Arsenal in advanced talks with 22-year-old Danish playmaker

Arsenal have reportedly opened negotiations with the agent of Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Jesper Lindstrom ahead of a possible winter transfer. The London giants are expected to dive straight back into the market this January after narrowly missing out on the signing of Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa on deadline day.

The Spanish manager and Edu seek to bring in some additional quality. The Gunners have started the campaign in breathtaking form, winning six of their opening seven PL games. However, there’s an understanding that some extra depth could be required if Arsenal are to go the full distance this campaign.

The London giants have contacted the representatives of Denmark international to discuss a transfer. Lindstrom arrived from Danish club Brondby in the summer of 2021 and has since started to showcase his quality in Germany with last campaign’s Europa League winners.

Jesper has scored three times in 10 games in all tournaments this campaign, netting in the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB Pokal. The 22-year-old playmaker has also played in three different positions this campaign for the Bundesliga giants, featuring in attacking midfield and on either flank.

That kind of versatility is exactly what the Gunners are currently looking for in their pursuit of another forward. The London giants worked tirelessly to try and bring in some additional firepower this summer but they ultimately fell short after being priced out of moves for Pedro Neto and Moussa Diaby.
