Transfer News Today: Arsenal Make Shock Move For League One Defender


Holding On For A Hero?

It’s not exactly Arsene Wenger’s style, but the Gunners boss is targeting a League One defender to shore up his back-line ahead of the new season.

Rob Holding, 20, was relegated to the division with Bolton Wanderers last season, but he could now be set to complete a dream £2.5m switch to the Emirates Stadium according to reports, with Wenger nipping in ahead of Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth to sign him.

Liverpool have been linked with a new name on Sunday morning, with the French press reporting that Barcelona’s French defender Jeremy Mathieu is on Jurgen Klopp’s radar.

Mathieu, 32, is believed to be surplus to requirements in Catalonia, and with Klopp on the lookout for an experienced centre-back then he could fit the bill.

The arrival of N’Golo Kante at Chelsea has left Nemanja Matic surplus to requirements, and the Serbian international is believed to be eyeing up a move to Juventus.

Matic, who was superb in 2014/15 but suffered a dip in form last season, now wants the switch to Serie A, and he could move for around £20m.
