According to reports from Italy, Wenger has made signing a defender in the January transfer window is number one target. And Martin Caceres is the number one defensive target in January if reports in the Italian media are anything to go by. The Frenchman failed with late interest in the defender in the summer but is prepared to go back for him in the winter.
Juventus coach Antonio Conte has repeatedly stated the South American is not for sale but Arsenal are ready to test the resolve of the Italian champions. However, they face from competition for the defender from Napoli.
Rafa Benitez’s side managed to beat the Londoners to the signature of Gonzalo Higuain and competed with Arsenal for Luiz Gustavo and Julio Cesar. The two sides, who also meet in the Champions League, are set to battle once again for Juventus’ Caceres.
Should the Old Lady be convinced to sell, they will be more willing to sell to Arsenal with Napoli being direct competitors for the Serie A crown.
