Frenchman confirm Arsenal interest in getting Ligue 1 star signed up

Arsenal are reportedly lining up a summer transfer swoop for Ligue 1 star Aymen Abdennour, according to the Metro.

Centre-back Abdennour, 25, only joined Monaco last summer but is on Arsene Wenger’s radar along, according to French football expert Matt Spiro.

Abdennour, despite being tied into a contract until 2019 at Monaco, has been scouted on a number of occasions by Arsenal, according to his agent.

He would significantly strengthen Arsenal’s squad as they look to challenge for the Premier League title next season. © 2017 Frontier Theme
