Arsenal interested in Feyenoord defender Lutsharel Geertruida

Arteta’s side will be desperate to finally pip Manchester City to the Premier League title, having narrowly missed out in the previous two seasons.

The North Londoners are perhaps two quality additions away from bridging the gap and it seems the club are keen on bringing in a defender to bolster the backline.

According to Da Telegraaf, via SoccerNews, Arsenal are in the race to sign Feyenoord defender Lutsharel Geertruida.

The versatile 23-year-old, who can operate as a full-back, centre-back and even as a midfielder, is out of contract next year.

As such, Feyenoord are desperate to sell him this summer transfer window to risk losing him on a free transfer next year.

Geertruida is said to be available for £25m as Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur also circle for his signature.
