Manchester United, Arsenal, Wolves and Manchester City are expected to battle it out for the services of Benfica’s center-back Ruben Dias in the coming transfer window.
The four Premier League sides have not been too consistent with their performances at the back this season and they are all linked with the 22-year-old star player.
Though the Red Devils have obviously improved their attacking display since the return of Anthony Martial but the defensive unit has left so much to be desired despite the addition of Harry Maguire to the team prior to the beginning of the campaign.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous four games in all competitions, and they have failed to record a single victory during the four matches in review.

Under-fire Unai Emery hopes to improve his team’s defensive record in the second half of the season by luring the defender to the Emirates Stadium in January but he faces huge competition from Manchester City.
Injury-plagued Manchester City are without impressive Aymeric Laporte due to injury, which has caused some problems to the Cityzen’s defence.
However, according to Portuguese media source, O Jogo (via Sport Witness), Pep Guardiola has set his sights on the defender and he is in pole position for the €66m-rated star player.
Wolves are also in the mix as Nuno Espirito is certain about is chances of beating all suitors to his compatriot’s signature in January.
