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 desperately need to reinforce their squad before the winter transfer window closes in a few days.

Last summer, the Gunners strengthened their back line by signing two central defenders in the form of Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding.

With this, Arsenal need a natural left back for the long term and reports suggest that Wenger is targeting a Danish star.

According to Daily Mail, the French man side are weighing up a move to hire the services of Real Betis star Riza Durmisi. Klopp has sent scouts to watch the 23-year-old defender in the La Liga.

Riza is a versatile talent, who can effectively play anywhere on the left hand side of the field. This season, Betis have used him as a left back and also as a left midfielder. Moreover, he can be productive from set pieces as well.

Last season, in 29 league games, he scored 1 goal and provided 6 assists as Betis finished 10th. This season, he has featured in 14 games for the Spanish side and provided two assists.

As per the provided Daily Mail link, Durmisi signed for Betis last summer and has a release clause of 17 million pounds ($21.3million) in his contract.
