Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to beat Manchester United and Chelsea to the signing of Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam.
The Express is reporting that Arsene Wenger is a huge fan of the £11 million rated Algerian international and is prepared to make a move for him now even though he already has Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal in that position.
Here at Soccer Transfers we cannot get over the fact that we think secretly the Gunners and Liverpool have done a deal for Raheem Sterling that sees Kieran Gibbs moving to Anfield.
Why else would Wenger just for the sake of it by another left-back unless he knew he was going to lose one that he already has.
Time will tell on this story and it could well be that Wenger sees an opportunity to buy now rather than lose Ghoulam to another club or see his price rise dramatically should he have another good season in Serie A.
