[spacer height=”20px”]Kingsley Coman, one of the Bayern Munich’s extravagant squad, has reportedly been scouted by Arsenal agents so that they bring an experienced winger to North London before the transfer deadline, i.e. three weeks from now, according to beinsports.com
Unai Emery has identified Arsenal’s main worry and has decided to act on it as there are no experienced wingers in the squad excluding Alex Iwobi who has shown his potential in passing although he hasn’t cemented himself into the playing XI.[spacer height=”30px”]
There is a need for players to step up and deliver delicious and juicy aerial or ground balls from the flanks and Coman can exactly provide that. Sead Kolasinac, last season had to keep a check on the crosses delivered per game, so the Bosnian will look out to impress Unai as he did to Wenger.
Arsenal have tonight made an approach for Kingsley Coman. They are willing to pay double what Bayern Munich paid for him, if they're willing to sell.
Coman joined for €21million plus a €7million loan fee, meaning Arsenal's offer to Bayern is in the region of €46million.

A rumoured bid of 46 million was surfaced moments after Coman was linked to Arsenal. Heading into his fourth year with the Bavarians,the 22 year old will be looking forward to get back into the starting XI, facing competition from the likes Ribery and Robben. Coman has won three successive league titles with Bayern Munich and is praised for his scintillating pace and dribbling skills.
Coman could have been seen lifting the World Cup Crown over his head if not for an an unfortunate ankle ligament injury in February which left him in doubt of, hence stealing his World Cup dreams. Even though he managed to play the DFB Cup final in May, Coman failed to impress Les Blues Head Coach Didier Deschamps and did not make to his final 23 Squad.

Coman, a usual starter at Bayern Munich, has appeared in 21 games scoring and assisting 3 times each as suggested by transfermarkt.com. His mix of pace and dribbling could add new perspectives to Arsenal’s attack with French teammate Lacazette and Aubameyang aiding him at front.

With Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben riping of their age, it could be insanely impossible for Bayern to let him go,otherwise the stakes must be raised by Arsenal as they are placed in a desperate situation as the new head coach Unai Emery aims to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Although Arsenal fans would be somewhat pleased with the transfer business the Gunners have done this season, they do lack some firepower at the wings and hence the target in these coming weeks would be signing a winger in the form of Kingsley Coman to impress the North London fans with a star-studded line-up.
Moreover just a few hours back Chris Wheatley via Goal.com has exclusively revealed Arsenal and Unai Emery’s interest in bringing a “Fast,Direct Winger” as a priority signing before the start of the new season.[spacer height=”30px”]
Arsenal have already managed to bring in a new central midfielder in Lucas Torreira, a new center back in Sokratis and an experienced left back in Stephan Lichsteiner however they have yet to sign an attacking recruit with his present options up front being Lacazette, Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alex Iwobi and Reiss Nelson so an upgrade on the existing wingers seems really on the cards given the 4-3-3 formation we predict Emery to be using this season.

Moreover Coman hardly managed to nail down a starting spot last term around having spend the majority of the season on the sidelines and finding others ahead of him. So for now it seems Arsenal are quite optimistic about convincing Coman to swap Munich for London in search of more first team opportunities are ready to launch quite an audacious bid for the Frenchman.

Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott have both left the club during the winter transfer window last time around so an attempt to land Kingsley Coman seems quite justified too us and in fact should have sooner. [spacer height=”30px”]
