The London giants are reportedly interested in a move for Glen Kamara in this window as the Spanish manager pushes to add a midfielder to solve their shortages in the position. They will have to rival Aston Villa among other teams for the Rangers midfielder.
The Gunners are stepping up their attempts to add a reliable midfield option in the current window and have already been linked with several midfielders. The Spanish manager’s charges have been depleted in the position owing to Covid-19 infection, AFCON duty, injuries and suspension in recent weeks.
As things stand, Sambi Lokonga is the only available senior midfield option in the Gunners ranks after Xhaka received a straight red card with Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final first leg. There have been negotiations of a loan signing in the form of Arthur, although Juventus have yet to respond to a potential offer from Arsenal.
There has also been a story about the Gunners holding negotiations with Leicester for Tielemans in recent days, although that is likely to be a summer move. The primary focus stays on bringing in a midfielder that fits Mikel Arteta’s thought process for the squad.
The latest name to emerge is Glen Kamara, who was reportedly a summer target for the Gunners before he renewed his contract with the Scottish club around September. With the new deal keeping him tied at Ibrox until 2025, the Scottish giants have the upper hand in any potential talks for the 26-year-old midfielder.
