Mikel Arteta set to make a move as midfielder target rejects fresh contract offer from club

According to a recent rumor, Arsenal target Renato Sanches will seek for a move away from Lille this transfer window, citing links with a move to the Premier League.

Following a rough spell at Bayern Munich a few seasons ago, the 24-year-old star has been linked with a return to one of Europe’s heavyweights.

According to Sport Italia, the midfielder has put contract talks with the French club on hold in the hopes of securing a move away from Les Dogues as soon as this month.

In recent weeks and months, the Gunners and Liverpool have both been linked with a bid for the star.

With his contract scheduled to expire in 18 months, the Portugal international finds himself in a strong negotiating position, with Jocelyn Gourvennec’s side eager to extend his stay in France.

Renato has continued to impress this season during his 13 Ligue 1 outings, despite his side’s relegation to ninth place, after appearing 23 times in their title-winning campaign last season.

Following a £31.5 million transfer to Die Roten when he was just 18 years old in 2016, he struggled to live up to the promise in the Bundesliga, and following a disappointing loan spell at Swansea City, he was sold to Lille in 2019 for about £18 million.
