£87.5m set aside: Arsenal linked with 5 superstars

TFF has already pointed out that every single summer seems to bring sensational transfer rumours about Arsenal breaking through their glass ceiling and spending more than they would normally do.

We are yet to see that actually happening in most transfer windows but the rumours are once more surfacing about superstar signings for the club.

The latest players to be linked are of a very high calibre indeed.

British media outlet, the Daily Mail, opines:

£100m-rated teenager heads list of targets including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Thomas Lemar, Riyad Mahrez and Kingsley Coman

Arsenal set aside £87.5m to lure Kylian Mbappe, but could have signed him for £230K last year

Anyone with even a passing interest in football will know all about Frenchman Kylian Mbappe. He’s been sensational in his breakthrough season at Monaco and it seems that all the top clubs in the world want this superb young player who seems to resemble Thierry Henry in terms of playing style.

Riyadh Mahrez has been one of the leading lights of the Premier League over the last two or three seasons and he’s a wonderful, precise and intelligent winger who would definitely add quality to the Arsenal frontline.

Thomas Lamar is a solid midfielder who we could see adding substance to the Arsenal engine room.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is almost as good as Mbappe and one of the leading goalscorers in Europe for the last few seasons.

And, even though it would be very difficult to get him, by Munich winger Kingsley Coman is one of the rising stars of European football.

Obviously Arsenal won’t snare all of these guys. But if they could get two or three of them they would be surely in a much better position to win the league next season.

Arsenal fans – will you be able to snare him from Munich?
