Arsenal and Newcastle keen on England defender that is shining at the Euros

Could Crystal Palace’s defender use the Euros to secure a move to the Emirates Stadium?

Despite the mixed reactions to England’s victory over Serbia, Marc Guehi of Palace excelled in that game. As the statistics suggested, he performed flawlessly.

96% pass completion
100% of tackles won
100% of ground duels won
2 clearances
1 block
His performance in England’s Euro opener will undoubtedly be one that earns him a big move.
As a player, his versatility makes him a comfortable CB on either side of the defense. He’s a bold player, very powerful, and a good dueller. His tackling timing and quality are outstanding, as is his sense of danger and anticipation.
Notably, if a tempting bid for the Brazilian defender had arrived, Arsenal considered replacing Gabriel Magalhaes with Guehi. Ultimately, Gabriel Magalhaes remained at Arsenal, while Guehi did not join.
However, that could change this summer, with Caught Offside reporting that Arsenal (and Newcastle) are eager to test Palace’s determination to keep the Englishman. Given Guehi’s versatility, Mikel Arteta’s fantasy defence could finally come to life.
Guehi, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Jurrien Timber, Gabriel, William Saliba, and Ben White could form a formidable defensive line-up. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta could always play one of the finest defensive blocks, whichever defensive line-up he sets up.

  1. Fine player that he is, another centre back would not be on my list of priorities particularly with Timber fit and ready to go.Indeed Guehi and Timber are very similar in that they are versatile, quick and positionally aware.There only weakness is that they lack height to be commanding in the air.

  2. Worth £50 million, maybe a swap deal can happen. Can play in a 3 man central defence, when seeing out difficult games, also you need at least 3 quality central defenders with all the cup games and European games, players including defenders need resting, plus it is good competition to get the best out of our defence and to inhibit complacency. Plus we don’t want our rivals to get the classy defender. Swap plus cash deal.
