With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Arsenal are linked with a move for Rennes midfielder Tongo Doubia.
Arsenal are one of several clubs chasing Rennes midfielder Tongo Doumbia after the player confirmed interest from the Premier League, according to talkSPORT.
The report claims that the Mail international has attracted interest from a host of Premier League sides after impressing for French side Rennes last season, with Arsenal thought to be leading the chase.
The 22-year-old is quoted by talkSPORT as saying that he wants to leave Rennes this summer and his agent has received several offers, including “some from the Premier League”.
Doumbia also revealed that his first choice would be a move to England due to the atmosphere and the fans.
“I know things are progressing well, but we must talk about Rennes now,”
“Not that I want to leave Rennes but my desire is to play in the Premier League, for its atmosphere in the stadiums and the fans.
“If it were up to me I would be playing in England next season.”
Doumbia is quoted as saying by talkSPORT
When i heard Arsenal were interested in a Rennes midfielder, i immediately thought it was another Yann M’Vila rumour!
I would be majorly surprised if Arsene Wenger followed up his supposed ‘interest’ in Doumbia with a firm offer. It seems the Frenchman has his sights set on more established stars, such as his teammate M’Vila, so I don’t expect Doumbia to be at Arsenal any time soon.
