​Arsenal renewing interest in Anderlecht whizkid Lokonga

Arsenal are showing a keen interest in signing Anderlecht midfielder Sambi Lokonga.

That is according to Belgian outfit Nieuwsblad, as they claim the 21-year-old is an alternative to Brighton's Yves Bissouma.

The Gunners hope to sign Bissouma from the Albion this summer, but could turn to Lokonga if they are priced out of that transfer by the Premier League club.

Lokonga is someone Arsenal have been watching since 2019.

The source claims it would take a fee of roughly £13 million to £17 million for Anderlecht to consider selling.
