Mikel Arteta urges board ‘to do whatever it takes’ to sign 27-goal – 13 assists star

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has reportedly told the board that he would like RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku signed during the summer transfer window

The 24-year-old has been in impressive form during the 2021-22 campaign, scoring 27 goals and registering 13 assists in all appearances in all competitions.

Nkunku managed seven goals and two assists in six appearances in the group stages of this season’s Champions League, and there has been a host of speculation surrounding his future.

Arsenal are believed to be interested in the Frenchman, who is capable of operating in a number of different positions in the final third of the field, as Mikel Arteta looks to add some more quality to his squad

The Spaniard has not been impressed with many of his star players this season, and it is widely believed that he will look to overhaul the squad in the transfer window.

But it has been believed that Man United are also very much interested in trying to get a transfer deal done for Nkunku and they are ready tp pay that £60 million asking price that RB have placed on his head

But it has been reported in the media today that Arteta has told the board that he would like Arsenal to beat Man United to the services of Nkunku, and would like him as part of his summer shake-up.
