Albert Sambi Lokonga swapped Anderlecht for Arsenal in 2021 and went on to make 12 starts in the league in his debut season in England.

His situation at the Emirates has caught AC Milan’s attention, and TuttoMercatoWeb reported on Wednesday the Gunners are open to letting the midfielder leave in the summer window.

It was also explained the Serie A winners are trying to take the 22-year-old away from Arsenal immediately.

The Rossoneri are in the market for a new midfielder and have made the first move to sign the Belgium international.

That’s what Corriere dello Sport on Thursday are reporting, stating ‘there have been contacts with Milan’.

Mikel Arteta’s man has a ‘strong approval’ at the San Siro, while the newspaper makes it clear there are no negotiations underway for his signing.

However, that doesn’t mean a move won’t be possible this summer.

Arsenal, for their part, ‘could open for a loan’ move for the player, but the formula needs to be evaluated.

An operation with the right formula will not be simple, considering the north London club invested around €20m in signing Lokonga last summer.
