Roma’s Kostas Manolas is the latest defender to be linked with a move to Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.
It’s not the first time the 25-year-old has been touted as a possible target for the Gunners; the Greece international was rumoured to be on Arsene Wenger’s radar two years ago before he swapped Olympiakos for the Italian capital.
Manolas featured for Roma last night as Luciano Spalletti’s side – featuring Wojciech Szczesny in (and out of) goal – lost 3-0 at home to Porto and failed to qualify for the Champions League group stage.
As we’re all aware, Arsenal need to sign defensive reinforcements before the transfer window shuts in just over a week’s time.
If you believe everything you read in the gossip columns we’ve so far drawn lines through Messrs Mustafi, Toprak, Kjaer, Fonte, Gimenez and Evans and put Steve Bould on an intense training regime in case we need him against Watford.
Given Manolas’ profile, you suspect he might Kostas a lot.
Yeah, we’re getting our coat.
