Willy Boly is on Arsenal’s transfer radar after his impressive form at Wolves, the Sun reports.
Unai Emery is looking at defensive variants despite adding David Luiz just before the summer transfer deadline.
And the 28-year-old Boly has impressed during his three years at Molineux when he helped the club get into the PL.
The club would get a decent profit on the £10m they paid Porto and could double their money — but will attempt to keep the Ivory Coast defender.
Boly netted a dramatic late winner in Wolves’ 1-0 smash-and-grab win against Besiktas on Thursday and Nuno Espirito Santo’s also beat champions Manchester City in the PL.
Arsenal have well-documented problems in the defence and have conceded 11 goals in all competitions this campaign.
The North London side are still reeling from losing reliable defender Laurent Koscielny in acrimonious circumstances during the summer and landed erratic David from Chelsea.
He fell out with Blues boss Frank Lampard before the star left West London for their rivals up Holloway Road and the Brazilian defender is not seen as a long-term solution.
Sokratis is also 31 and isn’t getting any younger, while Calum Chambers finally appears prepared to step up with a regular berth in the Gunners team at the age of 24.
