Arsenal could turn their attention from Bundesliga defender to his compatriot

Arsenal will reportedly turn their attention from Dayot Upamecano towards his compatriot Axel Disasi, according to Goal journalist Charles Watts.

Upamecano has been a long term target of Arsenal and the Frenchman was the subject of an enquiry by the Gunners in last summer’s transfer window.

Arsenal couldn’t sign him at that time and they moved for William Saliba instead, they have apparently remained interested in landing him especially as he will be entering the final year of his current deal at the end of this season.

However, Watts is claiming that the Gunners might struggle to land the RB Leipzig man even if the Germans reduce their asking price because of their poor financial state.

Watts then claims that the Gunners will now turn their attention to Disasi who has been in fine form for Reims and helped them finish in a very respectable position in Ligue 1 this season.

The defender is more than 6 feet tall and at the age of 22, he represents a player that has much room for improvement which is perfectly fine for Mikel Arteta since he appears to like the idea of developing young talent.

The Gunners would get Disasi for a much lower transfer fee than they would have to pay for Upamecano and that could be important as to which of the players joins the club.

    BOTH! We need them both. Both Axel and Dayot. You have to walk to Canossa, senior Arteta. Crawl on all four and beg the XXX Kroenkes for bread…

    I struggle to believe Upamecano rumours for this reason. Disasi would be a great addition and would represent the kind of business we will be doing over the next few years.

    Disasi
    Partey
    Edouard (if Auba or Laca move on)
    A couple of unknown youth prospects

    I’d be shocked if we managed any more than this.

      I’d rather a right footed left winger like Boga
      Instead of kluivert, rather we take Patrick Schick if we lose Aubamayang or laca

      Buendia
      Disasi
      Partey or Roca

      We move from here

      I can’t believe the upamecano rumours either,axel looks a more likely option and also it would be nice to have an attacking midfielder who might get 8-10 goals a season

  3. Marty says:

    So, the other day it was reported he was on his way to us after we agreed a fee for him and now it’s reported he’s not and we are now linked with someone else. All these linked with, interested in stories are just a complete JOKE.

    1. Thomo says:

      Marty I never believe the b s that is said especially from the daily mail whose favourite line is it’s a done deal
