According to a report from Italian outlet CalcioMercato, Arsenal are interested in Argentine defender Walter Kannemann.
They say that interest in him from Inter Milan and Sampdoria is complicated by the Gunners, with some suggestions that a £10m bid is imminent.
The 28 year old has spent his entire career in South America, starting with San Lorenzo in his home country, before a season with Atlas in Liga MX, before joining Brazilan side Gremio in 2016.
The fact that he’s in Brazil right now, and we’re widely believed to be appointing Edu as our new Technical Director during the summer, might lend some credence to the link, but right now it feels a bit like the usual summer bluster as the machinations of the transfer market get underway.
Kannemann, whose nickname is ‘The Filthy Pigeon’, has 5 caps for Argentina.
The Poo-o-Meter is ticking on this one, but let’s see.
