Arsenal on the brink to agree deal for Torino key man

January 12, 2019

Serie A club Torino centre-back Nicolas N’Koulou is the latest name to be linked with a move to Arsenal after the end of the current campaign.

According to reports in Italy from Calciomercato, Unai Emery is keen to secure services of N’Koulou in January as he bids to strengthen their defensive end.

Emery is in the market for a defender following a string of injuries at the Emirates this campaign, and it is believed that he is favouring a more experienced option.

The 28-year-old midfielder would certainly provide the experience that Emery is looking for in what could also be one of the cheaper deals available throughout the January transfer window.

The centre-back has been impressing at Torino this campaign and interest in his services is believed to be rising.

Torino are desperate to keep hold of their star player for the remainder of the current campaign as they try and secure European football, however, a move to the Emirates Stadium may be too good to turn down
