Arsenal close to completing move for Anthony Koura


French striker Anthony Koura is closing in on a summer move to Arsenal.

According to reports in France, the young striker is in advanced talks with the Gunners and the London club are looking to agree to terms on a free summer transfer.

The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer and has scored 9 times for French Ligue 2 side Nimes.

Koura has been linked with moves to Newcastle and Bournemouth in the past and it seems Arsenal ahead of them in the queue now.

The striker has impressed the Arsenal scouts and the Gunners are tracking his progress closely. A January move was on the cards, but Arsenal have decided against paying any money for a player who is out of contract soon.

The Londoners will sign him on a free transfer at the end of this season.

It will be interesting to see how the youngster adapts to the gulf in quality between Ligue 2 and the Premier League next season.
