Despite the player having just signed a huge contract deal at Signal Iduna Park, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens of Borussia Dortmund is apparently being chased by Arsenal. Although the winger is currently committed to the Bundesliga team through 2028, the Gunners’ pursuit has not been stymied.
The little changes Mikel Arteta made during the summer transfer window have paid off, as his team is second in the Premier League and still unbeaten after eight games. With a 1-0 victory over Manchester City prior to the international break, Arsenal set the tone for their title defense.
The squad now has enough depth thanks to the arrivals of Kai Havertz, Declan Rice, and David Raya to be able to change up its lineup without suffering a loss in performance. But Arteta didn’t add any forwards to his squad over the summer, and the Spaniard is ready to improve his offensive ability in January.
Ivan Toney, a star striker for Brentford, has been widely connected with a transfer to the Emirates Stadium along with other star attackers. Although it shouldn’t be ruled out, the Gunners are reportedly quite interested in signing Bynoe-Gittens, according to BILD.
The 19-year-old is reportedly in the recruiting team’s sights as they organize their aspirations for January. The England Under-21 international has performed admirably for Dortmund when given the chance, making three Bundesliga games so far this season. There is a sense that he might be a valuable asset for the Gunners in the short and long terms.
When called upon by his team, Bynoe-Gittens has received great acclaim. Dortmund manager Edin Terzic told DAZN last season: “With him, it’s really fairly simple: he has the power to determine games. He is a game-changer, which is what I expected of him.
Dortmund’s success in persuading the former City youth star to sign a new contract with the team demonstrates their belief that they have another elite prospect on their hands that they will eventually be able to sell for a high price. Arsenal, who are already persuaded that he can offer a different option in the final third, are anticipated to attempt and seize the opportunity before his worth climbs.
In the latter half of the season, when the title fight really heats up, Bynoe-Gittens’ enthusiasm as a substitute could be seen as a desirable quality. He is capable of playing on both sides and could cover both Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka.
