The Gunners have been busy this transfer window after they looked a little weak in the fag end of the previous year.

Recent reports have now suggested that the London franchise is keen on a move for a Premier League defender that is gaining some popularity this season.

Leicester City’s left back Ben Chilwell is on the radar of the Gunners and the Mirror reported that Arsenal have launched a fresh bid for the player.

The 19 year old came through the youth ranks at Leicester and has impressed many in this break through season for the Foxes.

He is predominantly a left back but is comfortable even on the other flank giving his team plenty of options and has attracted a lot interest from top European clubs.

Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United are also keen on signing Chilwell but Arsenal whose 3 million bid was rejected in the summers are understood to be keen on brining him to London before the end of January.

 

Nacho Monreal (29) and Debuchy (30) are the two left backs in the current Arsenal squad. With both players moving into their twilight, Chilwell will be a very important addition to this title challenging squad and will eye him as a long term replacement.

Ben Chilwell has made just 3 appearances for the Foxes this season and all of them have come in cup competitions.

Ranieri and his side have not been able to pen him down and the England U-21 international is now understood to be keen on a move away from King Power.

This sees Leicester in a situation where they will be happy to sell him this window and Arsenal are ready to pounce on the 19-year-old.

Will Chilwell help improve Arsenal’s squad?
