Gunners keen on Dortmund defender

Transfers
Borussia Dortmund centre-back Dan-Axel Zagadou is on the wanted list of Premier League side Arsenal.

Borussia Dortmund centre-back Dan-Axel Zagadou is on the wanted list of Premier League side Arsenal.

The Gunners have put a new central defender high on their list of targets and reports claim the France under-20 international could be heading to the Emirates Stadium.

The 20-year-old broke into the Dortmund side last season when making 15 Bundesliga appearances, and his performances have caught the eye of Arsenal.

Zagadou stands at 6ft 5in and has all the attributes to be a success in England, while his composure on the ball has also caught the eye of Emery.

Zagadou, who has three years left to run on his current contract, can also play at left-back, and his versatility makes him even more appealing to the Gunners boss.

However he will not come cheap and it remains to be seen if the cash-strapped Gunners will be able to fund a deal.
