According to ESPN, Arsenal target Eduardo Camavinga has a deadline of June 28th to decide on a new Rennes contract.

Rennes don’t want the situation to drag on much longer, so he has just 12 days to decide whether he wants to stay long-term or move on.

Additionally, Le10 Sport claim that Arsenal are ‘pushing’ for Camavinga, though a move to Paris Saint-Germain looks more likely.

Arsenal need a midfielder – Camavinga would be a huge coup

Loanee Dani Ceballos is returning to Real Madrid, Granit Xhaka could leave for Roma and Mohamed Elneny isn’t exactly a nailed-on starter.

Arsenal need to find another midfielder, and 18-year-old Camavinga has the ability on the ball, the athletic ability and the reading of the game to be a mainstay of the Arsenal side for years.

How much would Camavinga cost?

It’s claimed that Rennes would want a huge £43million deal for Camavinga, and Arsenal need to think about whether they can actually afford that.

Arsenal need two midfielders, not just the one. Add in that they need a goalkeeper, a right back and a striker too, and £43million for Camavinga may be a tough sell.

Camavinga would though be a blockbuster signing for Arsenal, and fans would surely love Edu if he could pull this one off.
