Arsenal are ready to make a move for Ajax star Nicolas Tagliafico with Mikel Arteta reportedly eager to bring in a new left-back to allow Bukayo Saka to push further forward.

In an often frustrating season, the emergence of 17-year-old Saka has been one of the bright spots of the campaign, with the teenager laying on nine assists in all competitions.



While Arteta has been impressed with how well the youngster has adapted and developed the defensive side of the game, he wants to return Saka to his natural role as a winger.



According to The Sun, that has seen Arteta prioritise signing a new left-back to ensure Saka does not end up getting pushed back into the role again next season and he has his eye on Tagliafico.

Tagliafico is believed to be open to moving to the Emirates and keen for a new challenge, with the Premier League particularly appealing, though there are a number of clubs interested in signing him.

By signing a new left-back, Arsenal hope it will show Saka how important he is to the team - as a winger, his preferred position, rather than a defender - and convince him to sign a new contract.
