After recruiting William Saliba last summer, Arsenal intend to do a double blow by recruiting the young defender of ASSE.
Against a central defense in ASSE at Arsenal?
According to several sources, the Gunners, who are keen to strengthen in the central defense, can thus continue on the offensive in the coming months. However, hiring the services of the 19-year-old player, partner to William Saliba since their amazing epic in Gambardella, will not be easy. And for good reason, much appreciated by his coach Claude Puel, he has just renewed his contract until 2024, a sign of his desire to continue his development in Forez.
However, ASSE encounters significant financial difficulties and can therefore be tempted to collect a significant sum in exchange for its young nugget. In this case, selling Wesley Fofana and repaying it on loans for at least one season, which had been done with William Saliba, could be an alternative to doing business for all parties. But watch out, Arsenal are not the only club in the ranks. Leipzig, AC Milan and even AS Monaco are still on the hunt.
