Almost Agreed – Arsenal closely monitoring Serie A defensive duo

Unai Emery wants to strengthen a suspect backline, and Germán Pezzella was linked a be a strong option.

The 27-year-old defender missed out on Argentina’s World Cup campaign despite an assured first season with Fiorentina but is very much in the plans of new manager Lionel Scolari, starting the four matches immediately after a disastrous season, with La Albiceleste conceding just once in that time.

Having shown the strength of character to lead his team following the tragic passing of former centre-back partner Davide Astori earlier this year, Germán Pezzella has become a fan favourite with the Viola for a good reason.

Another strong player when it comes to an aerial battle, the Argentina international has won more than any other full-back in Serie A this campaign at an impressive 66 per cent success rate and ranks fifth in the league for interceptions.
