Accoding to reports by high rated Italian journalist, Di Marzio, Arsenal target Geoffrey Kondogbia is set to sign for Inter Milan. This is coming days after news broke that the player has held discussion with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. According to reports, Wenger wants the player at the Emirates but if newer reports are anything to go by, it is either the discussion Wenger held with the player did not go well or Arsenal have been priced out.
Kondogbia had a good season with Monaco last season after overcoming an initial period of injury. The powerful midfielder who is more at home in the defensive midfield role but can also play the box to box role would have been a very good signing for Arsenal.
He is young, versatile, French. Ticks all but one of Wenger boxes – he is not cheap. Which could explain why the gunners are not going to be signing him.
Personally, I do not think he is going to Inter Milan because they are more attractive than Arsenal, I believe it is all about money and Wenger not wanting to pay what either the player or his club wants. Inter Milan are playing in a decline league and do not have European football to offer.
