Arsenal are in the market for a defensive midfielder in the January window, one of three positions they are looking to strengthen as they target a Premier League title win for the first time since 2004.
Reports on Sunday claim that Arsenal have asked to be kept informed of any developments around Bamba’s availability should his club decide to sell him. The player is valued at around €3.5m but Vitoria Guimaraes are said to have priced him at almost 10 times that at €32.5m.
How he has any price when he isn’t for sale is a question for another day.
Bamba can also play as a centreback on the left or right and is under contract until 2026.
In fact, both pieces are nearly identical yet neither list a source for their information so it’s not clear where it’s coming from.
Arsenal have been scouting Bamba while both Villarreal and Atalanta are said to be interested, too. Apparently.
