Sky Sports reporting that Arsenal are in talks with ex-Lille star over transfer

Sky Sports have also added to reports that the Gunners are looking to complete the signing of a new defender within the coming weeks.

Arsenal agreed to say goodbye to Arsene Wenger following the end of a disappointing 2017/18 campaign which saw the team finish outside of the top four of the Premier League again.

With Unai Emery appointed as the new manager, a number of alterations are expected to be made to the squad before next season begins.

After a frustrating campaign from the Gunners’ defence which saw them concede more goals than ever in the Premier League, the new boss is likely to spend some money on improving that department.

Thus, Sky Sports have joined other sources in reporting that Arsenal are in talks with Stephan Lichtsteiner over a move to the Emirates stadium.

The veteran full-back, who kicked off his career at Lille after leaving his homeland Switzerland, is set to leave Juventus and possibly join Arsenal as a free agent.
