Arsenal considering move for £7m-rated FC Basel defender Eray Comert
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are preparing a £7m bid for the 21-year-old and will send representatives to Switzerland for talks with Basel over his availability on Saturday.
Comert rose through the youth ranks at Basel before establishing himself as a first-team regular in the 2018-19 season, making 31 appearances for the club in all competitions.
A Switzerland U21 international, Comert has also spent time on loan at Basels Swiss Super League rivals Lugano and FC Sion over the past few seasons.
Everton were linked with a move for Comert back in January but a deal failed to materialise and Arsenal could look to capitalise by offering him a chance to play in the Premier League.
Emery is keen to add a central defender to his ranks and Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the capture of William Saliba from Saint-Etienne in a deal worth €25m.
However, the highly-rated 18-year-old may end up staying at Saint-Etienne next season on loan from the Gunners to further his development, meaning Emery could sign another defender.Read More – Source
