TRANSFERS According to Het Laatste Nieuws, Arsenal made an offer for Sambi Lokonga (21), but Anderlecht refused. The offer would amount to fifteen million euros plus bonuses, but Anderlecht would like at least twenty million for the promising midfielder.
It seems certain that the Anderlecht midfield will look quite different next season. The departure of Sambi Lokonga is almost a certainty. The player has indicated that he wants to leave and Anderlecht will also cooperate in a transfer if the right price is offered. There would also be interest from Germany and France.
Arsenal is in need of renewal, especially after it only finished eighth last season and missed a European ticket.
