North London giants Arsenal will have to fend off the threat from Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona in their quest to sign one of the best defenders in the Spanish top flight this season.
Getafe defender Djene Dakonam has been in superb form for his Madrid-based club this season.
His performances for Getafe has not gone unnoticed with the best teams in Europe.
Dakonam and Getafe are having a fantastic season with the club punching above their weight in the Spanish La Liga this term.
Getafe are in fourth position on the Spanish La Liga table and they are on course to play Champions League next season.
Major European clubs Arsenal and Barcelona are said to be keen on signing Djene Dakonam.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery was at the Mestalla to run the rule over the Togolese centre back as he helped Getafe to a battling goalless draw against hosts Valencia.
Unai Emery and Arsenal have made the signing of a new centre back top priority ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
The Arsenal defence has been largely unconvincing in the Premier League this term with just six clean sheets in 30 games and Unai Emery wants to boost that area of the team ahead of next season.
