Arsenal to step up pursuit of Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Gimenez


It has been suggested in recent weeks that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger might be in the market for a new defender in January, as Arsenal aim to strengthen for a title push next year.


According to Don Balon, Wenger may aim to make an offer of £26m for the Uruguayan international, but that fee is considered to be well below the defender’s reported £56m buyout clause.

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United are also thought to be keeping tabs on Gimenez, who has collected 21 caps for his country.
