TALKS ON: Tchouameni could be on his way to Arsenal as Real Madrid Close to Axing

Aurelien Tchouameni could make a surprise move to Arsenal this summer. With Declan Rice set to undergo a medical before being announced as an Arsenal player next week. This is along with the signing of Kai Havertz. Arteta is wasting no time in vastly improving his squad. And the Frenchman could be the final piece of the jigsaw.

Having joined Madrid from AS Monaco last summer, Tchouameni enjoyed a solid if unspectacular maiden campaign in Spain. This is by winning the Copa Del Rey. While also ranking first in the squad for tackles per game (1.9) and interceptions per game (1.5) as he showcased his defensively abilities in the heart of the midfield.

TCHOUAMENI COULD BE AN OZIL REPEAT FOR ARSENAL

In the summer of 2013, Arsenal managed to lure Real Madrid attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil to the Emirates. That came as Arsene Wenger looked to build another team which could return to the top of the Premier League table.

Unfortunately for the Gunners, the recruitment of the German international couldn’t forge a title winning side. However, his imprint in the team showed the north Londoners could still sign players from clubs such as Madrid. And Ozil was still at the peak of his powers.

The club broke their transfer record by £27.4m to sign the attacking midfielder for a fee of around £42.4m. And he went on to make over 250 appearances for the Emirates outfit. This is during his seven seasons at the club, winning four FA Cups in that period.

The former Werder Bremen starlet registered 123 goal contributions during that time frame. And he became of the most productive attacking midfielders in the Premier League. Athough at times, the rest of the side couldn’t quite match his incredible ability. Tchouameni would also be looking to match what Ozil did for the club.
