Arsenal keen on Lens’ Lois Openda

The Premier League leaders Arsenal have reportedly set their sights on Lens striker Lois Openda.

Having bid adieu to Club Brugge last summer, the 23-year-old made the leap to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, where he has thrived under the guidance of Lens manager Franck Haise.

Openda’s impact has been undeniable, with an impressive tally of 17 goals and three assists in 32 appearances in the French top flight this season.

Arsenal supposedly registering their interest in acquiring Openda’s services during the upcoming summer transfer window. The Daily Mail suggests that the Gunners may launch a pursuit for the talented striker.

It is worth noting that Openda committed himself to Lens by signing a lengthy five-year contract upon his arrival at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis last year. Consequently, the French outfit are under no pressure to sell their prized asset, as his contract extends until the summer of 2027.

The Belgian international, who capped eight times by his country, endured a goal drought spanning eight games between January and March. However, he has since regained his scoring touch, netting an impressive eight goals in his last six Ligue 1 appearances.
