According to talkSPORT, Arsenal are plotting a bid to sign Juventus full back Stephan Lichtsteiner and they could land him in January for nothing as his contract expires in the summer.
The North London club are in advanced talks with the 30-year-old whose future is very much in the balance as his representatives push for a move to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsene Wenger will have hit the jackpot if he can secure this signing in January as the Swiss international is capable of playing across the back four but his most comfortable role is at right back.
This means that if this switch were to happen, it would give Arsenal fans the opportunity to breathe a huge sigh of relief knowing that they have extra cover in defence, in a solid defender who has great experience.
Although it is a big ‘if’ as to whether or not Wenger will be able to tempt the player from Turin as he is still open to signing a contract extension with the Italian giants, having been with the Bianconeri since 2011.
But Arsenal and Inter Milan are leading the chase to land him should talks break down regarding a new deal with his current club.
Arsenal fans. If you did sign Stephan Lichtsteiner would you like to see more defensive additions, or would he be enough? Let us know your thoughts below.
