Arsenal’s links with relegated defender becoming firmer as “things could develop quickly”

It was revealed a few days ago by some obscure Belgian publications that the Leicester defender Timothy Castagne was seriously being considered as an alternative right-back signing, as the links we had with Real Valladolid’s Ivan Fresneda, who is now apparently being targeted by Borussia Dortmund, seem to be receding into the distance, with little progress on any discussions with the Gunners.

But now the possibility of the Belgian international Castagne coming to Arsenal is now being touted by the mainstream media, with RMC Sports reporter, Sacha Tavolieri, making public that Arsenal have opened talks with Leicester about a possible transfer, and revealing that “things could develop quickly”…..

To be honest, I would think that this seems like a much more likely transfer than Fresneda. Castagne’s versatility, being capable of playing as both a left-back and a right-back, makes him an attractive potential addition to Arsenal’s squad, especially considering that he has extensive Premier League and international experience (in a team that really needed to defend a lot last season!).

Also, the never-ending and ongoing injury problems being suffered by both Zinchenko and Tomiyasu makes it neccesary for Arteta to bring in a reasonably priced understudy that could be expected to have quite a bit of playing time, especially if the Tierney to Newcastle rumours come true….

Do you think this rumour is becoming a likely proposition?

  1. Not exactly Kyle Walker. Aim higher guys. You need to buy the best to beat the best, not enother squad player. “”/ To beat Arsenal you need skilful wingers, because Arsenal do not double defend against a winger entering there penalty area. They need to either change their defensive tactics where they double up to support their inadequate fullbacks , or invest in world class full backs, the like of Kyle Walker, not the squad player that is mentioned in this article. Although He may have future potential, but not what Arsenal need right now.

  2. Well Dan most certainly won’t like this one 😂😂
    Buying a relegated player😏😏
    Whatever next I hear AMN asking indignantly 😒😒

  3. Look at full backs and other players that scored a rating of 7 or better against Man City as well as the rest of the season as an average. That should be the benchmark for Arsenal buying players. Buy the best to beat the best otherwise it’s another wasted wage bill.

  4. Castagne would be a good buy for Arsenal. Not only does he have PL experience but is very flexible. With CL games in the offing and the congested fixture schedule considering the number of competitions Arsenal will be playing, game time will not be any problem for Castagne and he sounds like a proper full back.
