Gunners started negotiations with 21-year-old Swiss centre-back

Arsenal are interested in signing Basel defender Eray Comert and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. Gunners need a new promising centre-back to strengthen the back-line, and Swiss starlet is the perfect option in this situation. He had an impressive season and paid attention.

Unai Emery set to spend considerable money on the footballer during the summer transfer window. Several clubs also keen to sign him and there will be a battle for the player. Eray is a product of the Bebbi youth academy and spent his current career with them.

He is a very talented footballer and can become a top-class defender if he continuous improvement. In this campaign, Comert played 31 matches, scored two goals and made two assists in all competition. It is a fantastic result, and he can improve his consequences with high-class teammates.

The 21-year-old centre-back has contracted with the Swiss club until 2022, and his release clause is around €10m. Probably he will accept the correct offer from the Spanish manager. London club had a good result in the Premier League as they finished the tournament in a fifth place.

Arsenal also reached the Europa League final, but they lost 4-1 against Chelsea and missed the opportunity to get the Champions League ticket.

English club signed several footballers last summer like Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund, Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus, Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient. Gunners also added Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez this January with a loan deal.
