Arsenal could enter the race for Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall before the summer as the Leicester City star could be available in the transfer market. According to reports from Dean Jones of Give Me Sport, the midfielder has attracted interest from several clubs and the Gunners could be one of them.
Dewsbury-Hall has had an impressive season with Leicester City in the Championship, with the team hoping for a quick return to the Premier League. The Foxes lead the Championship table with 72 points, an 11-point lead over Southampton. The 25-year-old player played a key role in this success.
Arteta wants Dewsbury Hall
Despite interest from several Premier League clubs in Dewsbury-Hall before January, Leicester City were unwilling to let him go. However, with the team likely to be promoted to the top flight, the midfielder’s price could rise, which could open the door for the Gunners to attempt to sign him.
Although Fulham and Arsenal were linked with the player in January, no move materialized at the time. However, with Marco Silva looking to strengthen his squad for the future, Fulham could be back in the running in the summer market. Meanwhile, Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Dewsbury-Hall and could consider him as an option to strengthen their midfield.
Dewsbury-Hall’s impressive numbers this season, ten goals and as many assists in the Championship, make him a player in demand. For Arsenal, the chance to sign a player of his talent at a potentially cheaper price than other key midfield targets could be an opportunity not to be missed. However, we will have to wait and see whether the Gunners finally confirm their interest in the young Leicester City midfielder.
