According to L’Equipe, Arsenal have made an enquiry to Marseille over the availability of Jordan Amavi.
The left-back is also wanted by Crystal Palace and Napoli, as he finds himself out of contract with the Ligue 1 outfit in June.
Due to his contract situation, the Frenchman could be available for a cut-price fee.
L’Equipe say that, like his teammate Florian Thauvin, Amavi will not be extending his contract with Andre Villas-Boas’ side.
As a result, Marseille have two choices – lose him for nothing in June, or recoup what they can this month for the man who cost them £9 million.
If the Gunners do sign Amavi, then he would at least be familiar with football on these shores.
The 26-year-old spent a season at Aston Villa back in 2015/16, where he made ten Premier League appearances for the Villans, recording two assists.
Arsenal are on the hunt for a Sead Kolasinac replacement, as Mikel Arteta looks to find a deputy for Kieran Tierney.
The Evening Standard have linked Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand and Crystal Palace’s Tyrick Mitchell to the Emirates Stadium.
However, signing Amavi, who possesses Premier League experience and is also available for a cut-price fee, would be the wisest option for Edu, in our view.
