Arsenal are interested in bringing a highly rated midfielder who’s been dubbed the ‘Danish Fernandes’ to the Emirates this summer.
The Gunners, who are locked in a race for the Premier League title, are already thinking about how they can strengthen their side for next season and have several targets.
One of which is Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Jesper Lindstrom who has impressed greatly in the Bundesliga and could be on his way to England.
He has been dubbed the ‘Danish Fernandes’ by talent scout Jacek Kulig because of his incredible goalscoring abilities from midfield.
In just 90 senior career appearances, the 22-year-old has been directly involved in 43 goals, 11 of which have come this season.
With stats like that, it’s easy to see why he’s attracting interest from clubs all over Europe and he would make a great addition to Mikel Arteta’s side.
Recent reports have claimed that Arsenal are ‘very interested’ in signing the youngster but will have to ‘dig deep in their pockets’ to secure him.
He’s ‘insanely happy’ to be linked with Arsenal
In a boost to the Gunners’ hopes of signing him, it appears that Lindstrom is keen on making the move to the Premier League.
Back in September, he described the reports linking him to Arsenal as a ‘huge confidence boost’.
Speaking to Danish outlet Tipsbladet, as reported by 90min, he said: “It’s a huge confidence boost. It is one of the biggest things as a footballer, so of course I am insanely happy.
“It is always great to play in the biggest league in the world, but whether Arsenal suits me is difficult to say. Right now I’m in a good place in Frankfurt.”
Frankfurt currently sit outside the Champions League places in the Bundesliga and given the great season Arsenal are having, the lure of winning trophies could persuade him to leave.
