According to a report in the Mirror, Arsenal are interested in securing the signature of Ajax teenage defender Matthijs De Ligt.
With Per Mertesacker’s retirement imminent, and the fact that Laurent Koscielny is turning 33 later this year, the club are well in the process of rejuvenating the team’s back line. Shkodran Mustafi is an at excellent player, and at the age of 25, he’s about to enter his prime as a defender. Calum Chambers has hardly cemented a spot in the starting XI, but considering the time he’s been around, it’s very easy to forget he’s still only 23. Rob Holding turns 23 in September, while the Gunners’ first signing of the year, Konstantinos Mavropanos, is 20.
