Lokonga Set To Join Ejuke At Sevilla

Arsenal midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga is close to joining Chidera Ejuke at LaLaiga outfit Sevilla this summer.

This is according to Italian journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Writing on X, Romano reported that Arsenal have given the green light to sell the 24-year-old and in turn, Lokonga is said to be keen on a move to Sevilla.

Talks are in full swing between Arsenal and the seven-time UEFA Cup / Europa League winners, with the value of the buy clause a subject of negotiations.

Arsenal signed Lokonga from Anderlecht back in June 2021 for a r£17.2million fee.

He arrived in north London as one of the best players in the Belgian top flight, having captained Anderlecht at the age of 21.

“I think Arsenal made a good decision on him and I think he is going to be a top player for Arsenal in the years to come,” Anderlecht sporting director Peter Verbeke said at the time.

However, Lokonga has failed to make much of an impact at the Emirates Stadium, and hasn’t played competitively for the Gunners since January 2023.

Meanwhile, Ejuke joined Sevilla this summer as a free agent after featuring for Royal Antwerp last campaign.

He becomes the first-ever Nigerian to sign for Sevilla.
