Arsenal are currently searching for the right midfielder who can fill the empty spaces left by Martin Odegaard and Dani Ceballos who have returned to their original club.
According to the report gathered this morning, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lille star Jonathan Ikone this summer. The report claimed that Mikel Arteta is negotiating a deal with Lille to bring the energetic midfielder to Arsenal.
Ikone was one of the outstanding players for Lille last season. The 23-year old man helped his club to claim French League last season. Ikone scored four goals and also provided reasonable assists for his players. The versatile midfielder played 37 matches for his club last season.
According to Anfield Central, Liverpool have approached the player. The report claimed that Liverpool have backed off because of the huge £150,000k wage Ikone demanded. The report also claimed that the player demanded huge bonus.
According to report in France, Arsenal have stepped in to bring the midfielder to Emirates stadium this season. Ikone is valued £30m.
