“€30 Million Is The Transfer Price” Arteta "Fights" Conte For This World Cup Defender

Arsenal's defence has been one of the team's strongest points under Arteta. Many people believe Arteta is pleased with his defence, but this is not the case. According to reports, Arteta is looking to bring in a left-footed defender to compete with Gabriel Maghales. As for who this defender is, we all know that Arteta had his eye on Lisandro Martinez during the summer, but Ten Hag beat him to the Argentine, who ended up joining Manchester United. Arsenal has moved on from the Martinez snub, and has turned their attention to Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapie.

Hincapie, 20, is a stalwart defender for Bayer Leverkusen and has established himself as Uruguay's first choice centre back (impressed in the Qatar World Cup). Arsenal wants him to continue his development at the Emirates, and the Bundesliga club may be forced to sell because the defender is attracting so much interest. If they sell, they could get around 30 million euros.

Arsenal can afford that price, but they must act quickly because Tottenham is also said to be interested in the transfer.
