Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is said to be keen on bringing in quality reinforcement to both Arsenal’s defense line and the striking department this summer. The Gunners have already signed Granix Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach to sort their midfielder problems but there still exists needs in the striking and defensive department.
On the striker front, Arsenal already triggered the release clause of Jamie and are now only waiting for the player to make up his mind on whether he will be joining Arsenal or staying put at Leicester. While on the defensive front reports claim Arsenal are planning a bid for Napoli’s Elseid Hysaj who is reportedly available for £15 million.
The 22-year-old players as right back but is versatile enough to play in the centre back positions as well. Wenger reportedly sees Elseid Hysaj as the replacement for Mathiue Debuchy who is said to be on his way out of Arsenal this summer after spending the last six months of last season on loan at French Ligue one club Bordeaux.
Elseid Hysaj was a key figure in Napoli’s team last season. He played in 37 og their games in the serie A and created two assists. He will be expected to compete for a first team shirt at Arsenal with Bellerin who looks like the certain first choice. At least for now.
