Arsenal are in pursuit of a young promising right back Kenny Lala from Strasbourg and are ready to offer a mouth watering bid for the young talent in order to lure him to the Emirates Stadium this summer transfer window.
The Gunners faced a quite number of problem in their defence line this 2018/2019 season as they lost Hector Bellerin to injury for almost half of the season, Carl Jekinson failed to prove himself to secure a first team spot and 35-year old Stephan Lichtsteiner who signed for Arsenal last summer on a free transfer from Serie A giants Juventus failed to convince Arsenal board to a new deal. So the Gunners are in need of a back up as soon as possible.
Lala is a French footballer who is capable of filling this role for Arsenal making a good addition to the squad. He’s currently having a good season and Unai Emery is keen on signing the 27-year old but Arsenal will have to face competition from fellow England teams Manchester United and Newcastle United for the signature of the Frenchman.
Kenny Lala joined Strasbourg from Lens on a free deal but has proven to worth more than a free player having involved in 38 games for Strasbourg this season scoring five goals and making 10 assists to his name as a right back. Impressive right?
Arsenal finished on a good note this season placed fifth at the end of the 2018/2019 season, 1 point behind fellow North Londoners Tottenham but have a big game to play against Chelsea on the 29th of May ( Europa League Final), having hope of Champions league spot if they lift their first European trophy and the young right back will like to earn a champions league play.
The defender has a deal with Strasbourg until 2021 thereby having a release clause of €20m and can increase as time goes on.
