Arsenal have already bolstered their defensive ranks with the capture of Stephan Lichtsteiner on a free transfer from Juventus but Unai Emery is eyeing further additions.
The Sun names Arsenal as one of numerous parties interested in the services of 18-year-old Uruguay defender Sebastian Caceres, who has attracted plenty of interest following his performances in his homeland for Liverpool FC in Montevideo.
Now, Arsenal have been handed a boost in their quest to sign the teenager as he’s quoted as revealing his delight at links with the Premier League giants.
“This was flattering to hear this as they are a top team. I don’t know much about their new manager but I watch Arsenal a lot as I like the style of football.”
“To play in the Premier League would be a dream for me as my ambitions are firstly to play in Europa and then play a World Cup with the Uruguay first team.”
Arsenal already boast a wealth of talented young centre-backs in Calum Chambers, Rob Holding and January signing Konstantinos Mavropanos.
