Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger
Arsenal have been monitoring the talented centre-back throughout the Championship this past season, as he starred despite their relegation.
They have seemingly been sufficiently impressed what they have seen from the young defender, despite the fact the Trotters ended up in League One.

According to the Sun, they have made an official £1.2 million offer for Holding, with that deal including performance related add-ons to boost that price.

The same report indicates that Wenger is confident of completing the move and making him their second signing of the summer transfer window.
They completed a big money move for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka this week in what is gearing up to be a busy summer for the club.
Many are anticipating that there will be a number of arrivals at the club and Gunners fans will surely be hoping that there are bigger names than Holding arriving at the club.
