Arsenal added Nuno Tavares to their squad from Benfica last summer as a backup to Kieran Tierney.
The Portugal Under-21 international has failed to live up to the expectations we have of him.
Tierney’s injuries gave him more than enough chances to prove his worth, but his performances were mistake-ridden.
It meant we could not rely on him, and it even forced Mikel Arteta to play Granit Xhaka in the left-back spot at some point in the campaign.
The Gunners are now planning on signing a new left-back, with the Portuguese media outlet, Record, claiming they want Alex Grimaldo.
The Spaniard has been on the radar of the Gunners for a long time, and they could finally add him to their group this summer.
The report claims they have already reached out to his representatives regarding a transfer, and it could happen soon.
In a major boost to Arsenal, he could be available for as little as £6m, which is not a problem for the Gunners to pay.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Grimaldo has been at Benfica long enough to make an impact at any European club.
The 26-year-old was formed at Barcelona, and he has played in Europe for many seasons for his present club.
He will be a very experienced alternative to Tierney, and he could even beat the Scotsman to become our first choice.
