Since German international Per Mertesacker has been injured, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking at all avenues for a central defender.
If Arsenal can rely on a bank account provided, the French coach does not want to spend a fortune in a purchase that was not originally planned, as the boss prefers to invest in an excellent striker.
According to report from a French source, DH.be, north London club have made a list of potential targets with two criteria: affordable but talent.
Among the different names, include that of Björn Engels. The Bruges back, which would have gone to the Euro with his national team Belgium if not without a last minute injury, has caught the eye of the Frenchman.
It is reported that the Gunners manager sees the Belgian international as a defender made for the Premier League.
While some sources already mention an offer of €15million, Engels is far from succeeding Thomas Vermaelen in the Arsenal defense. There is only one track among others if Wenger should fail in his priority, German Valencia Shkodran Mustafi, cannot be bought.
