Arsenal are on course to recruit a left back during this January transfer window.
According to the Mirror, the Leicester City’s left back Ben Chilwell is reckoned to be of interest to the North London club. The Metro goes on to say that both clubs are already in talks to complete the player’s move.
Further reports from the latter audaciously claim that the player could be announced by Arsenal next week.
The 19-year-old is currently on loan at Huddersfield Town but is set for a return back to his Parent club after the Championship game against Bolton.
The examiner reports that Leicester turned down a £5m bid last summer and with Claudio Ranieri insisting that none of his players will leave in January, it remains to be seen whether this deal will pull through.
However, Arsenal are looking to recruit more British talent are may recruit the England Under 20 skipper Chilwell, if the reports happen not to be spurious.
With Nacho Monreal repeatedly being linked with a move back to Spain, the young lad could yet happen to be his replacement. Only time will tell.
