Arsenal in Lille talks for Renato Sanches; price set

Arsenal are in talks with Lille for Renato Sanches.

The young Portugal international is available from the Ligue Une champions, with interest arriving from across Europe.

TMW says Arsenal are the latest club to make contact with LOSC about Sanches' situation.

Lille are prepared to sell - but at a starting price of €35m.

Last season, Sancho helped Lille win the Ligue Une title, playing 29 games, scoring once and producing four assists. He also participated in all four of Portugal's games at this summer's Euro 2020.

Regarding a move to Arsenal for Sanches, much may depend on the future of Granit Xhaka, who remains a target for Jose Mourinho's Roma.

However, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta stated after their preseason friendly defeat to Chelsea on Sunday that he wished to keep hold of the Switzerland international. Xhaka scored Arsenal's goal in the 2-1 loss.
