News out of Belgium says Arsenal have been left with pressure to improve its offer for Sambi Lokonga.
As reported here on Futaa last month, Arsenal has identified Lokonga as the club’s number one central midfield target, ahead of a guy like Yves Bissouma from Brighton.
But it is now believed that the Gunners have tabled an offer, but which has been turned down.
“Anderlecht have rejected a bid of about £13.5 million for Congolese descent Albert Sambi Lokonga, according to Daily Mail,” Goal reported.
“The Belgian club is said to be demanding an offer close to £18m for the 21-year-old who scored three goals in 33 First Division A games last season.
“Despite the turn down, Arsenal are still in negotiations for Sambi Lokonga who they believe will provide competition for Thomas Partey in the middle of the park,” the report concluded.
