According to a report from Football Insider, Luton Town plans to recruit Albert Sambi Lokonga before the deadline for this year’s summer market. Luton want to sign Lokonga on loan from Arsenal.
The future of the Belgian midfielder becomes a big question mark in Arsenal’s shirt. The 23-year-old star has no place to act under coach Mikel Arteta. In the second phase of the 2022/2023 season, the Belgian midfielder played for Crystal Palace on loan but did not leave a special mark.
Returning to Arsenal, Lokonga faces fierce competition for positions. The appearance of rookie Declan Rice significantly narrowed Lokonga’s opportunity to play. Saying goodbye to Arsenal and looking for a new destination becomes a reasonable choice at this time for Lokonga personally.
A number of European teams are linked to Lokonga. Luton emerged as the team leading the race to recruit the Belgian midfielder. The current contract between Lokonga and Arsenal will expire in 2026. In total, Lokonga has made 73 appearances for Arsenal, contributing 3 goals and 7 assists.
