Arsenal are eyeing up defensive reinforcements ahead of the January transfer window, and it appears the club have set their sights on a Championship star.
The Gunners signed defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, snapping him up for a reported £17.6 million.
And with the winter window set to open, Unai Emery is reportedly looking to draft in another central defender in the shape of Ezri Konsa.
According to reports via Metro, Arsenal are prepared to launch a offer in the region of £15 million.
The 21-year-old graduated from Charlton Athletic’s youth academy and broke into the first team.
But, during the summer transfer market, he secured a switch to Brentford in a deal worth £2.85 million.
He’s produced for ‘The Bees’ with Premier League clubs keeping tabs on his progress, including Arsenal.
Konsa also made his international debut earlier in the year, featuring for England under-21’s.
He’s recorded five caps, scoring one goal.
Emery will be hoping to call upon his services and the Spaniard, meanwhile, has been improving his English by watching ‘Peaky Blinders’.
“I don’t know if it is an obsession,” he said.
Emery added: “In each profession, you need to feel passion for that in order to give it your best performance. Football is my passion.
“It’s my work, but I don’t think everyday what it is my work, it’s my best hobby. I feel very big the passion. I am doing my work with my desire.
“I can stay with my family, with my son, with my friends. Now I am watching an English series to improve my English. Peaky Blinders. It is good but it difficult (to understand), from Birmingham. And it’s very aggressive. But it’s good, it’s good.”
