With Arsenal conceding over 60 goals this season and Laurent Koscienly out for the next six months, The Gunners might have to go all out in the transfer window to get some defenders to bring some solidity to our back line.
In light of this, reports in the media says that Arsenal are looking at young Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt after he requested for a transfer this summer.
It was further reported that the likes of FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Tottenham are three of the big clubs that are also looking to land the ace.
However, Marin who was the journalist to break the news of Aubameyang joining Arsenal also mentioned Arsenal in his short list of clubs interested in him. He tweeted:
Y #Arsenal también… ? https://t.co/if6IodU24E

De Ligt has featured in 39 games and also growing to be a regular starter and although the Premier League is more challenging, it’s hard to ignore a young player who starts in every single game for his club at this level.
His style of play will no doubt fit Arsenal has his main strengths are passing and aerial but with no Champions League next season, it’s it’s yet to be seen if Arsenal will beat the likes of Barcelona, City, Bayern and Tottenham to his signature.
