Arsenal make shock bid to sign Real Madrid star

Arsenal’s transfer window is heating up as we edge closer to the deadline.

Arsenal have already signed Leandro Trossard from Brighton in a deal worth £26m this week and are close to recruiting Jakub Kiwior from Serie A side Spezia for £20m.

This provides cover in the Gunners’ forward line and also gives Mikel Arteta a second left-footed centre-back option, as Arsenal currently only have Gabriel for that spot.

Now, it appears that the north Londoners have turned their attention to central midfield.

Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka have formed a great partnership at the base of Arsenal’s midfield this season, but an injury to either would likely spell the end of the Gunners’ title hopes as their cover is currently not up to scratch.

However, as per the Evening Standard, Arsenal are interested in a surprise loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.

It is unclear if Real Madrid would sanction a loan move, but the 20-year-old has struggled for minutes this season.

Whilst a loan move for Camavinga would be short-term deal, adding to their midfield is a long-term priority for Arsenal and they view a deal for West Ham’s Declan Rice as their number one priority for the summer.
