At least five clubs want to sign young Arsenal target

Published

It is not often that a League One player becomes one of the most sought after signings but that is what is happening with Arsenal target Joe Aribo.

In addition to our interest, the Charlton Athletic midfielder is now on the radar of Manchester City, Celtic, Rangers, Southampton and Rennes, according to a variety of reports.

The Addicks themselves are desperate to hang on to the 22-year-old who’s contract expires in the summer, however, with so many clubs interested, including at least two in the Champions League, possibly three with us, then it is hard to see how they will hang on to the youngster.

Aribo has had a stellar season and even though he is playing in a lower league he has shown more than enough to interest so many top-flight clubs.

Our interest has been well documented and even acknowledged by the Charlton manager Lee Bowyer who said,


“We are trying our hardest to get Joe to sign a contract.

“The speculation with Arsenal, if that is the case, shows we have done a good job with him.

“He was hardly playing last season, now he has got teams like Arsenal supposedly looking at him.”

Aribo certainly fits the profile of the sort of player that we want to sign, he is in the mould of Aaron Ramsey with his driving runs and best of all, he comes without a transfer fee.

But if we are to sign him we will need to offer him more than what our competitors can offer, which is a promise of regular first team football at the highest level which makes winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League critical if we are to persuade the youngster to sign for us.

If I was to hazard an educated guess I would say that we are probably the front runners to sign the lad but it is far from certain at this stage.

One transfer battle that Arsenal fans should hope Tottenham win

Arsenal transfer gossip is ramping up and here at Just Arsenal we do not cover all it for a variety of reasons, the main one being that most of the gossip is simply rubbish but we do like to bring you the weird, wonderful and credible when appropriate and occasionally those that we hope does not happen and that is certainly the case with AC Milan playmaker, Suso.

According to the media we are are in competition with Tottenham for the services of the former Liverpool flop and I have to be frank and ask why?

Suso has had a good season for AC Milan but in all fairness, it was his first good season in a long time and while seven goals and 10 assists is not that bad a return from 34 games, it is hardly earth-shattering either.

My problem with Suso is that I have always found him to be average, not rubbish but not a game changer either and we already have too many players like that, we need a player that can make a significant difference and from what I have seen of Suso, he is not that player.

Then there is his release clause, reported to be £33 Million.

Do we really want to spend that amount of money on a player that has already failed miserably in English football?

Yes, he was young, only 17 when he joined the Reds and so some allowance must be made for that but ask yourself this, if he is that good and worth £33 Million, then why has he only ever made four appearances for the Spain national squad?

Like I say, he is not rubbish, he does a job and would be a decent squad player but not for the amount of money he would cost and we don’t want squad players, we want match winners, game changers, leaders and so on and the 25-year-old just does not fit that profile for me.

If Tottenham wants Suso, let them spend the money on him, Arsenal can do better and sign a player that is proven in the Premier League, a Ryan Fraser as an example.
