Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Real Madrid defender Nacho who looks set to leave the Bernabue outfit in this January transfer window and has been scouted by English Premier League side Arsenal who later pulled out of the race as no contact or further moves were made.
According to CalcioNews24 via TALKSPORT, Italian side Napoli has closed in on the defender and have reportedly agreed a contract with Nacho’s representatives. All that is left now is for a transfer fee between the two clubs to be agreed, which may prove to be a stumbling block for Napoli, with Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane reluctant to sell the 26 years old.
The same source claimed that Napoli are expected to lodge a bid for Nacho by the end of the week and remain confident they can secure a deal before the transfer window shuts.
There is no clear explanation for the Gunners pulling out on the deal for Nacho despite being on the verge of letting Mathieu Debuchy go on loan and were also on the look-out for another central defender but yet they pull out on a chance to sign the Madrid defender. Maybe Wenger has something “better down his sleeves” in the remaining days of the transfer window.
