Arsenal Manager Keen To Finalise £25M Signing Of Highly-Rated Swiss Defender Who's Keen To Leave.

Arsenal manager is currently focus on rebuilding the the Gunners team by making quality signings that will add more depth to the squad ahead of their next season campaign.

The 38-years-old Spaniard is eager to bring back glory to his former club despite struggling to nail down an European Competition spot ahead of next season campaign. Mikel Arteta who took over the gunners job back in December has proven to be a coach that will take the north London club to the next level if quality players are signed, due to his impressive display against big team.

Meanwhile, the manager has been monitoring the current situation of Borussia M' gladbach defender Nico Elvedi, as a player that will bolster the back-line position ahead if next season.

The 23-years-old Switzerland international joined the Bundesliga giant back in July 1, 2015 after completing a £4m transfer deal from FC Zurich. However, his impressive form has made him a regular player at the Bundesliga club, and these has brought about elite Europe clubs to battle for his signature.

Nico Elvedi who play as a center-back, left-back and a right-back, has been featured in 39 appearances and has scored 1 goal so far in all competitions this season.

No doubt, the young will serve as a possible replacement for ageing David Luis who will face the exit door when his contract expire at the Emirates stadium.

However, the north London club has made the signing of a new quality defender as one of his top targets when the transfer window will be re-opened as he looks to strengthen his defensive ranks ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The latest report has stated that the the Swiss international emerged as a top transfer target for the North London giants, with Monchengladbach open to cashing in on the 23-year-old star before his current deal expires next year, as they risk losing him on a free agent.

Meanwhile, it adds that the young star will be available around £25m in the summer, although the Gunners could face competition for his services from Bayern Munich.

This will definitely serve as a long-term investment for the club due to his impressive performance and having age on his side.
