Arsenal are very interested in signing Jesper Lindstrom from Eintracht Frankfurt this summer, according to reports in Germany.
German outlet Sport1 (via Sport Witness) report that Arsenal are very interested in a move for Jesper Lindstrom, who is considering leaving Eintracht Frankfurt in the upcoming transfer window.
Lindstrom is open to a move to England, but Frankfurt have him under contract until 2026 with no release clause. They plan to hold out for at least €30-35m.
Arsenal were linked with Lindstrom on a few occasions last year, and speaking last September, the player admitted he was happy to hear the reports.
“It’s a huge confidence boost. It’s one of the biggest things as a footballer, so I’m obviously very happy,” Lindstrom said.
“It’s always great to play in the biggest league in the world, but whether Arsenal is right for me is hard to say. Right now, I’m in a good place in Frankfurt, but it’s great that there are clubs like them that are watching me.
“Something may have to happen at some point, but right now I’m fine.”
Lindstrom generally acts as an attacking midfielder, though he can also operate on the wings.
The 22-year-old has nine goals and four assists in 27 games in the current campaign, and he was called up by Denmark for the World Cup.
As a right-footed player, Lindstrom could offer something different to many of Arsenal’s other attacking midfielders and wingers, with the likes of Martin Odegaard, Fabio Vieira, Bukayo Saka, and Marquinhos all favouring their left.
