Zlatan Ibrahimovic Could Foil Arsenal’s Bid for Sporting Striker Viktor Gyokeres

AC Milan’s Interest in Swedish Forward Poses Threat to Gunners’ Transfer Plans

Arsenal’s pursuit of Sporting striker Viktor Gyokeres in the upcoming summer transfer window faces a potential hurdle with AC Milan’s interest, fueled by none other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Mirror reports that AC Milan has entered the race to sign the prolific Sweden international, who has netted an impressive 36 goals in 39 appearances this season. Ibrahimovic, who returned to AC Milan as a senior adviser in December, could play a pivotal role in steering Gyokeres towards the Serie A club.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport reveals that both Arsenal and AC Milan are eager to secure Gyokeres’s services. While Arsenal appears to be leading the chase, Milan possesses a trump card in Ibrahimovic, who serves as Gyokeres’s idol.

The 42-year-old Ibrahimovic, who transitioned into a senior advisor role at Milan following his retirement from professional football, holds significant influence within the club. Milan is hopeful that Ibrahimovic’s mentorship and guidance could sway Gyokeres towards choosing the Italian giants over Arsenal.

As the transfer saga unfolds, Arsenal may need to navigate past Ibrahimovic’s persuasive presence if they are to successfully secure Gyokeres’s signature ahead of the upcoming season.
