Arsenal Set To Swoop For Wolves Stalwart In January As Emery Targets Defensive Reinforcements

Arsenal are interested in signing Wolves centre-back Willy Boly in the January transfer window, according to the Sun. The Gunners are keen on strengthening at the back following a poor start to the season defensively.

Manager Unai Emery already has five centre-backs in his squad, and despite recruiting David Luiz in the summer, the Spaniard is looking to reinforce his defensive options.

Boly has been at Wolves for three years, having initially joined from Porto on loan before making the move to Molineux permanent in 2018. He has made 91 appearances for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and he is a key member of the first team.

At 28 years of age, he isn’t necessarily a youthful replacement for the likes of Sokratis (31) and Luiz (32) but Emery isn’t satisfied with the performances that his current first-choice defenders are offering him.

Wolves are expected to fight tooth and nail to keep hold of Boly and it remains to be seen if Arsenal would be able to come up with an acceptable offer for the centre-half.
