Bid ACCEPTED, Medical Planned, Arsenal Agrees 5-Year Deal For CB

Although it appears like Jamie Vardy will not be joining Arsenal, Arsenal have however moved in on their second summer signing and have got a bid accepted for what will be their second deal of the summer according to a report by football insider.

According to football insider, Rob Holding is just a few details away from becoming an Arsenal player. The 20, old centre back was linked with a move to Arsenal months ago. It was reported that a bid of £750,000 was initially rejected according to reports but Arsenal went back with another bid of £1.5million which is now accepted according to the report by Football Insider.

The powerful ball playing centre back was a bright light in a poor season for Bolton Wanderers. His solid performance despite Bolton’s relegation earned him a place in the Championship team of the season. He will reportedly undergo a medical with Arsenal this weekend and should it be successful, he should be officially announced by Monday.

The player already reportedly agreed personal terms with Arsenal two weeks ago. The player will reportedly sign a five years contract with Arsenal. He will most likely be the long term replacement for Per Mertesacker who has just one year left on his contract.
