Arsenal target two defensive starlets to bolster back four
Both players have been heavily linked to Arsenal in the past with Samba reportedly close to a move to the Emirates last January. However, the deal didn’t go through and Arsene Wenger’s side were criticised for their lack of defensive organisation which ultimately cost them the Premier League title.
If Arsenal are to land the centre-backs however, Wenger may need to break his record transfer outlay with Bolton apparently wanting around £17m for Cahill’s services while Samba could cost as much as £10m.
Arsenal missed out on one of their defensive targets, Phil Jones, who decided to join Manchester United.
