Arsenal hero Santi Cazorla has reportedly contacted Unai Emery’s side.
Arsenal hero Santi Cazorla has supposedly contacted Unai Emery and urged him to sign Villarreal star Pau Torres.
Cazorla enjoyed a glittering spell in north London prior to leaving in the summer of 2018 and has since returned to fitness and form back in Spain.
And 90min claim that Arsenal have been contacted by their former midfielder, with the Spain international reportedly telling Emery to move for Torres.
The defender has impressed for Villarreal this season, helping them to ninth in the La Liga table.
Arsenal have reportedly expressed interest in securing the signature of the 22-year-old ahead of the summer.
Torres supposedly has a release clause of in between £44million and £65m – but Arsenal want to strike a deal for less.
They are not, though, the only club interested in securing the signature of the young Spaniard.
Chelsea are also keen with Frank Lampard’s side hoping to strengthen their defence once their transfer ban comes to an end.
And Manchester City are also sniffing about.
Pep Guardiola’s side are a defender short after seeing club legend Vincent Kompany leave back in the summer.
City mulled over strengthening their backline shortly afterwards with Harry Maguire in their sights.
But the England international ended up moving to Manchester United instead and it looks like Torres is now their alternative.
Arsenal, meanwhile, need new defenders amid the struggles of David Luiz and Sokratis so far this season.
And former Gunners midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong believes that his old side should be looking specifically at Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.
