​Arsenal midfielder Lokonga on Roma shortlist after Wijnaldum injury

Arsenal star Albert Sambi Lokonga is wanted in Italy by Jose Mourinho.

The Roma coach, who lost loan signing Gini Winjaldum to a serious leg injury, is on the market for another midfielder.

According to ASRomaLive, the 22-year-old Lokonga is emerging as an option for Mourinho in recent days.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta does not see Lokonga as a first-choice player, but he is a serious piece within their rotation.

He has come off the bench twice for a combined three minutes in their first three Premier League games of the season.

Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka are first-choice, while Arsenal may still bring in Youri Tielemans from Leicester City.
