Arsenal have been linked with a move for Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and The S*n believe the club will offer Reiss Nelson AND Ainsley Maitland-Niles in order to land the player.
Have you stopped laughing yet?
There is no denying Wan-Bissaka’s talent and this is not meant as a dig at him or Palace in any way, but there is simply no way Arsenal will let the two biggest youth prospects at the club leave in order to sign a defender.
It simply won’t happen.
While Reiss Nelson has been enjoying a bit of a bumpy time at Hoffenheim recently, AMN has been hailed from all quarters for his recent performances.
The Arsenal fanbase would not want to see either leave and it’s hard to imagine how Unai Emery would sanction the sale of both players, let alone one.
The S*N claim Palace want £40m for AWB and Arsenal will offer BOTH players to lower the cost.
Now, according to Transfermarkt, Wan-Bissaka is worth £22.5m, Nelson £15.3m and Maitland-Niles a ridiculously low £6.3m, despite having a longer contract than Nelson. Add another £10m on there and you’ll get closer to his true value.
Whatever way you cut it, Nelson + Maitland-Niles are worth much more than one Wan-Bissaka.
The hate-fill racist’s rag also claim Arsenal are’desperate’ to sign the right-back as if we don’t have Hector Bellerin to come back from injury.
