Arsenal target edge closer to Emirates move as Wengers men lead summer chase

There has been some reports which have claimed Arsenal could have the edge in the chase for Montpellier defender Benjamin Stambouli, according to the SportsDirectNews website.

It is no secret that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is looking to add another centre-back to his squad as Thomas Vermaelen is set to leave the club.

And the 23-year-old centre-back has become an important part of the Montpellier first-team in recent seasons, and his fine form this season has seen him attract plenty of interest from bigger clubs as the summer transfer window approaches.

Wenger manager remains something of a legend in French football, and has become well known over the years for giving opportunities to young players and improving their games. © 2017 Frontier Theme
