Arsenal Football Club Are Planning To Sign Another Defender (FULL REPORT)

Arsenal are interested in Reims centre-back Axel Disasi.

The 22-year-old has impressed this season in Ligue 1 and Gunners scouts have been monitoring him closely ahead of a potential summer bid.
Goal has learnt that Arsenal have now formally contacted the French side to register their interest in the defender, who looks certain to leave the Stade Auguste-Delaune at the end of the season.
Disasi has just one year left on his contract and won’t be extending his current deal, so Reims will allow him to move on rather than let him walk away on a free transfer in 2021.
The French side will demand €15 million (£13m/$16m) for the France Under-20 international, with several clubs across Europe keeping close tabs on his situation.
In England, West Ham and Southampton are interested, while Monaco are also keen to get a deal done. There is also strong interest from sides in Germany.
But Arsenal have moved to ensure they will be involved in the conversations as they believe Disasi ticks a lot of the boxes they are looking for in a new signing as they look to revamp their squad under head coach Mikel Arteta.
