Arsenal ‘keen on shock Jaidon Anthony transfer from Bournemouth but face competition from Leicester and Bundesliga duo’ | The Sun

ARSENAL are reportedly interested in Bournemouth’s Jaidon Anthony as they look to further bolster their squad.

The Gunners are already on the verge of signing Brighton winger Leandro Trossard in a £27m deal.

The 28-year-old Belgian World Cup ace is expected to be confirmed as their player within 24 hours after passing medical and agreeing personal terms with the Premier League leaders.

Now the Daily Mail claims that they are looking to bring Anthony back to the Emirates as well before the transfer window closes.

The 23-year-old spent a decade in the North London club’s academy before heading to Bournemouth in 2016.

He was outstanding during last season’s promotion campaign campaign but has struggled for match action in the top-flight his term.

After eight goals and seven assists in the Championship, he has been restricted to just four starts in the league so far this campaign.

Anthony’s contract also expires in June, meaning that the Cherries could be tempted to cash in on him now rather than risk losing him for nothing.

And the Gunners are seemingly ready to swoop with this report stating that “his age and previous academy experience” with Arsenal makes them believe that he would be “a shrewd addition with potential for long-term growth”.

But they face competition from a host of clubs from both home and abroad.

Leicester City are also monitoring Anthony’s situation as they weigh-up a move to help bolster their survival chances.

Bundesliga clubs Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen are also keen.

Gladbach are looking for a potential replacement for Chelsea transfer target Marcus Thuram.

Meanwhile Leverkusen want someone to fill the void that will be left when on-loan Callum Hudson-Odoi returns to Stamford Bridge.

Bournemouth will be loath to lose the starlet this month after slipping to 17th, a point above the drop zone, following a six-match losing run.
