Man City star very impressed with his Arsenal-target defensive partner at the Euros

If Arsenal needed further evidence that Marc Guehi could perform at a higher level, his performances for England at the European Championships in Germany provided it.

With Harry Maguire, England’s first-choice defender, out of the Euros due to injury, England coach Gareth Southgate had to find the ideal partner for Stones. Guehi, among the English defenders, emerged as the best option to join the Premier League champion in England’s defence.

The Palace defender has shone at the heart of the Three Lions’ defence. There have been criticisms of England’s performances, but Guehi has given a decent account of himself, hasn’t put a foot wrong, and has impressed his Man City defensive partner, John Stones.

I’m confident his performances have piqued the interest of many. According to reports, Arsenal is one of the clubs interested in his services. These transfer rumours are not new; he was the player they were reportedly looking to replace Gabriel Magalhaes with last summer.

Certainly, Gooners who have watched England games this season have received a sense of Guehi’s versatility in the back four, but even if they have, Stones’ rating of their defensive target is what they need to hear.

According to the Manchester City man, his national team defensive partner, Guehi, is so good and capable of playing at the highest level.

“So good, so good,” said Stones to BBC Radio 5 Live while rating Guehi’s start to the Euros.

“For him to come in, not having felt the feelings around tournament football before or these kind of games, all kinds of different emotions that come with it that you’ve never experienced before. He’s handled [it] so well; his performances have been great.”

Arsenal could use a flexible defensive addition, and Guehi appears to be the perfect candidate. He might bring a new dimension to Mikel Arteta’s backline.

  1. The cenrehalve Marc Guehi undoubtedly is a top quality defender. Who is proven at Premier League level. And emerging a trusted top centrehalve at international level for England at the Euro 2024 tournament. Who Gareth Southgate the 3Lions coach is putting his trust on him.
    But if Arsenal sign Victor Gyokeres at £86m plus adds on this summer. And then sign Amouduo Onana @30m per say. Then sign Nico Williams or Eberechi Eze @ £40 to 50m in this summer window as well.
    But will there be enough money left in the Arsenal’s summer transfer kitty for them to sign Guehi?
    For, after spending about £170m to sign Gyokeres, Onana, and Qilliams or Eze. That is assuming they signed those players.
    But what will be left in the Arsenal’s transfer kitty will be meager.
    And will not be sufficient to sign Guehi. Except if they do some outgoing sales this summer to raise funds and also balance the biiks to avoid PL FSR and FFP sanctions.
    As Arsenal’s simmer transfer kitty is reportedly to be £200m.
    Yes! I think if Arsenal wants to sign Guehi Onana, one of Williams and Eze and Gyokeres this summer, they can find the financial power to do their signings. I so believe.
