Kingsley Coman has been lately linked with a move away from his current owners- Bayern Munich. The France international has fallen below in the pecking order at the Allianz Arena.
Newly appointed boss Niko Kovac is thought to not be seeing Coman in his plan and is ready to let go of the former PSG winger in the transfer window. Robben and Ribery are both preferred to Coman at Bayern, thus, he could be allowed to go as the Bavarians trim their squad.
Arsenal have been very busy in the transfer window this season. Five signings have already been completed by Unai Emery. Stephan Lichtsteiner was the first to arrive from Juventus.
Bernd Leno and Sokratis followed the Swiss defender by coming in from Germany. The latest two have been Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi. The Gooners have been quite happy with their transfer business so far. The Emirates Stadium outfit has not signed a player only in the attacking department.
Arsenal fans are worried however, about not having wingers to play out wide in a 4-2-3-1 formation that is preferred by Arsene Wenger’s successor. They were discussing possible arrivals of Kingsley Coman and Ousmane Dembele to their club in a situation that could fix the problem of less wingers.
The French duo has been widely linked with a move to London. The 22 year old Coman might come on a permanent deal, while Dembele could join on loan. Kingsley Coman has already been flirting with his potential future fan-base as he liked a comment which suggested his arrival in north London.
One fan replied saying: “Come to Arsenal. We really want you at the club. Such a great player we really need.” Another supporter added: “Coman liked it. We couldn’t, could we?”
Speaking last week about the chance of adding further additions to his squad, Emery stated that he would – but only if one big opportunity arose before the end of the window.
“Today, we are OK,” said Arsenal’s head coach. “Maybe we can bring in one if there’s a very good possibility for them to help us, but the club has done a great job of signing new players and I am happy.”
“We signed the players who we needed and only if one player is a big opportunity for us will we sign them,” he added.
At the ripe age of 22, Coman already has a respectable trophy cabinet and several years of football ahead of him. Coming to Arsenal could be a great plus not just for the Gunners, but the entire ecosystem involving them.
