Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal have settled personal terms with Roma defender Kostas Manolas.
The Daily Express says Arsenal have made the move due to the advancing years of Laurent Koscielny (31) and Per Mertesacker (32).
Manolas has failed to agree a new contract with Roma, and it has been widely reported that they are now willing to cash in on the highly-rated defender.
Inter Milan are also keen, but the latest reports indicate that the move to Arsenal is most likely to go ahead.
Arsenal have now agreed personal terms with Manolas ahead of a €55m summer move.
