Arsenal are ready to bid £5 million to sign Sevilla defensive stalwart Federico Fazio. Landing the tall and powerful Argentine would be a bargain coup for the Gunners.
Fazio is likely to be a casualty of the La Liga's club deep financial woes. Arsenal would certainly benefit from adding Fazio to their ranks.
He is exactly the kind of rugged and combative stopper the Gunners need in defence. Adding his height alongside Per Mertesacker would strengthen Arsenal's ability to repel aerial attacks.
That's sometimes been a problem for the Gunners against certain English Premier League teams. Wenger's squads haven't always been ideally equipped to deal with long ball tactics.
