Arsenal are planning a move for Diogo Jota.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Arsenal are keen to land Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Diogo Jota.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Portugal international joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Atlético Madrid for a fee in the region of 14 million euros in July 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
In 120 appearances for Wolverhampton, Jota has managed to score 43 goals, and create 19 goals for his teammates.
The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Portugal.
As a member of Portugal national football team, Jota won two caps.
Diogo Jota is set to be a man in demand in the summer transfer window, with a host of clubs queueing up to pursue his signature.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new forward and Diogo Jota is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
Jota is a long-term target of Arsenal and could be a decent addition for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Arsenal are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The 23-year-old would provide a good variety to Arsenal’s attack.
According to the report, “Arsenal have added Wolves star Diogo Jota to their transfer shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window as Mikel Arteta plots a rebuild, according to The Daily Mail. The Portuguese forward has scored 15 goals in all competitions for Wolves so far this season, who now face a fierce battle to return his services at the end of the campaign. Arsenal are keen to sign a wide forward in the summer and 23-year-old Jota has caught their eye, with Arteta said to be keen on bringing him to the Emirates Stadium.”
