Arsenal: Transfer Target Mentions Arsenal And Says, "I Know I’m Ready."

If Arsenal's pursuit of a central midfielder was a closely guarded secret, it would have been the worst kept secret of the winter transfer window. 

Arsenal are believed to be looking at all of their transfer options in order to bring in a reliable midfielder in the current transfer window. Bruno Guimares of Lyon and Arthur Melo of Juventus have both been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks. However, neither of them is certain to make the switch, a circumstance that should prompt Arsenal to consider other options. 


Apart from those two, Arsenal have a strong chance of signing Lille's Renato Sanches. In a recent interview with L'Equipe, Sanches admitted:

"Maybe Milan and Arsenal are interested, but I don’t know. I spoke with my agent. I know which clubs are calling me, but I can’t say right now. But I know I’m ready. If an offer comes in, I’ll find out what’s best for me."



Renato Sanches will be a free agent in 18 months because he is not interested in extending his contract with Lille and is considering a fresh start elsewhere, leaving Lille with only one option: sell him. 

With Lille ready to do business, Arsenal should try to tempt them with a bid this week in the hopes of securing the Portuguese midfielder. 


If Arsenal is able to sign Sanches, Arteta will have a young but experienced midfielder who can remedy Arsenal's midfield woes.
