Arsenal keep a close eye on €30m-rated Premier League defender

Gunners still want to sign Man United centre-back Eric Bailly and ready to compete with Tottenham for the player. Arsenal have severe problems in the back-line as Laurent Koscielny already 33-year-old, and his back-up is necessary. The London club tried to add Ivory Coast international last summer, but the deal failed.

Spanish manager isn’t going to give up and preparing to make another offer in July when the transfer window opens again. It will be difficult to add him as Spurs also interested in signing him, and there will be a real battle for the footballer. His price could increase and become much more.

In this season, Bailly played just 17 matches in all competition and did nothing extraordinary for the club. It is a terrible result, and he should change the working place if he wants to get a regular place in the starting line-up. Eric joined the Red Devils from Villarreal in 2016 with a £34m deal.

He regularly plays in the national team which is already a significant achievement for the footballer. The 24-year-old defender has contracted with the English club until 2020, and his release clause is around £30m. Arsenal will do everything to add him this summer.

London club won the Europa League second match against Stade Rennais 3-0 and reached the quarter-final. They have to face Napoli, and it won’t be easy to achieve success against the Italian club. Gunners heavily linked with Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, Borussia Mönchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter, Benfica left-back Alejandro Grimaldo and Celtic footballer Kieran Tierney.
