Arsenal prepare £50 million bid for Serie A star

Arsenal have joined in Manchester United and Chelsea in the race for Greek defender, Kostas Manolas and are prepared to bid £50 million for the defender, according to Corriere della Sera (h/t the Express). 

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the defender in the past, firstly when he was at Olympiakos and again last summer, during the Gunners’ desperate race for a defender. The Gunners’ instead opted to splash the cash on Shkodran Mustafi. 

Manolas has had a superb season for Roma this year and has been a big reason why the capital club find themselves in second in Serie A. Arsenal will have a fight on their hands if they want to sign the defender in the summer, as Chelsea see him as a replacement for John Terry, while Mourinho is said to want him and Lindelof.
