Arsenal’s chances of signing Villarreal and Argentine central defender Matteo Musacchio appears in danger as their North London rivals Tottenham have made the defender a priority signing for the summer. The Argentine joined Villarreal from Argentina and has gone on to make over 200 appearances for the Yellow Submarines since making his league debut in 2010.
According to Fichajes, Arsenal, Tottenham, Barcelona and AS Roma are known public admirers of the defender who has been one of the few consistent defensive performers in the Spanish top flight.
Arsenal are targeting the defender to partner with Laurent Koscieny at the centre of the back and reinforce the team’s defensive steel which has been lacking for quite a long time at the club.
Personally, I would prefer we go for someone like Manolas or Mehdi Benatia. Both players are more experienced and would be better partner for Laurent Koscienly.
