Arsenal are said to be looking for one more centre back, despite the signings of Rob Holding from Bolton, and German international defender Shkodran Mustafi from La Liga last summer.

Arsene Wenger is apparently keen to replace Per Mertesacker, who has recently signed on for another year at The Emirates, and according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli we have agreed personal terms with Roma defender Kostas Manolas according to WhoScored.

The Greek international would be a great addition to our defensive ranks, although earlier this month, the aforementioned journalist also said in The Sun that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is ready to spend huge to compete with Arsenal for the player, but Roma apparently already rebuffed a huge £52m offer from the egotistical maniac manager.

The latest report from WhoScored now claims that the Serie A outfit WILL now allow the ace to leave the club to join Arsenal for a price tag of around £47 million.

As always, this window isn’t shut yet, so it seems a bit crazy talking about the next window, so once again, another story which seems very far-fetched indeed.
