“WHY WASTE £70M ON Onana, Zubimendi Or Bruno Guimares When We Have A £50m Midfielder Better Than Barcelona’s Frankie De Jong

Arsenal needs a new midfield player, and Douglas Luiz, Amadou Onana, and Zubimendi have all been linked to the team. However, Mikel Arteta believes that Arsenal can solve its midfield problem internally, so there’s no need to spend the necessary £50 million or £60 million on any of these players.

After an incredible few weeks with Luton Town and his performance against Manchester United on Sunday, Albert Sambi Lokonga is the talk of Arsenal. The Belgian had to overcome a frustrating hamstring injury before finally making his mark at Kenilworth Road after joining on loan on the final day of the summer transfer window.

After leaving Anderlecht in 2021, he was thrown into the fire for a team led by Mikel Arteta, which may not have been the best environment for him to flourish. His time at Arsenal has been difficult. A team that required proven talent rather than one to develop a player who was significantly improving.

thrown in when Lokonga was left with high hopes and a mountain to climb after a player of world-class caliber like Thomas Partey left. His reputation rapidly declined, and a bad loan at Crystal Palace under Roy Hodgson’s management just made matters worse.

Lokonga has received tremendous support from Rob Edwards at Luton Town, and the belief that he can play to the best of his abilities has led to some outstanding performances and a notable improvement in the team’s performance. The Belgian has insisted that his story is not yet finished, despite his difficulties with the Gunners.

Lokonga told DH, “I think it’s too early to say [what the future holds].” “I have not yet communicated with Mikel Arteta. I am focusing on Luton. After the season, we’ll speak with Arsenal.

However, everything will take time. I still see myself as a member of Arsenal. Both the staff and the fans there are grateful for me. I believe I have a future at Arsenal, but my success in this role will determine that.

“I’ve always stated that I would like to leave my mark at the Gunners as long as I have a contract with them.”

The performance that Lokonga put on against Manchester United will undoubtedly boost his chances of staying with the Gunners. There will soon be a midfield makeover under Arteta, which will make room for players like the Belgian.

The contracts of Jorginho and Mohamed Elneny will expire in the summer. The latter does have an option that the club can choose to extend for an additional year, but the Italian said to football.london that he is focused on winning with Arsenal right now and that the topic hasn’t been discussed as of yet.

Thomas Partey may also be moving after experiencing more setbacks with injuries during his league season. The Ghanaian has only participated in four league games this season, but he is getting closer to making a comeback because his availability at the end of the season could determine his fate.

Given the ongoing connections to Martin Zubimendi, Lokonga could provide Arteta with the depth it needs. For the time being, he must maintain his excellent play for Luton and hope that the Arsenal supporters are taking note of it.
