Arsenal eyeing move for 27-year-old Southampton midfielder

By | May 5, 2022

Arsenal are competing with their Premier League rivals Manchester City and  Manchester United for Southampton star James Ward-Prowse, according to a report from the Daily Star.

Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are also rumoured to be keen on landing the services of the 27-year-old star.

The Sun have claimed that the free-kick specialist will cost £75 million, and that incoming Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag personally wants to bring him in and has already received the go-ahead from Old Trafford officials.

Fans are not surprised to see the Gunners, the Citizens and the Red Devils all linked with him. The Englishman is at the top of his game right now and is a very good box-to-box midfield player.

He has scored 14 times from free-kicks in the Premier League thus far in his career. James has been at the Saints his entire professional club football career thus far.

While James seems committed to his side, the chance to sign for a bigger club such as Mikel Arteta’s side and the 20-time English champions could be very tempting for him.
