Unai Emery sanctions move for £35m-rated star defender

The transfer window is heating up as clubs look to bring new signings that would improve their squads. Today we have transfer news that Arsenal are ready to make a formal bid for PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe.

Kimpembe has emerged as a potential target for the Gunners in recent weeks as rumours continue to abound regarding his future.

French news outlet Le10Sportclaims that PSG are interested in selling the young defender in the off season due to disciplinary problems with teammate Neymar. Arsenal is rumoured to be the likely destination for Kimpembe.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reportedly keen on the defender and has implored the board to sanction a transfer for the 23-year-old.

PSG value the defender at around £35million, which would take a significant chunk of the total transfer budget available for Unai Emery.

Is Kimpembe worth the fee? Definitely the PSG academy product has made improvements in the past 12 months.

He possesses the qualities that the Gunners lack at the back with his intensity and aggressive style of defending. Arsenal would have to splash the cash if they want to sign the highly rated centre back.

Arsenal are also linked with a move for another PSG defender, Thomas Meunier.
