Reported Arsenal target Eduardo Camavinga could leave Stade Rennais in the final week of the transfer window.
According to Fabrizio Romano, ‘there are chances’ that the teenage midfielder could leave the Ligue 1 side in the remaining eight days of the summer market. Arsenal are one of the sides eager on signing Camavinga.
Fabrizio Romano also states that the French club could be open to selling Camavinga for just £30m. Based on the midfielder’s age, international experience and potential, it could be a potential steal in the market for any side looking to sign a player for the future.
As well as Arsenal, Manchester United and PSG are also eager on the midfielder. However, with the window set to shut next week, Camavinga remains a Rennes player.
Camavinga’s is as one of the most exciting midfield talents in all of Europe after making his debut at 16-years-old. A Man of the Match performance in his debut against PSG cemented the youngster’s status as one to watch.
Insider’s View: Xhaka contract renewal looks even more confusing for Arsenal after Camavinga update
At the start of the window, at least two new central midfielders were a must for Arsenal with rumours circulating that Granit Xhaka will leave the club for AS Roma.
Whilst the Gunners did well to recruit Albert Sambi Lokonga, Xhaka staying put and signing a new deal was unexpected. And the decision is starting to look even more baffling following this update on Camavinga.
The Rennes midfielder is available at a cut-rate fee. And Camavinga fits the criteria of player Mikel Arteta is looking to sign for Arsenal this summer.
However, with Xhaka now being the player to replace Xhaka this window, Arsenal have shot themselves in the foot by making a decision too early on the Swiss international.
