Arsenal planning late swoop to agree deal for £12.5m star, Club ready to sell forward

M'Baye Niang

By the look of things, the Gunners seem to be done with signing defenders and midfielders as the focus now is on the attacking side of things.

There are several players that are being linked with a move to Arsenal and one of them is the Senegalese forward M’Baye Niang, according to reports in the Mirror.

It appears that Niang who had a very good World Cup in Russia has caught the eye of the scouts of the Gunners and the club are eyeing a late swoop to sign the forward. His ability to play on the wings will make him a useful player for the Gunners if they do manage to capture him.

Arsenal have spent quite a bit of money to recruit five players so far and Niang is not going to be cheap by any stretch of the imagination. The fee that Torino want is said to be in the region of £12.5m as that is enough to secure his transfer.

Niang is one player that has been around for such a long time that it is hard to believe that he is still very young. This will benefit the Gunners as they will be getting a player that has a lot to offer.

The wings are one position where Arsenal do need some backup as there are not many players that can do well in that position. And with certain members of the squad such as Lucas Perez and Danny Welbeck being linked with a move away from the club, there may be need for some reinforcements.

With the way new manager Unai Emery is setting up the team, there seems to be a real possibility of a winger playing a prominent role. And given the experience that Niang has on the wings, it will do him a world of good.

If any deal is to be made, the North London club will have to act quickly as there are other clubs in the mix for Niang. Until then, we can only wait and see what happens.
