Breaking: Arsenal sign Liga NOS centre-back as skipper nears exit

Arsenal have renewed their interest in landing defender Ruben Dias from SL Benfica this summer amid concerns that the French star Laurent Koscielny could head through the exit door, a recent report from The Mail claims.

Laurent has been an important figure at the heart of the Gunners’ defence over the past nine years, but the centre-back has recently refused to travel with the team for the pre-season campaign with the view to pursuing a new challenge elsewhere.

Amidst this, Arsenal are understood to be lining up a possible replacement and The Mail claims that Ruben has re-emerged as a transfer target for the north London outfit.

It’s added that the Gunners had compiled a scouting report on the centre-half earlier in the summer, but they were put off by the £54 million release clause present on the Portuguese’s contract.
