The news that Arsenal are interested in a transfer move for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has been backed up by reliable journalist Dean Jones.
The rumours that the Gunners will make a bid for the player has been circulating around the football community in the last week or so and has been met with heavy skepticism due to the lack of funds left in the club’s transfer budget.
Dean Jones said in his tweet, that:
‘Interest in Kingsley Coman is genuine. Not sure it’ll happen though’

Arsenal fans could take this in different ways, either that the deal has been given validation and a transfer is really on the table or that it looks to be an unlikely one to take place. We can remain hopeful that it could take place, but do Arsenal really need to sign a winger?
It is obvious Coman is a talented winger, making 35 appearances for Bayern Munich this season, but many as a substitute and still being directly involved in a goal via scoring it or assisting it every 109 minutes.
As well as this, the French forward is only 22 years old and looks to be nowhere near his potential yet.
With all his positives, the argument could still be made that with attacking options of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Lucas Perez, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil that another attacker would serve no purpose for estimated £45m price tag.
We can only wait and see whether there is any solid moves happening behind the scenes with the young player.
Coman may not be the last signing of the transfer window either, with growing interest in the deal for French midfielder Steven N’Zonzi from Sevilla.
Fans and pundits are starting to wonder where the money will be coming from, and with David Ospina linked to Fenerbache, the goalkeeper may be the source of cash for the next few deals.
