Another left back finds himself on the Arsenal radar

Jordan Amavi has entered the radar of Arsenal as they continue to look for a new left-back to support Kieran Tierney.

The Gunners have allowed Sead Kolasinac to leave the Emirates this month and now have just Tierney as a natural left-back.

After Mikel Arteta hinted that they would be busy in this transfer window, the Gunners have been linked with a move for several players.

Ryan Bertrand is the first left-back to be linked with a move to the Emirates, but Southampton is confident that he will sign a new contract with them.

L’Equipe via Sun Sports is now reporting that the Gunners have turned their attention towards signing Amavi.

He played for Aston Villa between 2015 and 2017 before making a return to France with Marseille.

He has been an ever-present in their team and helped them qualify for the Champions League at the end of the last season.

He will be out of contract when this campaign finishes and the French side has been trying to persuade him to sign a new one.

However, he is keeping his options open. Perhaps he will become the next Arsenal import from France.

Kolasinac hasn’t been convincing when he has played for Arsenal and will probably never wear an Arsenal shirt again.

    Why would any decent left back come to us to play backup to Tierney? Anyway I think we discovered a fantastic stand in last night.!

    Lol..
    Its almost as if the blogs and tabloids just scan for players in the last year of their contracts and then boom!!!.. we’re linked

      What do you mean “almost”! THAT IS exactly what they do!

  3. McLovin says:

    Amavi is not a,bad shout, tough tackleerrr. If he’s super cheap, could be a decent choice.

    But we need to get rid of Runarsson and then probably Mustafi.

    As it stands we need to delist one from the prem squad and 2 from the Europa squad. Signing anyone else would need to be homegrown under PREM rules and still wouldn’t count under Europa rules. So the best choice is still probably Danny rose of spurs, I say just stick with soares.. let’s see if we can loan out mustafi, runarsson can be 3rd choice in the EPL and delisted for Europe with one of the young keepers coming in as 3rd choice

    1. Terry Moore says:

      Danny rose good shout

  5. Gilberto Silva is awesome says:

    No way.
    We don’t have room for more foreigners. The backup left back has got to be a homegrown.

  6. websurfer says:

    No need to look elsewhere. We do have Cédric Soares. He simply did an excellent performance as left back against Southampton. IMO Cédric and Saka were MOTM.

  7. Reggie says:

    We desperately need a proper left back for when Tierney is unavailable but he should come from the youth set up. What is the point ifcwe cant at least produce a decent back up/potential. No player that is experienced will come as back and if they did, i would question their attitude. Or why not a player from the championship, young and promising.

    We must not look for new signings as backups, cos in so doing , we are bringing in poor quality prayers like Runarsson , so my opinion is to bring young prayers from the academy to give backing as they macure, cos pple like Runarsson, William they are bellow arsenal standard, cos u can’t compare william with heleb, Fabrigas, Bakarmp , kanu,etc he is the worst , he can’t run, he can’t aim at the goal , he can’t make any cross , cant make any through pass , he cant drible passed defenders in order to get free kicks in dangerous positions, so we need to use hungry young generation to fill up the gap when needed from our academy.thanks
