Samuel Umtiti’s name mentioned in the context of Arsenal

L’Équipe report this morning that Barcelona central defender Samuel Umtiti’s name has been coming back into the conversation in recent hours in relation to Arsenal’s hunt for a centre-back.

They report that Technical Director Edu’s focus today remains signing 32-year-old Brazilian defender David Luiz from Chelsea, who refused to train with the Blues yesterday in an attempt to force a move to North London, after bids for Daniele Rugani (Juventus) and Dayot Upamecano (RB Leipzig) failed.

It would appear that the French international is a fall-back option to Luiz.
