Just as is the case with any other top club, Arsenal get linked with numerous players day in day out. Some rumours raise eyebrows, some seem realistic while some are there just for the sake of it. In this segment, we will take a look a look at all the major advancements that happen in the transfer world concerning Arsenal.
With Per Mertesacker in the final few months of his playing career, Arsenal are expected to sign a centre-back in the summer. The Mirror reports that Arsenal have identified Ajax’s Matthijs De Ligt, who is also FC Barcelona’s top defensive target.
De Ligt is one of the most highly rated youngsters in the game at the moment and is garnering rave reviews since making his Ajax debut last year. He recently made his international debut against Portugal. De Ligt is termed by many as Gerard Pique’s successor in Barcelona.
Arsenal do have a task in their hands if they are to lure the teenage defender right under the noses of Barcelona. But the lure of playing in the Premier League and a regular starting berth may make Arsenal’s case easy to sign De Ligt this summer.
