Arsenal has been named as one of the clubs eyeing a transfer for Bundesliga man Djibril Sow as Mikel Arteta’s side keeps impressing.

The Gunners are at the top of the Premier League table now and they want to maintain that spot for the rest of this season and subsequent campaigns.

They know it will need them to sign some new men and they are now looking to take Sow away from the German side, Eintracht Frankfurt, according to Bild.

The report reveals several clubs have an eye on the Swiss star and the Gunners are one of them, with Frankfurt now struggling to hold on to one of their key men.

Sow has played three World Cup games so far and has continued to show he can be a good addition to the current Gunners side.

Arsenal now needs to prepare an offer that will be too good to turn down for his signature and it must be better than what others will offer.


Djibril Sow has become a mainstay of the Eintracht Frankfurt midfield, helping them finish fifth in the 2020/21 season before going far with Switzerland at UEFA Euro 2020.

One of Sow’s idols growing up was Thierry Henry, but the Eagles midfielder is a much more destructive player than the former Arsenal, Barcelona, and France star. The Eintracht man can play any role in central midfield, but being quick, powerful and good in the tackle means he is well suited to going box-to-box. His passing success rate of just over 90 percent also made him the ninth-best player in the league in that category in 2020/21. In that sense he is a bit like Bayern Munich‘s Goretzka, although Sow will need to add more goals to his game to truly match up to the Germany powerhouse.

Sow is not the only Switzerland international and former FC Zürich player in the extended family. His cousin Coumba is a midfielder who has played for the women’s national team. Both of their fathers are from Senegal, and the two future Swiss stars often played football in the playground together and at family get-togethers. “Djibi and I always went to kick a ball about,” Coumba once told Swiss newspaper Blick. “No one else in the family was as enthusiastic about football as we were.”
