With the season all over, Arsenal have turned their attentions to the transfer market in search of quality players to bring to the Emirates Stadium this summer, as manager Arsene Wenger prepares for a serious title challenge next season.
This has seen the Gunner’s linked to an avalanche of stars in recent weeks; one of them being Lille’s star midfielder Idrissa Gueye.
Perhaps gone unnoticed by many, Gueye has already been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Southampton are just one of the many potential suitors for the hard working midfielder, with the Saints planning to swoop in for the Senegalese international after they cash-in on “hot cake” Morgan Schneiderlin this summer.
Featuring 32 times in the league, and making six appearances in the Europa League, Gueye, 25, has been one of Lille’s best players this season.
An attacking-minded box-to-box player, Gueye has completed 1708 passes this season, with a 86 percent conversion rate, of which 76 percent were forward passes.
