Top 5 defensive targets for Arsenal this summer

    As Arsenal’s defensive problems go from bad to worse, it’s time to check out five defenders the Gunners could sign this summer.

    David Luiz’s disastrous 25-minute cameo against Manchester City reminded Arsenal of their growing need for a new centre-back. The Brazilian, who joined from Chelsea last summer, has been too erratic all season. So it’s not surprising to hear his time in London could end soon.

    Arsenal’s option to trigger the error-prone defender’s contract for another 12 months has expired, meaning Luiz will be a free agent this summer. But while the Brazilian is still hopeful of staying, the club may look elsewhere. Especially if he won’t agree to lower his £125,673 salary-per-week.

    Even Luiz’s exit won’t solve Arsenal’s problems, though. It’s no secret the centre-back position has been a constant thorn in their side for years, with defenders coming and going all the time. How Mikel Arteta plans to solve it will be decisive for next season.

    Of course, the Spaniard will welcome William Saliba to the fold next summer and intends to sign Pablo Mari on a permanent deal. But this won’t be enough if Luiz leaves.
