According to a report from The Sun, Arsenal are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Willy Boly as Unai Emery looks to strengthen his defensive options further.
The Gunners’ backline has caused Emery’s men plenty of issues this term. They have received major boosts with the return of Hector Bellerin and the emergence of Kieran Tierney, but there are still problems at the heart of the defence.
The Sun reports that Arsenal are planning to make a move for Boly. But it is not going to be easy to lure the 28-year-old away from Molineux.
It is suggested by The Sun that Wolves are keen to keep Boly, but could target doubling their money on the £10 million that they spent to sign him from Porto in 2018.
Boly has been a fantastic servant during his time with Wolves. He made 36 appearances during their Championship-winning campaign and in their first year back in the Premier League as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men qualified for the Europa League.
And he has proved to be a handful at both ends of the pitch. He has scored seven league goals for Wolves. And he opened his account for the current season with the winner against Besiktas this week.
Arsenal clearly need to strengthen at centre-back at the earliest opportunity. And if the chance to sign Boly for £20 million presents itself, Emery certainly needs to consider making a move.
