Arsenal are on the lookout for top quality players ahead of next season.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push next season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best in the summer to achieve his target.
Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in the summer, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
One of such stars is Abdul Rahman Baba, who has been labeled one of the world’s best young defender, with the Gunners reportedly keen on landing his signature this summer.
According to popular German media outlet Blid, Arsenal have reportedly held talks with Abdul Rahman Baba’s agent over a surprise transfer.
The 20-year-old Augsburg full-back has been one of the stars of the Bundesliga season and is looking likely to move on this summer.
Chelsea have already made a bid for his services, while Real Madrid are keen, but Bild says Arsenal have entered the race and have held negotiations with Baba’s agent.
The player’s agent Sascha Empacher is believed to have travelled to London for negotiations with several clubs including the Gunners who are keen on a deal.
A powerful left-back, Arsenal already have options in both Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal, but Baba is seen as a rising star for the future.
