Arsenal ready £50m offer to beat Liverpool to Bundesliga star

Arsenal are set to make a big money offer for RB Leipzig star Emil Forsberg, according to reports on Sunday.

Swedish publication Expressen claim that the Gunners will make a £50m offer for Forsberg “in the coming days”.

The attacking midfielder has been named in Sweden’s World Cup squad after enjoying a productive season with five goals and four assists for the Bundesliga side.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with Forsberg and SportExpressen recently claimed that Leipzig do not want to sell the 26-year-old and have place a fee of 550,000 Krona (£47m) on his head.

Leipzig are believed to be ready to offer him a new contract, despite only penning a new deal until 2022 in February 2017.

Forsberg sent speculation into overdrive last month when he tweeted “Thanks for everything” after he was sent off in the 5-2 defeat by Hoffenheim in April, which proved to be his final game of the season due to suspension.

The report claims the player’s agent Hasan Cetinkaya has had “several meetings” with representatives from interested clubs.
