Arsenal manager Unai Emery is interested in landing young Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with the Gunners ready to offer a fee in the region of £40 million for the 21-year-old versatile defender, the reports say.
According to a British tabloid newspaper The Sun, Spaniard is craving a defensive ace that can drive forward and Aaron is the sort of player the former Paris Saint-Germain coach wants to bring to the Emirates Stadium, as the player has the potential to become one of the best young English defenders in the latest times.
Aaron has featured in 28 matches for the Eagles this campaign and the England Under-21 international has quickly become one of Roy Hodgson’s favoured man as the club look to pull themselves away from a relegation zone, and it would be safe to say the manager will be prepared to lose the prized asset, who has grown immensely this term.
While the Gunners are set to unleash an offer for Wan-Bissaka it might be Manchester United who could enter the race for his services as they are desperate to sign the full-back, considering the current situation at the back.
The Red Devils have Portuguese star Diogo Dalot as a young defender, but beyond that it’s South American Antonio Valencia and England international Ashley Young that are often seen operating down the right flank, so Aaron would be a perfect fit for the club, who are sure to bolster their team in the coming months after the exit of Jose Mourinho.
