The Gunners have solely focused on the midfield and defense when it comes to their transfer dealings.

This has resulted in them buying five players who fit into those departments while not a lot has been said about their interest in the forward area but that could change with Arsenal interested in bringing in Kingsley Coman from Bayern Munich, according to reports in the Bein Sports.

New boss Unai Emery has not closed the door yet when it comes to new players and perhaps there is a reason behind Coman being linked with the Gunners.

At the moment, Arsenal do not really have an out and out winger with the only player who comes close to that being youngster Reiss Nelson. The report claims that Unai Emery is keen on the player.

The £44m price that Bayern Munich want for Coman seems to be the major obstacle for Arsenal to clear but if there are any outgoing players, that will boost their pursuit. Emery was asked about signing more players, and he made a very interesting observation.

He said: “We signed the players who we need, only if one player is a big opportunity for us to sign we can do it.

“In this moment I think the squad is complete… To sign [a player] in the next month? Only if he is a big opportunity.”

Coman would possibly fall into that category of a big opportunity as he is a young, exciting player who has already made a mark for himself at the highest level. It is not easy to play for clubs such as Juventus and Bayern Munich but he has been able to impress whenever he has gotten a chance.

The Frenchman has struggled with injury in the recent past but his talent has always been apparent. Perhaps if Emery is able to convince Coman to come to the Emirates, it will provide a boost to his career. He will fit in well with the squad that is already here and his directness as well as the blistering pace that he has will be a real asset.
