Confirmed: Arsenal submit offer to sign Lille winger as Raphinha alternative

Arsenal has made early move to sign Lille winger Edon Zhegrova this summer transfer window

However, following the club missing out to sign Raphinha from Leeds this summer transfer

Mikel Arteta side has identified Lille winger Edon Zhegrova as perfect alternative to Raphinha

Kosovo-based journalist Arlind Sadiku reports that Arsenal have submitted an official offer for Kosovan international

Sadiku claims Zhegrova has impressed the Gunners over the last season, since moving to Lille.

Zhegrova only moved to the Ligue 1 side in January, joining from FC Basel for €7m.

He’s since made the most of minimal Lille opportunities, with two goals and an assist in under 500 minutes.

Before Lille, Zhegrova had started the season with FC Basel

For whom he directly contributed to nine goals in 794 minutes before leaving.

That’s slightly better than a goal or assist per 90 minutes.

On the other side of the story, Antoine Barege of France Bleu Nord reports that Lille don’t want to sell Zhegrova and are counting on him for next season

This isn’t the first time Arsenal have been linked with a move for Zhegrova this year.

The Mirror reported in April that the Gunners could spend as much as £11m to bring the winger in this summer.

They’ve started to turn to other targets. Perhaps Zhegrova is one of them.
