Wolves fans react as Willy Boly responds when asked if he would join Arsenal

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Willy Boly has ruled out any chance of swapping the Midlands for north London and joining Arsenal this summer – and Wolves fans have reacted on Twitter.

Boly, 29, has become somewhat of a favourite at Molineux since initially joining the club on loan from Porto in the Championship – before that deal became permanent after promotion. He has clocked up 105 Wolves outings.

A £10million signing from Porto in 2018 (Telegraph), Boly has become renowned as one of the Premier League’s best centre-backs outside of the so-called top six. He has entered the final 12 months of his contract.

Asked to join Arsenal by a supporter during a Q&A session with BeIN Sports, Boly instantly ruled out a move to the Emirates this summer – but joked that if all Wolves players moved to Arsenal, he would join the Gunners.

“No, never. Arsenal is a very good team – everybody can see that. but, on paper, we are not afraid of Arsenal. I don’t have to go to Arsenal. Maybe if all the team goes there, I would probably be there,” Boly said.

The Gunners need a central defender this summer. Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz and Sokratis have all been below par this season, and The Sun claimed back in October that Arsenal wanted to sign the French defender.

Wolves supporters have reacted on Twitter to the news that Boly has ruled out a move to Arsenal when asked by a supporter to join the Gunners – and many are both relieved, and have praised the 6ft 4in ace.
