Arsenal Plots Ghoulam Raid

Posted: Jun 26, 2015 at 12:01 am   /   by   /   comments (0)

Arsenal is reportedly lining up an £11 million move for Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam.   

Ghoulam was linked with Chelsea in January and Manchester United are thought to have considered moving for the Algerian as a replacement for Patrice Evra last summer.

The 24-year-old eventually moved to Italy from Saint Etienne but reports suggest the Gunners have kept tabs on the player.

Rafa Benitez is said to be keen to take the player to Real Madrid after leaving Napoli at the end of the season.

But Eurosport claim Arsenal remains the frontrunners for the defender’s signature.

It is claimed that Napoli would accept an offer in the region of £11m, however reports suggest the team has previously rejected a similar bid from Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger already has Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal at his disposal and another left-back is not thought to be high on the French tactician’s agenda.
