Unai Emery planning new-look Arsenal defence with signing of 22-year old Centre-back


Arsenal boss, Unai Emery, is still plotting a transfer move for at least one more star player this summer as he bids to get Gunners back into one of the coveted top four slots this new season.

According to a report from The Daily Mail, the Gunners have shown an interest in Abdou Diallo and are set to make a move on the player before the end of the summer transfer window.

Arsenal reportedly came close to signing the powerful defender last summer, before his move from AS Monaco to Mainz. However, the Gunners have gone on to monitor his progress during the previous season to see if he’s still a worthwhile purchase.

Unai Emery is determined to get his Arsenal side back into the Champions League for the 2019/2020 season. However, this won’t come easy when you consider the number of top teams currently in the Premier League, who are all jostling for a spot in the top four. However, the best football pundits and tipsters are backing Arsenal’s new boss to deliver the goods for the Gunners this new season. With moves like this, this transfer seasons is offering up some very interesting changes. With all football betting systems, you need to keep abreast of the changes to make sure you how this will affect betting on Arsenal – or even betting against them. So, is Diallo good enough to make a big difference in the team’s chances of a top four spot?

Diallo has some very impressive suitors as he has wasted no time to establish himself in the German Bundesliga.

He has also represented France in each of their domestic levels up til the U21s and has managed to rank amongst the most highly rated players in the domestic circuit in his country.

This tough-tackling defender is well known for his commanding display on the pitch, his man-marking ability, and also his ability to read the game well enough to close down spaces in dangerous areas as well as his capability of finding teammates with long balls and short passes.

The report adds that Diallo is also being targeted by other top English sides as well as other clubs across Europe. However, with Arsenal vice-captain Laurent Koscielny out of action till December and the retirement of captain Per Mertesacker, the youngster would have enough playing time to prove himself worthy of a first team shirt under Unai Emery.
