Arsenal Football club have opened negotiations with Atletico Madrid over centre-back Jose Gimenez as Arsene Wenger steps up his chase for defensive reinforcements,’ Adam Crafton writes for the Daily Mail.

Arsenal’s defensive problems are well-documented – their three first-choice centre-halves were unavailable on the opening day – and Liverpool subsequently scored four in their victory. The club are pressing ahead over talks to sign Valencia’s Mustafi, but the bright athletico centre-back Gimenez has shown as another option.

He would cost around £40m, and his release clause is £56m. He is just 21, and might not be able to badge the needed goals that can keep the gunners in the title chase.
