Arsenal firm up their interest in La Liga target they really do need

Arsenal will look to speed up their interest in Sevilla centre-back, Diego Carlos after they got clarity over their financial situation following their FA Cup win, reports the Telegraph.

The Gunners had been hoping to win the FA Cup so that they can play in the Europa League next season, which will help them with more funds and make them more attractive to potential signings.

Now that they have reached Europe’s second club competition, they now have a better idea of what they can spend.

Diego Carlos has been one of the best defenders in the Spanish league this season, and he looks set to leave Sevilla with several teams looking to sign him.

Liverpool has attempted to sign him before now but they couldn’t pull it off.

Mikel Arteta will hope that he can use his Spanish connection to get the 27-year-old to the Emirates.

The report claims that the Arsenal manager is working closely with Edu to try and get the deal done.

Arsenal has struggled at the back this season, but they have already got William Saliba on board, who will join them for preseason, while Pablo Mari, who joined them in the January transfer window didn’t look out of place before he got injured.

Carlos’ deal at Seville expires in 2024 and his release clause stands at £68m.

    Fantastic player but unless Sevilla
    are forced to “Give him Away”
    because of monetary implications
    Raul isnt going to rubberstamp
    such an expenditure. Especially
    when the following quality CB’s
    are availble at lower prices…

    Malang Sarr
    Boubacar Kamara**
    Jonathan Tah
    Axel Disasi
    Abdul Diallo
    Ibrahim Kontae
    Lucas Klosterman
    Edmund Tapsoba***
    Nico Elvedi
    Manuel Akanji
    Ozan Kabak***
    MerihDemiral
    Nikola Milenkovic***
    Pau Torres
    Jules Kounde
    Unai Nunez
    Mouctar Diakhaby
    Issa Diop
    Lewis Dunk

    **My personal favorites 😁👍

      Are we really going to by another centre back when we have saliba to come in and just signed mari ,partey should be top priority and although I really like Willian where would he play

        Mari, Mustafi and CC will be
        be sidelined through injury
        when next season begins and
        MA has made it abundantly clear
        that Socratis isnt in his plans
        for next season. That leaves
        Holding, Luiz and the 19 year
        old rookie Saliba to log the
        majority of the early season
        minutes @ CB.

        Even If MA decides to employ a
        back three Kola hasnt impressed
        and KT is more valuable as a
        conventional LB or WB.

        Still think MA shouldnt be
        seriously considering a Top Class
        CB?

      I love your selections….We can get sarr ànd kamara or milenkovic, the two plus Mari, saliba, luiz, mustaphi is enough. Luiz goes and mavropanous comes back. We can bring up a generation from saliba, sarr, kamara or milenkovic, and mavropanous.
