The Gunners have reportedly made an enquiry as to the availability of another star from the Bundesliga. It is common knowledge that Arsenal could do with another centre back and according to As Italian football writer Emanuele Giulianelli, Arsenal have contacted Borussia Dortmund about the possibility of signing Neven Subotic.
The 27-year-old, who is said to be out of favour under current manager Thomas Tuchel, has recently confirmed he will like leave Dortmund. Dortmund are said to be willing to do busines if a bid in excess of $32.1 million (£25 million) is put in for the Serbian and according to reports, Arsenal is ready to pay this amount.
With Per Mertesacker ageing and looking like he will not get a new contract deal, it is understandable while Arsenal are in the market for another centre back. The experience and versatility of Subotic will be very useful to Arsenal if he ever signs for us.
And to be fair, £25 million is not too much to pay for a player of Subotic’s quality especially considering other players who are not as highly rated as he is have been sold for way more money than £25 million.
