MF Nori Arsenal want 19-year-old Belgian prospect from relegation team
English Premier League (EPL) Arsenal is aiming for midfielder Romeo Rabia (19, Southampton).
The Guardian, a British media, reported on the 17th (Korean time) and said, ‘Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta wants to sign two midfielders. His first priority is West Ham United captain Declan Rice. West Ham are rejecting Arsenal’s £80 million (131.2 billion won) plus offer and demanding at least £100 million (164 billion won). This transfer fee will be a big part of Arteta’s budget.” Arsenal’s interest in Rice is steady. However, interest from several big clubs is hot, and even the ransom is expensive. A player that can be recruited for a relatively small amount is Labia.스포츠토토
The Guardian said, ‘Director Arteta has turned his attention to another player and discussions on the transfer of Labia are underway.’ He added, ‘It is valued at 45 million pounds (73.8 billion won). Southampton was relegated after remaining at the bottom of the league this season with 6 wins, 7 draws and 25 losses (25 points). While rumors about the transfer of key players continued, Labia emerged as a target.
The Guardian says: ‘Arsenal are expected to secure space in midfield with Granit Xhaka joining Bayer Leverkusen. Coach Arteta is planning a reorganization of the position to challenge the championship,’ he said. ‘One of the reasons Arsenal overtook Manchester City for second place last season was Thomas Partey’s decline in form. Albert Sambi Lokonga (one of the resources to replace the party) was also loaned to Crystal Palace last January because he could not establish himself.
A major change in the midfield line is expected. Rabia was a promising player who went through the Belgian national team by age. In March, he made his adult national team debut. He made 29 league appearances last season, scoring one goal. His potential is limitless, but the current contract is scheduled to expire in June 2027, so the cost of recruiting is expected to be formidable.
