According to the latest reports from Italy, Serie A giants Napoli full-back Elseid Hysaj who is regarded as one of Europe’s brightest young defensive talents has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal with Wenger is keen on to strengthen defensive options.
Frenchman was impressed by Hysaj’s displays in Serie and the 22-year old continued his fine form during the Euro 2016, where he represented his country Albania.
Premier League giants Arsenal manager is desperate to strengthen his options in both full-back positions and believes versatile Hysaj, who can just as easily slot in on the left side, would give him exactly that.
While Spain teenager Hector Bellerin has been linked with his boyhood club Barcelona return it is believed that the Gunners are keen to sign Albanian star as a replacement for Spaniard.
La Liga giants Barcelona are also watching Albanian full-back Hysaj closely as they look to replace Brazilian defender Daniel Alves after he left for Juventus earlier in the month.
Chelsea and Manchester United are also monitoring Hysaj but without Champions League football Arsenal are favourites to sign him.
