Lokonga move CONFIRMED, Max Aarons race, Ben White £50m exclusive, Aouar tussle with PSG


The Gunners have confirmed the signing of Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The 21-year-old Belgian star arrives at the Emirates in a £17million deal and Mikel Arteta has hailed his arrival.

He told the club’s website: “Albert is a very intelligent player who has shown great maturity in his performances during his development.

“He has been coached well by Vincent Kompany and his team at Anderlecht.

“I know Vincent very well and he talks so highly about Albert and the positive impact he had to Anderlecht in recent seasons.

“We’re confident Albert’s ready for the next stage in his development and we’re looking forward to welcoming a new member to our squad with his quality and presence.”

However, Ben White has been told that he should set his sights higher than Arsenal.

Danny Mills told talkSPORT: “The only thing I am surprised at is Ben White has gone to Arsenal.

“Let’s assume that he will be at Arsenal for two or three years at least before he goes somewhere else. I just think he is better than that.

“What is he going to win at Arsenal? League Cup, if he is lucky. Maybe the FA Cup.

“I think he is an exceptional player and I think he is a fantastic signing for Arsenal.

“I am just a little bit surprised that Manchester United, who are looking for a centre-half, haven’t come in for him.”

And finally, Arsenal are reportedly interested in West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

Sky Sports News claims the former Manchester United youngster, 28, has emerged as a possible target for Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard is thought to be in the market for a new stopper as doubts grow over Bernd Leno’s Emirates future.
