Arsenal in talks over 17m January move for the ‘next Thomas Muller’

The Gunners are looking to bolster their attack, according to reports

Arsenal are on the hunt for options to bolster their frontline and have been tracking Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Jesper Lindstrom, dubbed the next Thomas Muller, in recent months.

The versatile forward, who can play all across the front 4, won the Bundesliga rookie of the year for the 21/22 season, where he racked up 29 appearances in the German top flight, returning five goals and five assists.

He also was part of the starting XI that saw off Rangers to lift the Europa League trophy, and at just 22 years old already has five caps for Denmark.

German outlet Bild claim that Arsenal have already made contact with Frankfurt over a potential January switch, with a fee of around £17m thought to be enough to persuade them to part ways with the Dane, though an impressive World Cup could change that very quickly.

Though they currently sit atop the Premier League, Arsenal’s squad is far from perfect.

The Gunners are currently somewhat short of wide options, with Nicolas Pepe having left on loan for OGC Nice and the only alternative to Bukayo Saka on the right flank at present being youngster Marquinhos, who only joined the club in the summer.

The Brazilian could well head out on loan this January however due to his impressive progression, which could leave Lindstrom with a natural spot in Mikel Arteta’s squad for the second half of the season.

The Frankfurt forward would offer yet more versatility to a front line that has shown its fluidity already this season, and could prove to be something of a bargain should he be available for less than £20m.
