Arsenal handed a Rafael Leao transfer boost as AC Milan target a replacement in Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle in the January transfer window.

Arsenal handed Rafael Leao transfer boost.

Arsenal will need to sign a wing-forward ahead of next season to further complement Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus. Arsenal have seemingly already identified this player, and have potentially eliminated Chelsea as being a stumbling block.

According to Italian news outlet Tuttomercato, Chelsea are willing to compete to sign Rafael Leao from AC Milan. To secure his services a transfer could cost upwards of £100million, with £105million bids expected to be launched.


Considering the stardom of Leao, and Arsenal’s need for more forward reinforcements, Edu can throw his hat in the ring, as he did previously. And there is an extra incentive to do this as AC Milan could already be on the search for Leao’s replacement.

According to French news outlet Foot Mercato, AC Milan will make a bid to sign Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle. They want an initial loan with an option to buy. Both Saint-Maximin and Leao play in the same position.

These reports come after Leao said: “Experience in a new league? Yes, in the future… but now I’m 100% focused on AC Milan — it’s a top club and I’m under contract there. I like the city too.

“I watch many games. This year, I like Arsenal — they’re playing very well,” he said speaking to Speaking to RDPAfrica via Fabrizio Romano.

Arsenal reportedly registered interest in Leao early last season as Italian outlet La Repubblica claimed that the Gunners had turned their attention to the AC Milan forward for the summer transfer window. It is a deal that Edu could look to revisit, as Arsenal could be short in the wing positions going into next season.
