Arsenal are seemingly on the hunt for a central defender.
Arsenal are reportedly working on sealing the transfer of a new centre-back for next season, according to a reliable source on transfer news.
The Gunners urgently need to improve on unconvincing defensive players like David Luiz, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi after a disappointing campaign, and it seems like work has already begun on bringing in an upgrade in that area of the pitch.
Fabrizio Romano has shown himself to be a trusted source on the goings-on in the transfer market in recent times, and he told a fan on Twitter that Arsenal are working on signing a centre-back, though he didn’t give a name…

Some fans will no doubt be hoping this is a big name, but the January loan signing of Pablo Mari shows it doesn’t necessarily have to be a real headline-grabber to be a successful deal.
Let’s hope the extended break from football due to the coronavirus pandemic means we’re able to put even more time and effort into good scouting and that helps us find more hidden gems like Mari.
Mari hasn’t proved anything, stop the hype.
Not Lovren. Not Smalling. Please. Why should Asn’l be an old peoples home for ex-footballers? We don’t want these guy who never were more than average during their prime. Now when they are using walker and uribag, all of a sudden they are looked upon as top signings for the Gunners. It’s grotesque! Why not transform Ashburton to a mortuary, then we can go for the real old fellas. Then we don’t have to sign youngsters like Lovren, Lallana, Willian, Smalling etc. We can have the old school superstars, the boys who have established themselves as experts in media. An expert in every position. What a starting XI! Go for it, Asn’l!
