According to Mundo Deportivo (who appear to be referencing a story in The Sun), Arsenal are keeping tabs on Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis and could make an attempt to sign the Brazilian in January.
The left-back, once of Chelsea, will be out of contract at the end of the season and there’s a suggestion that Atletico could try and cash in rather than lose him on a free.
At 33, he’s far from a spring chicken, but he’s an experienced operator with over 30 caps for his country.
Luis’ situation mirrors that of Nacho Monreal, who is also out of contract at the end of this season. Monreal is six months younger and we like him. We like him lots.
So if we’re making a choice between the two, we’d rather give Nacho a new deal while we figure out if Sead Kolasinac is any good or not.
