Ornstein Reveals Arsenal Are Considering Surprise Move For 27 Year Old Defender

Following on from his confirmation that Arsenal are pursuing Willian, the Athletic‘s David Ornstein has also revealed that the Gunners are one of a number of clubs interested in signing Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings.

It is believed that head coach Mikel Arteta is keen on signing a left-footed centre-back and the London club have identified the England international as a possible candidate.

However, Ornstein does raise doubts over whether Arsenal could afford to sign Mings with Villa likely to command a big fee for the 27-year-old:


“I understand there is interest in Tyrone Mings from a couple of big Premier League clubs. Arsenal like him too, but whether that manifests itself in a bid, whether they could afford the sort of fee Villa are looking for is a completely different matter.”

Pablo Mari is also left-footed and it is believed that the Spaniard will be signed on a permanent basis very soon, but it seems Arteta is looking for another defender who can play a similar role.

Other left-sided centre-halves, like Lille’s Gabriel Magalhaes, have also been linked with a move to the Emirates in recent months suggesting it is a key area that the club are looking to improve this summer.
