Arsene Wenger must sign a top class center back to strengthen his defense in the summer transfer window.
The Gunners had the second best defense in the Premier League last season but they still need reinforcements for next season.
Over the past few years, French defender Laurent Koscielny has been the leader of the Arsenal back line. Next season, the Les Bleus center back will most likely form a central defensive partnership with Gabriel Paulista in the starting XI.
Mertesacker may get the captain’s arm-band but he is past his best now and must be replaced. In such a scenario, Arsenal have the chance to sign a quality center half by luring Kalidou Koulibaly.
According to Goal, the Napoli star has been offered to top European clubs, including Arsenal. The Italian side are looking to get around 45 million euros (£37.5million) from Koulibaly’s sale.
Chelsea are also interested in hiring his services. Wenger must act swiftly and sign the 25-year-old Senegalese international. Kalidou featured in 42 games for the Serie A side last season and provided 2 assists.
