Arsenal have been in the market for a very long time in search of a quality centre-back.
During Arsene Wenger’s reign at the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners were linked with a move for West Brom defender Jonny Evans, but all their bids for the player was rejected by the Baggies, who were – as at that time – battling to survive.
With the Baggies’ relegation to the Championship, Arsenal now stand a chance of signing the former Manchester United player as low as £3m in the summer.
However, Arsenal new manager Unai Emery seems not looking towards the Northern Irish player as he is reportedly making efforts to capture Freiburg’s defender Caglar Soyuncu in the summer.
In other Arsenal news, the Gunners are ready to make a £50m move for RB Leipzig’s midfielder Emil Forsberg in the summer.
Despite having one of his worst seasons for the Bundesliga side in the recently concluded season, the former Paris St-German boss has ordered the North London club to make move for his signature ahead of next season.
The Swedish international will no doubt be a perfect player for the Gunners’ midfield positions as long as he reaches his full potentials at the Emirates Stadium.
With Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey’s uncertain future, Unai Emery is making every move to ensure he captures the Swedish international in the summer.
