Arsenal transfers: Aleksandr Kokorin’s agent talks up Gunners move
Aleksandr Kokorin's agent hints that his client would be open to a transfer to Arsenal in the future
Arsenal have been handed a boost in their reported pursuit of Aleksandr Kokorin after the striker’s agent hinted that his client could be open to a transfer to Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners were touted as a possible destination for the Dynamo Moscow forward during the summer transfer window but a move for the player failed to materialise amid claims that the Russian club were unwilling to sell.
Now, with the January transfer window fast approaching, Kokorin’s agent has hinted that the 24-year-old striker could be open to a move away from the Moscow club, with Arsenal still a potential destination.
Agent Cyril Loginov told News Today: “Aleksandr, if all well informed, still has a chance [to move in the future] and not just to Arsenal.
“If Dynamo refused to give Aleksandr to Arsenal in the past transfer window, it does not mean that he can’t be where he wants [in the next window].
“We have a very good relationship with the coaching staff and the management of the football club Dynamo Moscow. We have, of course, been notified.
“I don’t remember many outstanding achievements [for Arsenal] except they recently won the FA Cup. So I don’t know, I don’t know.”
Arsenal return to Premier League action when they travel to Watford in the top flight on Saturday evening.
The Gunners are currently second in the table and two points behind leaders Manchester City after their impressive 3-0 win over Manchester United at Emirates Stadium earlier this month.
