Cameroon International Nicolas Nkoulou has reportedly emerged as a top defensive target for Arsenal, who are eyeing a £12 million January move for the Torino centre-back.
Arsenal’s defensive crisis has reached its peak, with Unai Emery’s side facing plenty of problems due to injuries and form. The Sun reports that the Gunners are chasing Torino’s Nicolas Nkoulou in a £12 million January transfer to solve their defensive issues.
The Cameroon captain has been in inspiring form this season, and Emery sees him as a quick fix to his leaky defence.
The 28-year-old has enjoyed a good season in Serie A, scoring twice. Torino are ninth in the table, but have conceded just 19 goals in the league, having lost just four times this term.
However, the report adds that Torino made it clear that the Cameroon international is going nowhere until at least the summer. So perhaps it may be a potential race that will only heat up once the season starts to reach a conclusion.
