Arsenal miss out as transfer target chooses new club

An Arsenal transfer target has decided upon his new club.


As per Fabrizio Romano, Marcus Thuram has decided to join Inter Milan as his next club, with an agreement in principle in place over a long term deal.

The player himself also tweeted about the move but his comment has since been deleted.

Thuram is set to join Inter Milan on the back of several impressive years with Borussia Monchengladbach.

But with his contract up at the end of June, Thuram is joining Inter on a free in what is a great bit of business for the Serie A side.

However, it could have been great business for Arsenal, who were first linked with the Frenchman back in February.

Thuram scored 13 and assisted six in 30 Bundesliga outings last season and as Arsenal are in need of more goals up front, signing the 25-year-old on a free transfer would have been great business for the Gunners.

Instead, it looks as though Arsenal will not be signing a striker this summer, with Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber their main targets. Havertz can play as a false-nine, but reports indicate he will be used as an 8 in Mikel Arteta’s system.
