Confirmed: Arsenal on the Verge of Agreeing first winter transfer Deal

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.

Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico could join Arsenal in January after the club submitted an £8million offer for his services, according to reports in Italy.

The full-back, who was part of the Argentina squad at the World Cup during the summer, has emerged as one of Unai Emery’s top January targets after impressing in the Netherlands.

The 26-year-old has been a star performer so far this term with the Dutch giants enjoying a strong start to the season.

Newcastle were in hot pursuit of Tagliafico in the summer but couldn’t force through a move during the final days of the window.

And now, according to Calciomercato, Arsenal are ready to trump Newcastle again in January after submitting an £8million offer for the defender.

With interest in the Argentine continuing to grow, Ajax could well hold out for a lot more than the Gunners’ initial valuation as the race to snap him up in January hots up.
