Grimaldo In Gunners Link
Arsenal are in pole position to sign Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo.
The Spaniard was on the Gunners’ watch list when he was at Barcelona. But according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid are both keen on the 23-year-old.
Gunners boss Unai Emery could use Nacho Monreal as the makeweight in any deal for Grimaldo.
Borussia Monchengladbach central defender Matthias Ginter is also back on Arsenal’s radar according to reports.
The 25-year-old was linked with the Gunners way back in 2014 when he was with Freiburg. Arsene Wenger decided against making a move and Ginter went to Borussia Dortmund. He left Dortmund for Monchengladbach in 2017 in a deal worth around €17million.
Ginter now has 23 caps for Germany under his belt.
Tottenham Hotspur are also being linked with Ginter.
