Arsenal are interested in signing Sassuolo defender Sime Vrsaljko this summer as Wenger looks to strengthen the defense ahead of next season.

Vrsaljko, 24, is a versatile defender who plays predominantly as a right back but can also feature as a left back. The defender has been impressive for the Serie A side this summer and is now being touted as one of the best defender in Italian League.

According to Transfer market web via the Daily Star, Arsenal is seriously interested in the defender and has promised him a spot in the first team should he agree a switch to the Emirates.

This development raises doubts over the first team place of one of the Gunner’s current first team fullbacks but the report claims Monreal is more likely to be demoted to the bench instead of Bellerin.

Wenger is actively seeking a replacement for Kieran Gibbs who could leave the club this summer in search of first team football.

Wenger is a fan of versatile footballers and it won’t be a surprise should he sign Vrsaljko.

Juventus, Napoli, Bayern Munich, Roma, Barcelona and PSG are all interested in the defender.
