With A €15 Million Transfer Hijack, Arteta Will Make Up For A Defensive Transfer Setback

A year after it was reinforced, Arsenal's left back has been identified as a position that requires reinforcement. Nuno Tavares was signed as Kieran Tierney's backup a year ago, and while he showed flashes of brilliance in his early days as a Gunner, his dip in form has become a source of concern, which Arsenal hopes to address with a loan exit. 

With Tavares' future at Arsenal uncertain, the club has been looking for a replacement defender. Aaron Hickey and Lisandro Martinez are being considered as left-back options.


So far, there has been no progress in signing the two. With both deals proving difficult, HITC claims Arsenal have identified Benfica's Alex Grimaldo as a left-back they can sign. Grimaldo has entered the final year of his Benfica contract, which he is not extending, so Benfica is looking to recoup at least €15 million from his sale, a €12 million drop from what they value him at. 

Arsenal will face stiff competition from the world's richest club, Newcastle, for his signature, but Arsenal will hope that the Europa League card that Newcastle lacks will win them the Spaniard's signature. (HITC)
