Anderlecht willing to do business with Arsenal as Lokonga 'feels ready for step forward'

Anderlecht are prepared to do business with Arsenal over the sale of Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Belgium assistant coach Thierry Henry has encouraged former club Arsenal to make a move for Lokonga.

Should Lokonga go for good money, it would also help Anderlecht boss Vincent Kompany who is hoping to do his own business in the market.

The midfielder has two years remaining on his current deal and there is a belief a deal could be done in the region of £13million.

The player himself has admitted he would be open to moving on, but only if it is to a club at a higher level than he currently finds himself at.

“I will not go to a club which is inferior to Anderlecht, nor to a club of the same level. I will only leave Anderlecht if all the ingredients are there," Lokonga said last month.

“Yes, I feel ready to take a step forward and to rub shoulders with great players. But everything will depend on the proposals that will be made during this summer."
