Arsenal have reportedly opened talks to sign Bayer Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba.

According to Italian Journalist

Gianluigi Longari

,

Tapsoba

is on top of the Gunners’ shortlist as they are looking to strengthen their defense with

David Luiz

set to leave after his current deal expires at Emirates.

As per the report, the Gunners are interested in a deal for the 22-year-old, and they are close to securing it. There is no fee mentioned but it could take more than £50 million to take him from

Leverkusen

.

The Burkina Faso international joined the German club from

Vitoria Guimaraes

in January of 2020 for €18 million and has established himself as one of the top center-backs in Bundesliga.

Tapsoba comes with everything that a club desire from a modern center-back. He’s quick, physical, good on the ball, and reads the game well, while he also demonstrated in Portugal that he can score goals.
