The Gunners are planning a move for Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder Jesper Lindstrom.
According to the football transfer rumours in German media, Arsenal have made initial contact with Eintracht Frankfurt for Jesper Lindstrom.
The 22-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Eintracht spent 7 million euros to sign the Denmark international from Brøndby in the summer of 2021. The 22-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2026.
The attacking midfielder has featured in 10 matches this term, netting three goals in all competitions.
He is considered to be one of the best attacking midfielders in Denmark. Lindstrom has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in five senior appearances for the Denmark national team.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Adding an attacking midfielder remains Arsenal’s top priority this winter and Mikel Arteta will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
Arteta is a firm fan of Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder and Arsenal could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Gunners are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
The former Brøndby man will add a new dimension to Arsenal’s midfield.
According to the report, “Arsenal have made their move for Eintracht Frankfurt attacking midfielder Jesper Lindstrom. BILD says the Gunners are interested in Lindstrom for January’s winter transfer window. Indeed, Arsenal have made contact with Linstrom’s agents this week to open talks about a midseason switch. Arsenal chief Edu is eager to bring in a new attacking midfielder and after considering several options, he is now turning to Lindstrom.”

All in all, Jesper Lindstrom will be an ideal choice for Arteta as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his midfielders.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in London.
It will be interesting to see where the player ends up this winter.
