Arsenal set sights on out-of-favour €25m Serie A defender

If it is one department Arsenal need improving, it is their defensive depth. After Gabriel Paulista left for Valencia for an undisclosed fee, per BBC Sport, Arsenal are crying out for another centre-half.

Nikola Maksimovic of Lazio has been limited to little game time for Lazio, so say Football Italia, and is looking to exit the Stadio San Paolo. The 25-year-old only joined from Torino last year on a €25m deal but could be the perfect player for the Gunners to recruit.

The Serb has only made two starts this campaign as he continues to struggle under manager Maurizio Sarri’s tenureship.

He has been capped nineteen times by his country since making his debut in 2012 and was once compared to possessing a style of play like Nemanja Vidic, so say Generazione Di Talenti.
