Deal Close – Arsenal to Complete another Star Signing

Arsenal Ramsey WengerArsenal have secured one of the best goal keepers in the form of Petr Cech and now want to reinforce the backline as well.

The gunners have quality defenders in the squad but Wenger still has to stregnthen further if the North Londoners are to challenge for the Premier League title next season.

In such a scenario, Arsenal are ready to let go left back Nacho Monreal and replace him with Napoli star Faouzi Ghoulam.

Spanish source Marca claim that Monreal will be leaving Arsenal this summer to join Athletic Bilbao while Gunners are closing in to sign the Algerian full back Ghoulam from Serie A side.

Monreal, 29, showed rejuvenated form last season but 24 year old Ghoulam surely is a better and long term option. The African star featured in 39 games last season.

As per the provided link, Arsenal have been in negotiation to sign the Napoli star and offered 10 million Euros to secure his signature.

However, the Italian side want more and now that the likes of PSG and Atletico Madrid are also interested, Arsenal aim to increase their offer to 12 million Euros to finally sign the defender.
