Arsenal midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga has admitted he is unsure about his future in north London.

When asked about his plans for the 2023/24 campaign on the YouTube channel Wonhee Hyung, Lokonga replied: “I don’t know. I will try to go somewhere where I can play so that’s the most important thing for me – to have some games and play game after game.”

Arsenal want to wrap up moves for Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber before they fly to America next week for their pre-season tour, according to the Evening Standard.

football.london reported back in January that West Ham United captain Rice was the north Londoners’ priority target for central midfield, with Mikel Arteta a huge admirer of the player. Since then, Arteta’s side has seen two bids for the 24-year-old rejected by the Hammers before the two clubs agreed on a £105 million fee in principle last week.
