It has been claimed that ARSENAL are interested in a transfer deal for Crystal Palace star Marc Guehi
Over the last few seasons – Arteta has got this Arsenal side from challenging for a top six side into challenging for that Premier League title – something that nobody could have predicted.
There is still alot of speculation surrounding the players that Arteta will look to sign during the summer, especially now that they will be back in the Champions League.
That has led to some rumours in the media which have claimed that Arsenal and Manchester United are both ready to battle it out for the signature of Guehi – who has been impressing at Palace this season.
And add that to the concerns William Saliba’s back injury could keep the defender out for a long-time, then adding a new defender to the squad is high up on things to do in the transfer window, according to GiveMeSport.
Amid all the speculation – Jeremie Aliadiere recently claimed that Guehi would be a good signing for the club – He told Premier League Betting: “I think Marc Guehi would be a great signing. He’s been fantastic this season, he’s strong and he can play so he has every attribute to become a top player.
“Saliba and Gabriel have been fantastic, but when Saliba started getting injured, that was when things started going wrong.
“I’m not saying Rob Holding hasn’t performed, but at that level it’s little details that make a big difference so I think he’d be great.
“It all depends on what Arteta has in mind. Will he like to rotate or keep his starting-XI? But it’s tough to stay match-fit as a centre-back. As a forward you get chances to come on more.”
Guehi has been very impressive this season and it would be interesting to see if he could handle the pressure of playing for one of the big clubs in the Premier League.
And the fact that he would add depth to the squad for not alot of money – he could be a very good signing for one of the clubs.
