Arsenal leading the race to sign No.10 Belgium international
Gunners are leading the race to sign Sampdoria footballer Dennis Praet and planning to make a bid during the summer transfer window. Unai Emery wants to strengthen the squad, and his primary target is Belgium international who had an excellent season and paid attention.
Mesut Ozil is in bad form, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny linked with several clubs, Aaron Ramsey moved to Juventus, and they need replacement. Spanish manager set to spend big money on the player in July when the transfer window opens again.
Praet joined the Blucerchiati from Anderlecht in 2016 with a £10m deal. He is one of the best midfielders in Serie A and a key figure for the club. In this season, Dennis played 37 matches, scored two goals and provided three assists in all competition. It is a great result, and he can improve his consequences with top-class partners.
The Belgian midfielder has contracted with the Italian club until 2021, and his release clause is around £25m. His price could increase and become much more during this June. The 25-year-old midfielder is a regular member of the national team which is already a significant achievement for the footballer.
Probably he will accept the correct offer from the Spanish coach. London club will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Sampdoria aren’t going to sell such a prominent figure during the transfer window. Arsenal heavily linked with Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans, Leicester City attacker James Maddison, Cagliari starlet Nicolo Barella and PSG footballer Adrien Rabiot.
