Arsenal should reconsider Wolves defender Willy Boly, who was a reported target

Arsenal have a chance of moving up into the European positions of the Premier League table if they finish this season strongly, but like everyone else are waiting to hear when football can resume after it was suspended at least until early April due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

In any event, the Gunners have once again underachieved this campaign and need to try make sure the following season they can get themselves back into the top four, something they haven’t done since 2016.

Mikel Arteta will know he’s got a wealth of talent going forward at the Emirates Stadium, but no doubt they have to tighten up in defence and need some personnel changes at the back.

The Spanish boss has seen some improvements since he took charge in the backline, but surely he has to be eyeing defensive signings.

One player that Arsenal should consider is defender Willy Boly from Premier League rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers, especially as he was previously linked with them.

The Sun reported back in October 2019 that Boly was on the transfer radar of Arsenal and was a possible target of the club’s former manager Unai Emery.

Arteta may now be the man in charge at the North London club, but the Wolves powerhouse would be a super target for the summer transfer window.

Boly is the type of no-nonsense defender that would walk into the Arsenal XI and immediately improve it, that’s if his performances in the top-flight recently are anything to go by as he’s a real leader in the Wolves team.

The 29-year-old centre-back would add some much-needed aerial presence to the side and also some aggression when defending the box.

He was signed by Wolves for £10million (BBC), but his current contract at Molineux expires in 2021 and the summer could be a great time for Arsenal to try tempt them into a deal for him.
