Arsenal told to go and get the most “consistent on the continent” defender

Arteta is currently boosting his squad in order to challenge Manchester City next season. One position he wants to sort out once and for all is the Arsenal’s right-back role.

In Tomiyasu’s absence, Ben White has excelled in that position, but there is a notion, come next season the Arteta may prefer a natural right back in that position, hence the need to sign one. Tomiyasu cannot be trusted in that position, and he may have to fight for his future at Arsenal next season. Sacha Boey of Galatasary has emerged as the player wanted in order to be groomed to take over the Arsenal right back position.

Arsenal apparently recently made a £17.2 million offer to the Turkish Super League winners, but it was short of the 22-year-old’s asking price. The Turkish giants want at least 21.5 million euros to let go of the former Rennes man, whom Jonathan Johnson in his Caught Offside column, describes as the most consistent individual in his position on the continent.

“There’s not necessarily been a player in his position so consistent on the continent for quite some time now, and somebody like Boey with the profile that he has, could be very good for a club like Arsenal moving forward,” Jonathan said .

“He’s certainly able to get forward and chip in in terms of the occasional goal, but he also regularly provides assists and is a bit more responsible in defensive terms than a lot of players that you see.”

A £4.3 million disparity should be easy to reconcile. Many assume Rice, whom Arsenal is expected to bid for this week, will be the club’s first signing, but I believe Boey will be. Out of the blue, you’ll just hear that Boey is flying to London for his Arsenal medicals.

  1. I would rather see Fresneda. Valladolid have just been relegated so he should be moving on.

    We could be lining up Boey as second choice if that does not happen.

    We also have Norton Cuffy, only 19 but has notched up over fifty loan appearances in three different spells.

  2. Fresneda is superior to Boey, who is more of a RWB and not great defensively, and much better than Norton Cuffy.

  3. Tomiyasu and White are both a bit to defensive IMO so getting one more attacking in Boey will be a welcome but only after securing priority targets ie. Rice/Caicedo.

  4. 21 mill euros and £17.2 are very close.

    So we are NOT talking of a£ 4.3 mill disparity at all but only of about a million pounds approx.
    The article contradicts itself when mentioning figures.
    If accuracy means nothing to the writer, then why write an article at all?

  5. Would prefer to go for other positions as we have White, Tomiyasu and Norton Cuffy for RB position.
    Holding midfielder and left back are the priorities as most likely KT is leaving.
