Samuel Umtiti

Arsenal has been linked with a number of players ahead of the reopening of the transfer window this summer.

Mikel Arteta became our manager when this season has already begun and the Spaniard has had to manage the players that were signed by his predecessors, having signed just two players in the last transfer window.

Ahead of what should be an unpredictable transfer window for the Gunners, we have been linked with a move for a number of players and one of them is Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti.

The Frenchman was one of the best defenders in Europe when he first moved to the Catalan side. However, injuries and poor form have hindered his progress.

The Sun reports that Barcelona will be auctioning out a number of their players this summer as they seek to raise cash for other signings, and Samuel Umtiti is one of the players that they will look to sell.

Arsenal has struggled at the back for some seasons now and although Arteta has made them a more solid side at the back, they have a need for better defenders as their current options keep letting them down.

If Arsenal can sign him and keep him fit, Samuel Umtiti might become our Virgil van Dijk.
