Fulham vs Manchester United tickets are on sale from £49 for the match at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
The London club are looking for a replacement for Brazilian left-back Andre Santos after a number of poor performances from the summer signing convinced the Gunners hierarchy of the need to search out alternatives.
Whilst Kieran Gibbs is expected to remain first choice left-back, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in reinforcements to ensure the club no longer have to rely on Santos as back-up.
That has prompted a move for Ligue 1 side Valenciennes’ Cameroonian international Bong, who has impressed many this season with some assured performances.
Bong would find himself joining some friends at the Emirates having previously played alongside Laurent Koscielny Olivier Giroud in the French Ligue 2.
Wenger remained cautiously optimistic about securing a deadline day move.
‘I’ll see what I can do. Gibbs was a big player for us going forward and in the game we want to play. I cannot promise you any transfers but we will work on it. We want an official extension of the window for one week.’
