Arsenal eye 20-year-old Anderlecht midfielder Dennis Praet.
Premier League side Arsenal have shortlisted another midfielder for the January transfer window. Reports have suggested that Anderlecht midfielder Dennis Praet has been in continuous link with the Gunners in the recent weeks.
Arsenal have met Anderlecht twice this season in Champions League group stages. The Belgian side has clearly rejected any chances selling their young talented midfielder. While Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is a big admirer of him.
The 20-year-old has been impressing in the Belgian league which caught Wenger’s eye. The Frenchman is willing to land him in January while it will not be easy as the Belgian outfit are not ready to sell him.
Despite the Belgians rule out a move, player’s agent Jaques Lichtenstein claimed that there is nothing to achieve here in Belgium. In other words he should definitely think for a move, its Arsenal one of the biggest English football clubs.
Lichtenstein told Daily Star: “What can he gain by spending another season at Anderlecht?
“He can join the likes of Arsenal or Valencia, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. He won’t play for just anybody though.”
Lichtenstein believes that his client has the ability to play for big clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool and Valencia.
The agent further added: “Dennis is not far away from being at the level of Arsenal, where they would allow him a year to settle down.”
The young Belgian who joined Anderlecht in 2010 has played 13 games so far for the Belgian side this season.
