Leaked: Arsenal Locked In Talks With European Giant Over Deal For £56million Centre Back

After failing to win the Premier league for over a decade, you’d expect a more pragmatic approach from Wenger in the transfer market. He probably is leaving it to the last week of the window to be able to get the players on a cheap price. *Sighs*

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are currently in talks with Uruguay international and Athletico Madrid centre back Jose Gimenez, as Arsene Wenger looks to remedy his defensive dilemma before the close of the window.

We reportedly agreed a personal terms with Valencia’s centre back Mustafi but negotiation broke down as we were not able to meet the player’s valuation. With the injuries with Per Mertesacker and Gabriel Paulista, our defense is left thread bare, condemning Wenger to sign reinforcements.

Gimenez has drawn keen interest from other top European clubs following  his stellar performance for the Rojiblancos. The 21-year-old centre back made 37 appearances for Athletico Madrid last term.

The player is valued at £56million but Sportmail is the claim that Arsenal have offered £40million for the player.
