BBC’s David Ornstein reveals Arsenal are working on signing £48,000-a-week star after goalkeeper’s deal
BBC journalist David Ornstein has revealed that the Gunners are now working on securing the services of another player, only days after the appointment of Unai Emery.
After announcing this week that Unai Emery will be the man to replace Arsene Wenger as manager, the Gunners are expected to focus on transfer deals.
A day after the appointment of the former Paris Saint-Germain boss, Arsenal managed to secure a move for promising young goalkeeper Karl Jakob Hein from Estonian side Nomme United.
The youngster may be viewed as one for the future but Emery appears to be keen on signing players with experience as well.
Thus, David Ornstein is reporting that the Gunners are now working on a deal to sign veteran defender Stephan Lichtsteiner this summer.
According to the BBC journalist, the deal for the 34-year-old, who is earning £48,000-a-week in wages (€55,000-a-week), would be free as Arsenal look to improve their options at right-back for the 2018/19 campaign.
