Arsenal were ripped apart by Manchester City in the final of the Carabao Cup and Arsene Wenger is now under immense pressure.
The north Londoners signed top players in the last two transfer windows but their performances have not been fruitful. The Gunners are currently 6th in the table and it looks highly unlikely that they will be able to finish in the top four.
As far as the transfers are concerned, Arsenal really need to sort out their back line by signing a top quality central defender in the summer transfer window. So far, in 27 league outings, they have already conceded 36 goals this season.
If the latest reports are anything to go by then Arsene Wenger wants to sign Uruguayan international and Atletico Madrid center half Jose Gimenez.
According to El Gol Digital, the French boss wants the club to make an effort to hire the services of the 23-year-old star, who has been a regular starter for the Rojiblancos this season.
So far, in the current campaign, the South American defender has featured in 26 games in all competitions, scored 2 goals and provided an assist as well.
The Spanish source have mentioned that it would not be easy for Arsenal to sign Gimenez because now, he is an important member of the team under the management of Diego Simeone. However, it is also stated that the player has got a release clause of €65million in his contract.
In your opinion, should Arsenal splash the cash to sign Jose Gimenez?
