Thomas Tuchel once praised Arsenal target Thilo Kehrer during his days managing Paris Saint Germain.
According to Foot Mercato, the Gunners have ‘looked into’ the case surrounding the 24-year-old.
Kehrer joined the Ligue 1 giants back in the summer of 2018 for a fee believed to be £33m.
However, he endured a tough time with the Parisiens last season. The Germany international suffered numerous fitness issues, including a long-term adductor injury.
As a result, he played just 33 times across all competitions, missing out on Germany’s squad for Euro 2020.
Speaking about the full-back, the German manager lauded the versatile figure, claiming he is the sort of player ‘any coach would like to have’.
When talking about Kehrer, Tuchel said: “Thilo is a very committed player, very professional. I like his personality, he already has a certain maturity as he’s captain of Germany’s Under-21 side.
“He’s quick, able to play in any of the four positions at the back, is two-footed, and can even play as a defensive midfielder. He’s the sort of player any coach would like to have.”
TBR View: Kehrer would be an astute signing for Arsenal
Arsenal’s search for a right-back seems to be hotting up this summer.
According to reports last week, Hector Bellerin has agreed on terms to join Inter Milan. It leaves the Gunners needing a replacement right-back for the Spaniard.
Kehrer, PSG’s ‘rough diamond’, would be an astute signing for Arsenal amid praise from Tuchel.
The 24-year-old’s versatility makes him an outstanding target among the many who have been linked. His ability to switch between centre-half and right-back makes him an attractive prospect.
For the right price, Kehrer would be a great signing for Arsenal in their hunt for a new right-back.
