Arsenal to fix Defensive issues with Argentina international
Premier League giant Arsenal, who are in dire need of rebuilding their squad this summer, will be keen on closing the gap between them and Manchester City and Liverpool following their poor performance throughout the season, experts in the field of football predictions
saw it happening for the London squad.
Manager Unai Emery has identified the centre defence being one of the key places needing a change this summer.
The Gunners summer signing from Borussia Dortmund Sokratis Papasthopoulos hasn`t been much of help this season due to his lack of consistency while 27-year-old Shkodran Mustafi is yet to up an intriguing performance for the club since his arrival.
With the central defence showing a lot of weakness, Arsenal have been linked with several defender ahead of the summer and the latest player to be linked is Argentine player Walter Kannemann, which is according to reports from Italian outlet Calciomercato.
The defender, who received his first international call up to the Argentine national team last year, is yet to player single football outside Gremio which could be a cause of concern for the Gunners who wants to sign him.
Reports from Sport Mole claims that the North London club has tabled an offer worth £10.5m for the Argentina international, with the hope of beating Torreira`s former club Sampdoria to his signature.
According to Spanish tactician Charlie Nicholas, the Gunners needs a whole new backline this summer ahead to compete in the Premier League next season. Many bookmakers give high odds in their bet of the day
for Arsenal going big this year in the transfer window.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "We need a whole new backline.
"I am disappointed that Petr Cech is retiring. I would have encouraged them to give him another year. Bernd Leno has got mistakes in him and would have benefited from Cech giving him a helping hand.
"We`re looking for four defenders, so on top of the crazy situation of letting Aaron Ramsey go for nothing, it is not great. They need two centre-backs and two full-backs."
“Hector Bellerin will come back and play right-back, as Ainsley Maitland-Niles could be pushed on potentially. Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Sead Kolasinac are good to have as squad players.
