By | April 8, 2020

Arsenal are reportedly lining up a cut-price deal for Brondby starlet Anis Ben Slimane with the Danish side in desperate need for funds.

The 19-year-old talented midfielder has chipped in with one goal and one assist in four Superliga matches having broke into the first team in February, and Anis could now be set for a move to England.

According to Danish news outlet BT, top-flight outfits are expected to experience financial trouble because of the football season being suspended as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

They state that this could mean the Danish side have to sell their prized assets in order to balance the books, with Anis one of those who the club are ready to cash in on.

It has been stated that the Gunners are keen on tempting the player to North London having been impressed by what scouts have seen of him.

Anis – who has won youth caps for both Tunisia and Sweden – is said to be available for just £4.4 million.

During the January transfer market, Fotboll Skanalen reported that, as well as Arsenal, Manchester United and AC Milan delegations, were in attendance to watch Brondby’s pre-season clash against IFK Norrkoping.

Brondby attacker Simon Hedlund said after the game that the club were either watching Slimane or West Ham prodigy Sead Haksabanovic, who is currently on loan at Norrkoping.

Simon stated: “It was probably some younger players that the clubs were watching, either Slimane in our team or Haksabanovic.
