Geoffrey Kondogbia wanted by Arsenal in new swoop

Football News

Arsenal have been heavily linked with Southampton's Morgan Schneiderlin for many months now, but the latest reports, coming courtesy of The Independent, suggest that Manchester United have fought off the competition for his signature. 

With the summer transfer window open as of the first of July, teams all around Europe are trying to recruit new players.

Kondogbia interest

As a result Arsene Wenger is now looking at bringing in AS Monaco's Geoffrey Kondogbia instead. Arsenal have been in desperate need of a strong defensive minded midfielder for years now and the Frenchman fits that role perfectly.

He played an integral part in Monaco's victory against Arsenal in the Champions League a few months ago, scoring in the first-leg and providing a combative display in midfield.

Wenger an admirer

The Arsenal boss is a known admirer of his fellow Frenchman, as he came close to signing him before he put pen to paper with Monaco. 

Kondogbia comes with a hefty price-tag of £25 million, but that is only a small price to pay for one of the most promising young players in his position in Europe. 

Arsenal fans, should Wenger press ahead with trying to buy Kondogbia this summer? Let us know in the comments box below.
