Arsenal and Chelsea are both keen on signing Roma centre-back, Kostas Manolas.

The defender is reportedly worth around £25m, which isn’t too bad considering he’s 25 years old and made 45 appearances for the Serie A club last season. Also, we do need a centre-back, due to the fact that we’ve only got three in the senior squad, therefore, I’d say it’s a reasonable amount to pay.

Could Chelsea pay him more? Sure. However, our link to Roma in the form of Wojciech Szczesny could prove handy as we’ve already got a line of communication open with them.

Watch Manolas in action below.
