Olympiakos centre-back
Kostas Manolas is
undergoing a medical at
Arsenal ahead of a move to
the Gunners, Goal
understands.
Manolas has attracted interest from Arsene Wenger,
who is targeting a central defensive signing before
the transfer window closes following the sale of
Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona.
As reported, the Gunners opened talks with
Olympiakos over a move for the defender earlier in
August.
Arsenal are understood to have been quoted a
transfer fee of €10 million for the centre-back.
Manolas is also wanted by Juventus, but the north
London side appear to have moved ahead of the
Italian club in the race to sign the Greece
international.
Wenger confirmed earlier this month that Arsenal
were in the market for a centre-back despite the
€20m signing of Calum Chambers, who featured
alongside Laurent Koscielny in the absence of Per
Mertesacker in the 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.
"Vermaelen behaved outstandingly last year - I am
grateful for him and I wish him very well," Wenger
said.
"If I can find another centre-back I will do it."
Mertesacker, meanwhile, has signed a new long
term contract at Arsenal.
