Arsenal keen on impressive Frenchman as Wenger will look to fend of Italians and get deal done

There has been some reports which have claimed Napoli are preparing to beat Arsenal to the punch and lodge a summer offer for Olympique de Marseille defender Nicolas N’Koulou, according to the SportsDirectNews website

The 23-year-old Marseille defender looks increasingly likely to make a move to a bigger club this summer, and Napoli have been the favourites to land him for some time.

However, it has now emerged that a number of English sides are set to step up their interest in him if he is available for transfer ahead of next season.

Arsenal have been linked with N’Koulou in the past, and it may be that the Gunners are among his suitors again as they may look to strengthen defensively in the next transfer window. © 2017 Frontier Theme
