Arsenal target Matthijs de Ligt of FC Bayern Munich looks on during the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern München and 1. FSV Mainz 05 at Allianz Arena on March 09, 2024 in Munich, Germany.

Arsenal receive thumbs-up for shock Matthijs De Ligt transfer, Bayern Munich bombshell: report

Arsenal could be about to bring Bayern Munich star Matthijs De Ligt to the Emirates Stadium, in a blockbuster move. 

Despite announcing Takehiro Tomiyasu has signed a new deal, mere days after tying up Ben White, the Gunners require cover in defence. Injuries to the likes of Tomiyasu, Jurrien Timber, Oleksandr Zinchenko and even stand-in right-back Thomas Partey have left the Gunners a little short at the back in recent months. 

William Saliba has played every minute of the Premier League campaign thus far – but with memories fresh of the Frenchman’s injury last term, which in part derailed Arsenal’s hopes of landing the title, a new defender is said to be on the agenda for this summer.

Spanish outlet Marca may have indirectly proposed a solution, with Bayern Munich said to be willing to offer Barcelona €100 million for Uruguayan stopper Ronald Araujo. The move would be a record for a centre-back, overtaking Harry Maguire’s £85m fee.
