Arsenal identify top transfer target to shore up defence

Arsenal have reportedly earmarked Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly as the man they want to fix their defence.

An unsettled back four contributed to the Gunners ‘ poor season as they finished sixth in the Premier League.

Koulibaly has spent four years in Naples, narrowly missing out on the Serie A title this season to Juventus.

And according to the Daily Express , the dominant defender is on the Gunners’ radar – but could cost as much as £50million.

The 26-year-old from Senegal has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the past but has so far reissted a switch away from Italy.

Whether he can be tempted to sign for a club not in next season’s Champions League however, remains to be seen.
