It is a major boost for North London side Arsenal as manager Unai Emery has been given the permission to land Italian Serie A outfit Torino central defender Nicolas N’Koulou this winter window, according to reports from Italy.
Although, it is not expected to be a free run for the Gunners with the involvement of Spanish La Liga outfit Sevilla in the race for the player as well.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Nicolas N’Koulou has been on Arsenal radar and this might just be the best time for the Gunners to land him.
Nicolas N’Koulou is known to be a very intelligent defender who knows how to read the game and make good use of intelligent tackles as well as his recovery strength.
The 28-year-old is regarded as one of the best defenders in the Italian Serie A which is the reason why the Gunners are keen on him to help solve their defensive crisis.
The North London side have got a poor defense this season and that is the major concentration in this winter window.
Suggestions are that Nicolas N’Koulou will jump at any opportunity to have him move to the English league as he has always looked forward to the challenge.
