Arsenal are ‘closing in’ on a deal for Lokonga according to BBC .

The Gunners are chasing the midfielder as boss Mikel Arteta attempts to bolster his midfield.

The Belgium youth international, 21, is expected to pen a five-year deal with the Gunners.

And the final details of his contract are being finalised.

Lokonga is expected to undergo his medical today, with potential further tests tomorrow.
