Le10 Sport claimed earlier this week that Arsenal are interested in signing Borussia Monchengladbach’s Nico Elvedi this summer.
Arsenal’s hunt for a new centre-half continues, with a number of names linked with a move to the Emirates.
The hopes of signing players like Dayot Upamecano or Samuel Umtiti have slowly faded away, with new names like Axel Disasi and Unai Nunez making more headlines these days.
Nico Elvedi might just prove to be the best player Arsenal can sign this summer with respect to value for money.
The Swiss international will soon enter the final year of his contract, and Monchengladbach will have to settle on a cut-price fee rather than losing him for free at the end of next season.
Elvedi is one of the most promising defenders in the Bundesliga. Despite only being 22, he has enough experience having played over 150 senior games already in his career.
The youngster is strong in tackles and is brilliant on the ball as well as evident with his 91 per cent pass completion rate.
That is exactly what Mikel Arteta is looking for in his backline in his first full season in charge. Arsenal fans reacted to the news on Twitter and some of them would love to see Elvedi at the Emirates next season.
