The 23-year-old is one of the most underrated players in the Bundesliga and continues to go from strength to strength at Mainz, the club he joined in 2016 from Lens. Skilful and elegant yet powerful and explosive, Gbamin is an impressive all-round enforcer who would fit into the Arsenal way while giving Unai Emery some bite in the centre of the park.
Fussball Transfers reports that Arsenal are still keen to bring Gbamin to the Emirates and he will become Mainz’s biggest ever export should the move come to fruition.
Sandro Schwarz’s side want £30 million, more than they made when selling Abdou Diallo to Borussia Dortmund last summer.
Gbamin idolises compatriot Yaya Toure and that is very apparent in his playing style. He also told Goal earlier in 2019 that he was keen to take the ‘next step’ after three impressive years in German football.
