Aaron Wan-Bissaka is reportedly a ‘top target’ for Arsenal with Unai Emery apparently ‘impressed’ by the 21-year-old right-back who could cost £40m.

1Wan for Arsenal?

Arsenal need a right-back as both cover and back-up for Hector Bellerin.

Stephan Lichtsteiner is out of contract in the summer and, even if he wasn’t, he’s certainly not the answer to this problem.

That means we have a host of players being linked with a move to the club and the latest name to come to the fore is Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

There are a few problems with this rumour but the main issue is his price. £40m is a lot to spend on a 21-year-old who, naturally, comes with an English premium attached to his price tag.

Arsenal don’t really have £40m to spend on a full-back when they also need a winger, midfielder and centreback. Sales will, of course, help boost our limited transfer kitty, but it seems hard to imagine them spending anywhere close to this amount on Bissaka.

That being said, would he be worth it? Let’s take a look…
