Arsenal Handed Major Transfer Boost As Sky Journalist Confirms £13.2M Rated Target Is “Very Open” To Move

Arsenal target Ridle Baku is “very open” to leaving Wolfsburg at the end of the season, according to Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg.

Both the Gunners and Chelsea have been linked with the right-back in the German press and, in addition to revealing the player’s transfer stance, Plettenberg has confirmed that Mikel Arteta’s side are keen on securing his signature:

Baku is an attack-minded fullback and you can see why Arsenal would be interested in someone of his profile, considering the options they have in the squad at the moment.

Ben White has been superb playing out of position but he is ostensibly a centre-half, while Takehiro Tomiyasu is a more defensively-minded player as well.

With Plettenberg claiming that Baku could be available for as little as €15m (£13.2m), it does seem like a smart piece of business, especially as he is also a fully-fledged international, having been capped four times by Germany.
