Arsenal can announce first January signing as Right-back pushing to complete Emirates move
Arsenal may finally be able to secure the signature of a January signing, with Ajax’s Noussair Mazraoui pushing for a move.
The Gunners have been credited in having a strong interest in Mazraoui due to Mikel Arteta’s desire to provide competition for Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is the number one at the Emirates right now
Arteta also knows that he needs to add a bit more depth to a squad that is unable to put a team together if a few players get injured, and he is hoping that he is backed in the transfer windows.
Now it seems that Arsenal are free to wrap up a transfer deal for Mazraoui, as he wants to leave the Dutch giants
The Moroccan right-back is keen to leave the Eredivisie side, and thus Ajax have just a week to ensure they collect a fee for the 24-year-old or risk losing the player for nothing in the summer.
And the manager will be pleased by Mazraoui’s recent interview.
Asked by Dutch media what his plans are for next season, he responded: “That’s a good question.
“I think the chances of me remaining at Ajax are very small, maybe 5 per cent.
“I am open for something new, I have played here for 16 years and I think it’s a good moment to leave.”
It is always very difficult for players to come from Dutch football and impress in the Premier League, but if Arteta is just keen to add to his squad and provide back-up for the impressive Tomisasu, then Mazraoui could be decent.
He isnt that big named player that most fans would like to see arrive at the club, but he is a player that will do a very good job on the pitch when he is called upon by the boss.
He could be a bargain
