Nusa to Arsenal

The report further claims that Brugge have already rejected a £26m offer from Chelsea this summer to sell Nusa. So, the Belgian side are expected to demand more than that next year and following his impressive displays on the international stage, the youngster’s valuation has now increased. So, Arsenal will have to spend big to acquire Nusa’s service in the upcoming window should they formalise their interest.

However, the report states that Borussia Dortmund, Ajax and Liverpool are also keen on securing his signature. So, the North London club are set to face stiff competition from those clubs in getting any potential deal done for the Norway international.

Nusa is a right-footed left winger. He is quick, technically sound, has the ability to dribble past opposition defenders in tight areas, can create chances for fellow attackers, has the efficiency of finishing off his chances and also works extremely hard without possession.

The Brugge star is a highly talented player and possesses the potential to become a world-class player going forward. So, he would be a great coup for Arsenal with a view to the long-term future if they sign him over the coming months.

However, it is going to be interesting to see whether the Gunners eventually opt to make a concrete approach to secure his signature in the upcoming window.
