: give us an answer in the coming days or we’ll entertain other offers.
Among those is Arsenal’s, who are said to be considering the young goalkeeper as Petr Cech’s heir.
Inter’s delay is due to them trying to get Bologna involved in the deal, taking Lunin on loan for a year or two in order to avoid using up one of their precious non-EU slots.
Luhansk pressure means Inter could be forced to buy him anyways, and deal with the problem later.
Either way, Arsène Wenger’s club appear ready to pounce, even if given the smallest window of opportunity.
