The Torino right-back has been identified as one of the club’s potential targets as Mikel Arteta looks to add more reinforcements in the defensive unit.
As per British media, Arsenal are considering a move for Torino right-back Wilfried Singo.
The Ivory Coast international joined Torino from Denguélé in January 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
He has featured in 26 matches for Torino this term, netting 3 goals and providing 4 assists in all competitions.
The 21-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Ivory Coast. As a member of Ivory Coast national football team, Singo won two caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new right-back and Wilfried Singo is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Arsenal manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.
Arsenal are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Denguélé man heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Arsenal are keeping tabs on Torino defender Wilfried Singo. The 21-year-old is impressing scouts from several European teams, including the Gunners. According to CBS Sports, Arsenal are considering making a bid for Singo in the summer. His club Torino are willing to sell, with the player having a contract until 2023. The report states that an asking price of roughly £25 million has been set. Arsenal will have to fend off interest from cross-town rivals Tottenham to secure Singo.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Gunners have to fork out a huge transfer fee if they are genuinely interested in the Ivory Coast international.
Torino are preparing to sell their right-back should they receive right offer for him.
Good signing for Arsenal?
If Arsenal and Arteta are seriously considering a right-back, Singo could also prove to be a smart option.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
All in all, Wilfried Singo will be an ideal choice for Mikel Arteta as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his defenders.
It will be interesting to see if Arsenal can beat their rivals to the right-back’s signature.
