The Gunners are eyeing to make a move for Kostas Manolas in the upcoming summer transfer window. Arsenal are desperately looking for a new centre back in the next season. In the previous season, they signed Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund. However, Sokratis Papastathopoulos was not able to perform his best in this season.
Mustafi is not playing up to the expectation level of the fans. On the other hand, their reliable centre back Laurent Koscielny is ageing. So, he club management must have to find a new centre back on whom the manager can depend a lot. Kostas Manolas is one of the most promising centre backs playing currently in the European football circuit.
According to the sources, many top European clubs are interested to secure his service in the next season. The Gunners are currently leading the race to sign the Greek defender in the next season. The talks with his agent Mino Raiola are now in advanced stage. The Gunners are ready to activate his release clause which might cost them around £36 million. AS Roma failed to qualify to the Champions League in the next season. So, Kostas Manolas is expected to leave the club in this summer transfer window.
