After a season of little improvement of the defensive problems Unai Emery inherited, Arsenal are set to strengthen their defensive woes.
After a dreadful loss to Chelsea in the Europa League finals in Baku, the Spanish manager looks set to gain £45million to overhaul and solve their problems at the back.
As such, a cut-off price target for Basel’s Eder Balanta will be a good bargain to help solve their woes.
He has just one year to run on his contract with the Swiss club and is valued at around £4m.
Balanta, 26, can operate in central defence or at left-back.
The Columbian made 26 appearance for Basel in all competitions and scored two goals for the Swiss Giants.
A move for the 26-year-old will well be in the budget as Unai Emery will be looking forward to competing for trophies in the upcoming season.
