‘Not Convinced, I Would Stick With Lokonga’ ‘Looks Like A Younger Thomas Partey’ Fans React As Arsenal Are Linked With 26M Rated Italian

Arsenal are leading the race to sign Vitoria Guimaraes holding midfielder Ibrahima Bamba, according to reports in the Portuguese media.

The Gunners were first linked with the Italian back in November when it was mentioned that scouts were keeping a watchful eye on his development.


Following the knee injury sustained by Mohamed Elneny, the London club are believed to be keen on strengthening their options in the middle of the park before the transfer window closes next week. Bamba appears to be one of the targets under consideration but, due to his inexperience, fans on Twitter are split over whether he would be a useful addition to the squad:

Bamba is 20 years of age and he has only made 30 senior appearances in his career; most of which have come as a centre-back. Considering he has a release clause of €30m (£26m) as well, it would be a surprise if Arsenal do make a move for him this month.
