Arsenal are keen on strengthening their defensive line with the hope of contending for the top four positions in the English Premiership.
Amidst rumours and speculations going round for the past weeks now linking Chelsea Gary Cahill to the north London club, Torino defender Nicolas N’Koulou is the latest name to be linked with a move to Arsenal.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery is keen to sign N’Koulou in the January transfer as he bids to strengthen at the back, according to reports in Italy from Calciomercato.
N’Koulou, at the age of 28, would certainly provide the experience that Emery is looking for in what could also be one of the bargain deals available throughout the January transfer window.
The defender has shown an impressive performance at Torino this season and interest in his services is believed to be rising and gaining momentum.
Emery is in the market for a central defender following a string of injuries at the Emirates this season and it is believed that he is out for a more experienced option.
Torino, on the other hand, is desperate to keep hold of N’Koulou for the remainder of the season as they try to secure European football, but a move to Arsenal may be too good to turn down.
Whatever the case may be the outcome of the January transfer will be the determining factor.
