Albert Sambi Lokonga (21) reported to the Red Devils as a reserve player and potential replacement for Witsel. A European Championship participation can increase his transfer chances, because a number of English clubs have him on the radar. Arsenal follows him most intensively.
The Gunners were already charmed in 2019 when the midfielder extended his contract with RSCA, but they did not make an offer then. Because Arsenal only finished 8th in the Premier League and therefore do not play in Europe, the London club is looking for fresh blood. Anderlecht are hoping for the jackpot, but Lokonga has no caps for the national team yet and with 3 goals and 2 assists, his stats were also poor. Although he mainly played as a defensive midfielder. A transfer price of 15 to 20 million seems the most feasible.
