First summer signing? Arsenal prepare bid for high-rated defender

Report states North London giants Arsenal are interested in a deal to land Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

According to British media reports, the Gunners are keen on a swoop for Crystal Palace right full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka this coming summer transfer window.

The Sun is claiming that Arsenal are keen on signing the 21-year-old defender this summer window and could be ready to include some players to sugar-coat the deal for Crystal Palace.

As per the same report, the gunners could add the likes of Reiss Nelson or Ainsley Maitland-Niles in an attempt to sign Wan-Bissaka later in the summer.

The same report suggests that top Gunners scout Brian McDermott went to scout on Wan-Bissaka playing last week as Arsenal look to try and lure him to The Emirates Stadium.

However, the report also says that West London club Crystal Palace is likely to ask for a transfer fee of about £40m for him, which could be a major issue for Arsenal.

The defender has been in brilliant shape for Crystal Palace this term, creating two assists in 27 English Premier League matches for Palace.

Considering that youngster Maitland-Niles is generally regarded as one of the gunners most promising talents, it appears unlikely that Arsenal would be set to let the player go as part of a swoop for young Wan-Bissaka.

Only time will tell, if the gunners will complete this reported deal when the summer transfer window opens.

Meanwhile, the North London giants Arsenal will return to League duty on 1 April when they welcome returnees Newcastle United at The Emirates Stadium.
