Arsenal plotting swoop for Dortmund star Bynoe-Gittens

By on September 19, 2023

Arsenal are reportedly contemplating a swoop for Borussia Dortmund star Jamie Bynoe-Gittens in the upcoming transfer window, as per the Spanish outlet Fichajes.

The 19-year-old moved to the Signal Iduna Park back in 2020 from Manchester City. Upon joining BVB, the Englishman has struggled with a few injury issues over the last few years.

However, he managed to feature for the German giants in a few games last season and showcased glimpses of his talent, scoring three goals and registering a solitary assist in four league starts.

It appears after suitably being impressed by Bynoe-Gittens’ displays for Dortmund in recent times, Arsenal have decided to register their interest in signing him.

According to the report by Fichajes, the North London club have been keeping a close eye on the 19-year-old’s development over the last few years and they feel he has the potential to become a top-class player in the future. So, Mikel Arteta’s side are keen on acquiring his service.

The report further claims that Dortmund have no intention of selling the youngster yet. So, the Gunners are set to face a tough challenge in securing his signature and they are even ready to spend a fee of up to £26m to persuade BVB to cash-in.

Bynoe-Gittens is a left-winger by traits, he is quick, technically sound, can dribble past opposition defenders in tight areas, has the ability to create opportunities for fellow attackers and also can finish off his chances.

The 19-year-old is certainly a talented player and would definitely be a good signing for Arsenal with a view to the long-term future if they decide to sign him in the upcoming window.

However, he has already suffered a few lengthy injuries – which have prevented him from developing quickly. Therefore, bearing his injury history in mind, it would be a big gamble from Arsenal should they eventually opt to sign him by spending the reported £26m fee.

It is going to be interesting to see whether the North London club decide to formalise their interest in signing Bynoe-Gittens in the upcoming transfer window to strengthen their frontline.
