Lokonga wants Arsenal transfer

Belgian midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga has set his sights on joining Arsenal, reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano claims.

The Gunners recently failed with an opening bid worth £13m for Lokonga, and they are expected to make a fresh offer.

Lokonga has already agreed personal terms, and Romano reports that the midfielder is determined to join the north Londoners.

Serie A club Atalanta have made an approach for Lokonga with the lure of playing in the Champions League for them.

However, the 21-year-old has snubbed their advances, and waiting for the Gunners to reach an agreement with Anderlecht.

The Gunners are currently £4m short of the asking price. They plan to negotiate add-ons for the remaining fee.

Lokonga may not be the only midfielder arriving at the Emirates this summer with multiple player exits planned.

Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi are all expected to leave the club over the next couple of weeks.
