Arsenal set to strengthen defense with Axel Disasi signing

Arsenal are preparing to make a decisive move in the transfer market by acquiring the services of Axel Disasi, a highly sought-after defender. This strategic move aims to bolster their defensive options and provide tough competition for a spot at the heart of their backline, according to reliable sources.

Last season, the Gunners came tantalizingly close to ending their 19-year wait for Premier League glory. Their title chase saw them go head-to-head with Manchester City, but injuries and a lack of depth in the squad eventually took a toll on their performance, and they fell short in the final weeks of the season.

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, and sporting director Edu are keen to avoid a repeat of such setbacks. They have been proactive in strengthening the squad during the summer transfer window. High-profile signings like Declan Rice and Kai Havertz have already joined the Emirates ranks, making headlines for being among the top 10 most expensive deals in Arsenal’s history.

But it’s not just about bolstering their attacking options. Arsenal has also focused on reinforcing their defensive lineup. The recent signing of Jurrien Timber from Ajax for a substantial £38 million demonstrated their commitment to improving the backline.

Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba are currently the first-choice central defensive pairing for the Gunners. However, the lack of quality alternatives last season proved costly. To ensure they have ample cover and depth in the squad, Arteta is now eyeing Axel Disasi as a potential fourth option.

Disasi showcased his exceptional skills during his 49 appearances for Monaco last season, impressively scoring six goals and providing four assists. His outstanding performances did not go unnoticed, as he earned a call-up to the French national team and even featured in the 2022 World Cup. With a Transfermarkt value of 30 million euros, the 25-year-old is undoubtedly an attractive prospect for Arsenal.


Should the deal go through, Arsenal will not only have a reliable backup but also a versatile and talented defender in their ranks. As the new season approaches, Gunners fans are eagerly anticipating the positive impact Disasi could make in shoring up the team’s defense and boosting their chances of securing long-awaited silverware.
