Desperate to land a defender before the transfer window closes, English giants Arsenal have made a surprise enquiry for Monaco’s versatile defender Marcel Tisserand. The 23-year-old can function as either a right-back or centre half.

Arsenal’s defence is in shambles following injuries to club captain Per Mertesacker and Gabriel. The pressure has mounted on Gunners boss Arsene Wenger after his side failed to win any game in the first two matches of the season. Wenger has been compelled to play young defender Rob Holding as the centre-back.

Meanwhile, La Liga outfit Espanyol were also hoping to sign the old DR Congo international, but according to reports in the Daily Mirror, the deal has been put on hold with the player hoping to see if the Gunners’ interest pans out in the right direction.

So far, Tisserand, has struggled to establish himself at the Ligue 1 outfit and has been loaned out to  Lens and Toulouse.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s hopes of signing Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi took a huge blow after the La Liga quoted him for £50 million, a price that Wenger is not willing to spend. They can also face disappointment in their pursuit of West Brom defender Jonny Evans as the club is demanding a whooping  £25 million for former Manchester United man.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
