Arsenal have contacted LaLiga giants Real Madrid about signing their defender Eder Militao.
Militao, 22, has had an unimpressive stint at the Bernabeu since his arrival last summer and Arsenal will reportedly try to bring him to the Emirates.
The Brazilian arrived at Los Blancos in a £44m move from Porto last July.
But the former Sao Paulo man has fallen behind the established centre-back pairing of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
And according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, Arsenal will try and land him in the next transfer window as part of Mikel Arteta’s new look defence.
Arsenal’s boss is keen to revamp his back line with replacements for Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis said to be high on his list.
But he will face competition for Militao’s signature as Manchester City are also said to have made contact with Madrid.
And in the January transfer window, Tottenham showed interest.
Los Blancos captain Sergio Ramos is said to be unhappy with Miltao’s contribution since his arrival and thinks it is time for him to go.
However, talented centre-half Militao has often been forced to play out of position at right-back on the rare occasion Dani Carvajal is injured.
In total, he has made just 13 appearances for Los Blancos all season, with a mere seven starts in LaLiga.
Despite that, Madrid are desperate to make a profit on him and reportedly told Jose Mourinho in January they’ll let him leave for £70million.
Mourinho is drawing up a list of replacements for Jan Vertonghen at Spurs, who is out of contract at the end of the season.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
