Transfer: Mikel Arteta wants Arsenal to sign former Chelsea star


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is reported to want the Gunners to sign former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori.

According to TBR Football (via Football Transfers), Arteta is keen to strengthen his defense and respects Tomori, who currently plays for AC Milan.

The newspaper added that Arsenal are already in contact with AC Milan over a potential deal that could see the England star move to the Emirates Stadium.

However, Arteta's side could face competition from Bayern Munich, who also respect Tomori.

Tomori came through Chelsea's youth organization before breaking into the first team under manager Frank Lampard in the 2019-2020 season.

The 26-year-old made 27 first-team appearances for the Blues but was sold to Milan in 2021 after being denied regular appearances at Chelsea.

He played a key role in the Rossoneri's Serie A victory in the 2021-2022 season.
