Following Arsenal’s record-signing of Alexandre Lacazette, reports claim Arsenal are preparing a second bid for Frankfurt wonder kid Aymen Barkok to make him Arsene Wenger’s third summer signing.
Reports from Germany revealed Arsenal have tabled a bid of £8.8m and have frequently sent scouts to watch the youngster in action
Barkok, 19, made his first-team breakthrough with the Bundesliga side last season and has impressed many with his progress. He netted two goals and created two further assists in 18 appearances, having played in a variety of different positions from central midfield, on the wing to his preferred place in the number ten role.
His playing style and attributes have drawn comparisons to that of Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka, who has also been linked with a possible switch to the Emirates this summer.
Arsene Wenger means serious business in this summer transfer window having already completed the signing of Sead Kolasnic from Schalke 04 on a free transfer and Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.
