The Gunners have received a swift response after an enquiry over the possible signing of a defender from one of the club’s main rivals in the Premier League.

Unai Emery has watched his side defend terribly for much of this season, despite managing to keep a clean sheet in the win over Chelsea last Saturday.

The Gunners have one of the worst defensive records out of all of the top six sides in the league this season and Emery appears to be keen on changing that.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have now made an enquiry over signing Eric Bailly on loan for the rest of this season.

However, Manchester United have swiftly responded by rejecting the Gunners’ proposal for now.

The Red Devils are in a serious fight with Arsenal for a place in the Champions League next season with both teams sitting outside of the Premier League’s top four at the moment.

The Gunners were interested in bringing Bailly to the Emirates stadium on a temporary deal with the view of a permanent move in the summer.
