Arsenal may have finally found a solution to their defensive problems ahead of the upcoming transfer window in January.
The Gunners have reportedly identified Atalanta defender Gianluca Mancini as the man to finally solve their defensive crisis.
Arsenal have already conceded fifteen goals in their first twelve games in the Premier League this season in addition to just two clean sheets this term.
Those two shutouts came during the home games against Everton and Watford on Matchday 6 and Matchday 7 respectively.
According to the report from Transfer Market Web (TMW) via Daily Express, Arsenal have already scouted Gianluca Mancini with a view to a move when the mid-season transfer window starts in the New Year.
The North London giants have sent scouts to watch the Fiorentina Academy graduate in action for Atalanta.
The 22-year-old has featured eleven times for Atalanta in the new Italian Serie A season.
He has already scored three league goals with the last coming on Sunday in the surprising 4-1 thrashing of Inter Milan.
His impressive outings for Atalanta in the Italian Serie A have played a major role in his side’s ascent to the top eight on the Italian Serie A table.
The Italian duo of AS Roma and Inter Milan are also interested in the Italian centre back.
