According to reports from Russia Arsenal are close to complete their second signing of the summer with 6 days to the end of the transfer window.
Russian press claim Arsenal are set to land the 24 year old but no fee was mentioned kokorin who has scored two goals in three games this season has a release clause of €20 million.
In an interview his agent spoke of other premeier League clubs who have previously made inquiry for his signature.
“Right now I’m working on the transfer of Kokorin. Manchester United and Tottenham are interested in his services. There are many reasons to think that he will end up in one of those clubs before August 31.”
However, it is believed that kokorin has been linked to Arsenal after Arsene Wenger failed in signing Frenchman Karim Benzema from Real Madrid , it is obvious someone somewhere is putting kokorin into the mix.
