“Those Are Nice Clubs” – 22 Goal Netherlands Star Says He Is Open To Arsenal Transfer

Ajax forward Brian Brobbey says that Arsenal are one of the teams he would be keen on joining in the future.

The Netherlands international has been linked with a move to the Emirates in recent weeks and, speaking about where he could see himself playing, he made his interest pretty plain:


“Real Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, those are nice clubs. But, if I stay at Ajax, that is certainly not a punishment.”

Brobbey had a very good season for Ajax, scoring 22 goals in all competitions, so there is a good chance that the Gunners have been keeping close tabs on his progress.

Arsenal are in the market for a striker

With Gabriel Jesus reportedly being made available for transfer, it does suggest that the London club will be looking to reinforce their options up front.

Up until now, though, RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko has been widely regarded as Arsenal’s top target but there is plenty of competition for his signature.

Chelsea and Manchester United are also thought to have tabled proposals for the Slovenian international, who has a €65m (£55m) release clause in his contract. We should find out over the next week or so which team he will choose.

What are the chances of Brobbey moving to the Emirates?

Despite the Dutchman’s interest in joining the Gunners, it seems unlikely that he will secure a transfer to the Premier League side this summer.

Even if they do miss out on Sesko, it is believed that sporting director Edu and manager Mikel Arteta are looking at a number of other alternatives.

Sporting Lisbon’s Viktor Gyokeres, Newcastle’s Alexander Isak and even Napoli’s Victor Osimhen are all said to be on the club’s radar. Brobbey is, therefore, quite a way down the pecking order.
