Arsenal are interested in Jonathan David and Odsonne Edouard as options if Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette move on this summer.
Arsenal like Jonathan David and Odsonne Edouard as possible signings if they have to move on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette this summer, according to a YouTube update from Charles Watts.
Any transfer updates at the moment come with a huge caveat. We don’t know how much money Arsenal will have until football returns and the season ends. The Gunners could finish anywhere from the CL places to out of Europe completely.
All the same, we know from Mikel Arteta’s recent update that Arsenal are still working on the transfer front. They have to plan for various scenarios, but that doesn’t stop them from identifying targets.
Watts had a good transfer record in the January window, proving reliable on stories like Soares, Mari, Nketiah and loan exits for John-Jules and Smith Rowe. According to Watts, two of the players Arsenal like for the summer are David and Edouard.
“If either Laca or Aubameyang is sold, they (Arsenal) like Jonathan David at [Gent],” Watts said. “He’ll cost about £20-25m. Edouard at Celtic’s another player they’re looking at. So there are options there for Arsenal.”
This isn’t the first time either player has been linked with Arsenal.
