Arsenal linked with summer move for 28-year-old PL star

Arsenal are considering a swoop to sign Willy Boly from Wolves as manager Unai Emery looks to bolster his defensive options in 2020, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Arsenal are keeping a close eye on the 28-year-old star after his strong start to the new season with his club.

The Frenchman played the full 90 minutes and helped his side to keep a clean sheet as they sealed a shock 2-0 win against Manchester City at The Etihad on Sunday afternoon.

Boly has netted one goal and made one assist in nine appearances across all competitions for Wolves so far this term.

According to the same story, Gunners boss Unai Emery is looking at defensive variants and potential signings after having landed David Luiz on deadline day in the summer transfer window.

The same article claims that Arsenal are on the lookout for reinforcements in the defence after they conceded 11 goals in all competitions this campaign.

And central defender Boly is understood to be an option for the north London heavyweights as the January transfer window draws nearer.

Meanwhile, the club are up to third in the PL table after having sealed a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth on Sunday thanks to David Luiz’s first-half goal.

Meantime, Borussia Dortmund are  set to join the Gunners in the race for Celtic starlet Karamoko Dembele’s signature, Bild reports.

The winger, just 16 years old, made his first-team debut last campaign in a 2-1 win against Hearts.
