It would not be a surprise to see Arsenal sign Manchester United defender Eric Bailly, according to Sky Sports pundit Steve Sidwell.
Arsenal could be forced to seek defensive reinforcements after suffering further injuries to their backline against United on Friday night.
And former Gunners midfielder Sidwell believes previous dealings between the clubs could hint at business this month.
Talking on the debate, he said:
We’ve seen them do deals before. We’ve seen [Robin] Van Persie, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, [Alexis] Sanchez, so I wouldn’t say no.
I think with Bailly, I look at him, I feel sorry for him at times.
It was just the inconsistency with how he played.
He had some outstanding games when you’re watching him the next time, he’d be really poor.
I think the times that he has been poor he’s just been overexposed.
That formation that Jose was setting up, the protection in front just wasn’t there and it left them exposed, the whole back four but individuals as well.
