Arsenal Make Formal Move For French Attacker – Reports
According to reports in Italy, Arsenal have made a formal approach to Juventus for highly-rated French attacker Kingsley Coman.
The 19-year-old came through the youth ranks at Paris Saint-Germain and we were strongly linked with a move for the youngster when he decided to leave France last summer.
The Daily Mail reported last August that the teenager had snubbed our advances in favour of making a move to Juventus where he impressed during his 13 appearances last year.
It looks like Arsene Wenger has renewed his interest in the French U21 international as the Metro are citing reports coming from Italy that claim we’ve made a formal approach to Juve for Coman’s services.
However, we may have some persuading to do as the newspaper suggests that the Serie A champions are determined to hang on to the attacking midfielder and will refuse all offers that come their way.
Even if the Italians do agree to cash-in, we’ll face some stiff competition for his signature as the Metro say that Bayern Munich are among the clubs also keeping a close eye on his situation.
Coman is a huge talent who has a bright future ahead of him so obviously I’d love to see us sign him and I think Arsene would be able to get the best out of him.
But Juventus don’t appear to be willing to part ways so I doubt we’ll be able to lure the youngster to the Emirates this summer.
