In recent times, Arsene Wenger’s passiveness in the transfer market has seen the Gunners lost out on key transfer targets – The Lilywhites have reportedly agreed to offer £20 million for Arsenal long-term target Yannick Bolasie, as per Croydon Advertisers.
Following the winger’s impressive show-offs at Selhurt Park, the 26-year-old Congo international had drawn attraction from several Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham. But Alan Pardew had insisted that he would not allow the player to leave.
Meanwhile, the reports are also claiming that a deal could be on the offing as both Crystal Palace and Tottenham and nearing an agreement that will see the player moved on a long-term deal to White Hart lane.
However, the news will be a big blow to the Gunners who have been looking to bolster their attacking line following their striker’s poor form
Arsene wenger has been an admirer of the Bolasie and walcott’s preference for the centre forward position means Chamberlain is without any competition or backup on the right wing position. As it is thought, wenger should have signed Bolasie to help bolster his attacking line.
Arsenal have been linked to several forwards in the transfer market including Benzema, Cavani, Lacazette and their inability to complete a deal for one of their targets has left so much to be desired by their fans.
