Arsenal are reportedly readying a £15m bid for Brentford star Ezri Konsa as they look for defensive reinforcements in January.
Konsa,21, joined the Bees in June from Charlton for £2.85m but Gunners scouts believe he has what it takes to make the step up to the Premier League.
According to the Sun, Arsenal will have money available to splash in January and have identified a few areas to strengthen
Arsenal have options at center back, with Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi starting together frequently at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, while Rob Holding has been given opportunities in the last few weeks.
Laurent Koscielny is also working his way back to full fitness following an Achilles injury against Atletico Madrid in May last season, while Konstantinos Mavropanos was given chances under Arsene Wenger during the Frenchman’s final term as Gunners manager.
Ezri Lukaku Konsa has already played against Arsenal this season when Brentford were beaten 3-1 in the Carabao Cup at the Emirates Stadium in September.
