Arsenal looking at South American La Liga defender

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Getafe defender, Mathias Olivera, as they keep adding new men to their squad.

The Gunners signed Nuno Tavares in the summer to act as a backup to Kieran Tierney.

However, the Portugal Under-21 international has been a bad buy, and the Gunners seem prepared to replace him in their team.

Olivera plays as a left-back, and he has caught the attention of several clubs in Europe.

He seemed close to a move to Napoli in the summer, but that deal is probably off now after Getafe changed the terms of their agreement.

Tuttomercatoweb claims the Spanish side wants to sell him for 20m euros now, and they want all the money in bulk.

This has opened the door for Arsenal to move for him, and the report claims the Gunners have a serious interest in his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We need players who can deliver consistently, and that is why Tavares may have missed his chance to become our main backup left-back.

If Olivera is much more consistent and accomplished, then we need him on the team, and Tavares can be sent out on loan to continue his development.

  1. There is a serious problem with Tierney which you can ignore at your peril. The guy is injury prone so there should be one who really competes with him at left back not a back up only. Arteta ‘s buys last July marginally improved the team.

    1. Not a fair comment even though factually true. We want the players to try their best in each and every game and injury could be the unfortunate but inevitable results. We just hope Tierney has better luck next year. We need a good and ready second chair of course.

  2. Mathías Olivera’s set to join Napoli on a permanent deal from Getafe. He will undergo medical tomorrow as new Napoli player. @MatteMoretto 🔵🇺🇾 #transfers

    The deal was verbally agreed since January and it’s now set to be signed with official statement soon.

  3. Every player in Europe is linked to Arsenal. The next thing you hear is that the player is gone somewhere else. As dull as arsenal is both in the transfer market and on the Field. That’s why we missed out on CL . When are we going to be playing as if every is at stake on every match day? The way Newcastle played past week

  4. Arsenal seriously confusing us we need to hear and see deal done but nothing till yet,now no news on Nunez where are we going on next season Ok let’s us see
