Arsenal are hoping to complete a deal to sign Belgian midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht.

According to Belgian journalist Sven Claes, the Premier League club have made an offer of around €17 million for the 21-year-old and negotiations are progressing.

SL View: Alternative to Granit Xhaka?

Lokonga was a key player for Anderlecht this past season, contributing three goals and three assists from midfield.

He could prove a quality option for the Gunners as they strive to replace Granit Xhaka this summer.

The Swiss international has been linked with Roma, and Lokonga could be a viable alternative despite favouring a more advanced role.

The 21-year-old has immense potential and could develop into a top-class player for Arsenal/

The reported €17 million (£14.6m) fee could look like a bargain if the midfielder fulfils his potential at the London club.

Lokonga is likely to be tempted to move to the Premier League as it would be a major step in his career.

The fact that personal terms have been agreed suggests that the player is keen on the transfer.

Although the two clubs are yet to agree a fee, it would be fair to assume that a compromise will eventually be reached.
