Report – Arsenal monitoring soon-to-be Ajax free agent

Noussair Mazraoui is one of the oldest members of the current Ajax squad as he has been at the Dutch club for the last 17 years.

However, this could be his last campaign with them as he enters the final few months of his current deal.

He can negotiate with overseas clubs from January and Arsenal could add him to Mikel Arteta’s squad.

ESPN says the Gunners are one club keen to sign him as they look to keep adding top players to their current squad.

However, he is currently in talks with his present club over an extension and Arsenal is monitoring the situation and ready to pounce if he becomes available.

At 24, the right-back has a lot of experience at the highest level as he has played for Ajax in both domestic and European competitions.

He also has a lot of experience in winning things at the highest level and that could be beneficial to Arsenal.

The arrival of Takehiro Tomiyasu means Arsenal has at least four right-backs on their book at the moment, including Hector Bellerin, who is spending this season out on loan at Real Betis.

We expect Mikel Arteta to sell the others and Mazraoui would be a good alternative to Tomiyasu.

    Mazraoui is OK at but at Elneny level, good but never gonna be cutting edge. A better option would be Max Aarons of Norwich who could challenge Tomiyasu like Tavares challenges Tierney.

    I agree about Max Aarons, a very good player at RB. That said, I would be sad if Chambers is sold or leaves, the lad plays his heart out for Arsenal, is versatile and home grown. He might have a bad game here and there but that happens to all players. Chambers can also play CB and DM.

      Yep he’s an asset. He’s versatile and counts for the homegrown quota. Would rather him on the books than other utilities like ElNeny.

    2. Johnze says:

      I agree. But look, arteta prefers playing cedric soares

  3. Jakes Mradu says:

    With ANM and Chambers do arsenal need another RB……?

  4. Gunners4life says:

    Lets forget about defenders for now. I would be more interested to see us sell pepe and get Sterling.
