Arsenal have made a bid for Aurélien Chalameny (23-Real Madrid).
Arsenal have had a successful transfer window this summer. First, they acquired Kai Havertz from Chelsea for £65 million. They are also on the verge of landing England’s best midfielder Declan Rice (West Ham) and defender Julian Timbers (Ajax).
Arsenal spent £105 million on Rice, the highest transfer fee in club history. On top of that, Timber’s estimated transfer fee is £40 million. That’s a whopping ₩346 billion in transfers for just three players, and they’re clearly preparing for next season.
It doesn’t end there. Arsenal are also considering the future of Thomas Partey, 30. He’s a key part of the buildup, but he’s been prone to injuries and the Gunners are open to selling if the right offer comes in. Saudi clubs have recently shown interest in the player, while Juventus have also been mentioned as a possible destination.
If they do sell, Arsenal will look to bring in Chouameni as a replacement. The British ‘Football Fan Cast’ reported on March 3 (KST), “Arsenal are interested in Chouameni. They are ready to make a formal bid to sign him.”
France international Chouameni plays as a defensive midfielder. His athleticism and flexibility allow him to possess the ball reliably in the middle of the park and set up attacks. He is particularly strong in tackling and intercepting, and often rattles the opposition goal with powerful mid-range shots. Chouameni arrived in a Real shirt ahead of the 2022-23 season for a transfer fee of €100 million 메이저사이트.
The reason Real are considering selling Chouameni, who has played a key role in 33 league games this season, is due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations. Real signed Judd Bellingham, 19, for a whopping €130 million, and they also want Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain) as a new striker.
In order to comply with FFP regulations, a player must be sold, and fellow midfielder and highly valued Chouameni has emerged as a likely candidate. Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool are also monitoring his situation.
