arsenal-linked-with-shock-move-for-two-time-premier-league-winner-set-to-star-at-the-world-cup

Arsenal are considering a shock move for two-time Premier League winner Leroy Sane, according to a fresh report.

The Gunners have enjoyed an electric start to the season. Mikel Arteta’s side sit at the summit of the table, five points clear of Manchester City in second place.

To maintain their title charge after the World Cup Arsenal will need to add depth to their squad.

Former Manchester City winger Sane has emerged as a surprise target for the Gunners, according to a report.

Sane to Arsenal?

90min claims that Sane is “considering his options” at Bayern Munich, having struggled to break into Julian Nagelsmann’s side this term.

Arsenal are allegedly one of the clubs to have made an enquiry for the winger, who would be signed to ease the burden on Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

Indeed, squad depth will become particularly important in the second half of the season with the World Cup placement having resulted in a congested fixture list.

However, Bayern allegedly have no intention of letting Sane go mid-season.

The club is still yet to replace striker Robert Lewandowski, and reportedly want to see out the season with the options already at their disposal.

While Sane is said to be considering his future at Bavaria, he reportedly won’t push for an exit and trusts manager Nagelsmann will give him a fair chance to prove his worth.

The Brazilian defensive midfielder has long been on the radar of European clubs and has been scouted by Arsenal as they look to add cover for Xhaka and Thomas Partey in midfield.
