Edon Zhegrova

Apparently, Arsenal has made a proposal for Lille’s star winger Edon Zhegrova A lot of the reaction to the rumour of a transfer was “huh?” At the age of 23, Zhegrova is a member of Kosovo’s national football squad. In January, he signed for Lille from Basel for a fee of €7 million (£6 million).

When things are slow in July, I usually don’t bother to write about rumours like this. After Fabrizio Romano claimed on the Golazo! the podcast that he believes Arsenal are working to sign an unnamed mystery winger before verifying that his sources were true, there will be conjecture associating Arsenal with wingers. For Mikel Arteta, it is apparent that the club is still interested in Raphinha, even though it does not appear that they will sign him at this point.

In any case, this specific rumour doesn’t hold any weight in my book. As a Kosovar football journalist, Arlind Sadiku likely has contacts in Zhegrova’s (also from Kosovo) camp, which is why he is the source of this information.

Football London recognised Sadiku in a report on the rumour, which I suppose indicates something about his reputation, but I don’t think it implies much more than Sadiku is reputable enough to merit the professional courtesy of that kind of acknowledgement. All the well-known Arsenal journalists are silent on the subject.

To be fair, the Fabio Vieira deal came out of nowhere from a non-London-based writer, and Arsenal is thought to be playing things much more closely this transfer window. The sky’s the limit, as they say!

In order to draw any conclusions about Zhegrova, more evidence is needed.. after leaving Swiss club Basel, he joined Lille and played 500+ minutes. In 73 matches for the Swiss Super League, he scored 11 goals. At the top level of French football, he had 13 appearances, with two goals and one assist. To be honest, he’s a good passer and dribbler, but my memory of seeing him play is hazy at best.

If Nicolas Pepe and Gervinho are any indications, the Gunners have a bad history when it comes to acquiring attacking players from Lille. This notion, however, does not appear to be true, therefore the Gunners are safe from more damage.
