Report claims Arsenal is targeting London defender

Arsenal is reportedly interested in a move for Marc Guehi as they eye more players to add him to their squad.

The defender has been a fine signing by Crystal Palace from Chelsea and has even earned England caps.

Guehi is one of the top young players doing exploits at Palace and several top sides are eyeing a move for him.

Arsenal has some fine talents in their ranks, but the Gunners have struggled since William Saliba was injured.

The Frenchman’s absence gave Rob Holding a chance to play more matches for the Gunners. However, he has struggled to fill in for the former Olympique Marseille loanee.

This clearly shows Arsenal needs a new centre-back and Guehi could be brought in to act as a backup to their current first choices.

The Sun reveals he is one of the summer targets Arsenal has shown an interest in and will look to add him to their squad when the campaign finishes.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Guehi has been a fine player at Palace, which suggests he could do a job for us if we add him to our squad.

At 22, he still has so much to offer and we will be smart to add him to our setup from next season.

However, we should not expect too much from him and the jump to a bigger club might be hard for him to handle at first.

  1. Have not watch the kid but Arsenal need a next center back and the Croats international Sutalo is perfect to rotate with Saliba .

  2. This run-in has clearly illustrated how the Arsenal have evolved into a top-4 team this season (Which is what we all wanted at the beginning) but have not yet evolved into a genuine title-contending team (Especially if competing in Champion’s League as well). The fact that they are title contenders this season is an over-achievement. So if the others strengthen before next season starts, then to remain a title-contending side next season Arsenal will need to strengthen in all the positions where the back-ups are a long way off the first-choice player in the team (Saliba/Holding being a good example). So the benchmark for those staying at Arsenal and getting selected has been upped a lot this year.

    1. Tell you, the only reason Arsenal isn’t winning the league this season is because we let the pressure get to us, and not because we are not up to it or Saliba’s injury. We still can’t handle pressure. We had 2 draws from 2 goal lead and another one to the base of the table. Can that be just because of a single injury. If this happens again next season, questions will be asked even of Arteta’s ability to handle pressure. It is similar to stage fright, your legs feel weak you choke and stutter on every word.

  3. With two left footed centre backs in Gabriel and Kiwior, why would we bring in another?

    1. Hello Grandad, at the level I played, two LF or two RF CBs together, didn’t matter. But I was surprised and very interested in what you said yesterday, (that there has never been a successful team playing two LF CBs). Two RF CBs would achieve the same negative outcome then. I understand the logic of why it’s difficult but I’m not sure that it would be impossible to achieve successfully. Some players are so good that they can get over the awkwardness of a situation and achieve great things nonetheless. You are absolutely right about what you said though.
      I really do believe that professional players who train for hours every day and get paid exorbitant amounts of money should be able to improve their skills and adapt (e.g improve their LF or RF). Good talking with you.

      1. Thanks for your comments EG.Logically,you would think 2 right footed centre backs would be unbalanced, but in reality virtually all the great pairings have consisted of right footed players, probably because left footers are thin on the ground.Some years ago I remember reading an article which suggested that over 80% of professional footballers were right footed.That being the case, little wonder that a left footed duo has never hit the heights.

        1. Thanks Grandad. We also have Ben White who I enjoy watching very much, although at the beginning of last season when he played CB against Brentford he got bullied by Ivan Toney and was then considered to be a bit too soft to play CB. Almost immediately after that he was assigned to the RB position. I think that’s what happened if my memory serves me well. Tomiyasu can allegedly play anywhere across the back line. Kiwior is the mystery man. Is he really a player we should have signed. I don’t know as I can’t remember him doing anything extraordinary in the WC (World Cup that is , not the toilet). Probably unfair assessment because Poland weren’t great as a team. Do you know Spezia had an awful defensive record while he was playing there.
