Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal are interested in signing Lille right back Sébastien Corchia, according to reports.
Transfer Market Web claims the French right back is being targeted by Wenger who is keen to strengthen his squad this summer.
First choice right-back Hector Bellerin is being linked with a move to Barcelona. Although Arsenal are reluctant to let him leave, several names have been touted as possible replacements.
Corchia has been able to impress with his performances despite a poor season at club level and has obviously done enough to catch the attention of Arsenal, Southampton, AS Roma, Wolfsburg as well as Torino.
He has been ever present in Lille’s fixture this season, constantly running up and down the right flank.
At 26, he has made over 300 league appearances and obviously has garnered enough experience to play at the top level.
No one can tell if Arsenal are truly interested in the defender but if we are, it is unlikely he will come in as a replacement for Bellerin. It could also be that we have no interest whatsoever in the defender but the media is just using our name to drive up interest for the French man.
Whichever way, he will be welcome at the Emirates if Arsenal decides to pursue his signature.
