Unai Emery’s press conference seat may well still be warm, but that isn’t holding transfer rumours back.
Italy’s Calciomercato report a problem for Juventus in their pursuit of Emil Forsberg. It’s claimed Arsenal have had a move to sign the attacker on ‘stand-by’ because they first wanted to get the approval of their new manager.
Now Emery is said to have done that, so the Gunners will ‘re-establish connections’ with RB Leipzig to try and get a deal done. It’s claimed Emery is a fan of the player and even wanted him whilst at PSG.
Take all of that how you choose, but Forsberg to Arsenal wouldn’t be a shock generally.
In April, Bild reported that it’s an ‘open secret’ the Swedish left winger wants a transfer, and they claimed a January move to Arsenal had ‘shattered’.
The German newspaper reported an offer of over €40m, from Arsenal or anyone else, would have a good chance of success this summer.
Forsberg hasn’t had a good season with RB Leipzig and a change may suit him perfectly, but Arsenal could be reluctant to go over that €40m figure.
