RB Leipzig winger Emil Forsberg has once again been linked with a summer move to Arsenal.

German football journalist Raphael Honigstein is sure the Gunners will come back in for the 26-year-old after failing to sign the player last summer.

“He is still a guy who really wants to go to the Premier League. He was very upset when Arsenal’s offer was turned down straight away by Leipzig,” said Honigstein, cited by Calciomercato.

“I think (Arsenal) will come back in for him because he has got a lot of talent.”

The former Malmo man has been in and out of the RB Leipzig team this season and managed just two Bundesliga assists this term on the back on 19 last season.

Man Utd, Arsenal and Bayern Munich are all believed to be tracking the Sweden international, but he has denied there is a problem between him an the coach Ralph Hasenhuttl. 

“No, I have a great relationship with my coach,” he told Expressen. “I understand there will be speculation when I am not playing, but I am enjoying my time at the club.

“We will continue to write history and aim at winning the Europa League.”
