Arsenal should sign world class defender Koulibaly after agent makes big announcement

Arsenal should make a move for Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly, as his former agent gave Premier League clubs a huge boost.

Centre-back Koulibaly is much sought after and has been linked with a move to Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid over the past few months after impressing on a number of ocassions for the Italian side, who currently value him at £100 million.

Arsenal were keen on the Senegal international last summer but a deal failed to materialise as Unai Emery did not have the required funds to complete a deal for the Seria A powerhouse, especially as he spent all his money on the likes of Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira and Sokratis.

However, Kouliably’s former agent has revealed on French TV that the imposing defender could be available for a slightly lower figure – still a massive £87.5m – at the end of the season, which has alerted a number of clubs in the Premier League.

“PSG already have plenty of central defenders,” Bruno Satin told was quoted on the Sky Sports website

“Maybe he can play at No.10, they already play Marquinhos at No.6.

“But if Koulibaly leaves [Napoli], he will not come to PSG.

“His transfer could cost €100m (£87.5m).”

Arsenal should try and sign Koulibaly.

The Gunners are one of the biggest and financially sound clubs in world football and need to acquire a few world class players if they are to regain the Premier League and get back to the very top of the game.

Emery should be backed in his transfer chases and if Koulibaly can be brought, then the Gunners should try to be at the front of the que.

Arsenal have ambitions and signing a world class player like Koulibaly, would help the side reach those ambitions in the coming seasons.
