Arsenal linked with surprise move for Ajax right-back Devyne Rensch

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, is reportedly planning to make significant changes to the team’s defense during the summer transfer window. The Gunners have set their sights on Ajax fullback Devyne Rensch as a potential target.

Arteta is looking to offload Rob Holding and introduce further alterations to his defensive lineup. According to Peter O’Rourke, the Spanish coach intends to move Ben White back to his natural position as a center-half in the upcoming season.

Throughout the current campaign, White has predominantly featured as a right back, with William Saliba and Gabriel being the preferred choices for central defense. However, Arteta sees the versatility of White and envisions him as a rotational option to provide depth in the center of the defense.

He also made a solitary appearance for the senior Netherlands national team.

In his career at Ajax, Rensch has amassed 61 appearances, showcasing his defensive skills and contributing seven goals.
