Gunners plot shock Welsh defender raid

Next Story

Arsenal are being linked with a shock January raid on Swansea City defender Neil Taylor.

The Welsh international, who moved to the Liberty Stadium from Wrexham in 2010, has been an integral part of the Swans' impressive defensive record this term.

And The Sun now claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is tracking the highly-rated 22-year-old, who has made eight appearances for the Red Dragon at international level.

The Gunners have been linked with a handful of players in the full-back position in recent weeks, with Jorge Fucile, Saad al-Mukhaini and Taye Taiwo all claimed to be on the radar at the Emirates Stadium.

Speculation has come following a injury-crisis in north London, with Bacary Sagna, Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, Andre Santos and Thomas Vermaelen all injured. Johan Djourou is also suspended for one-match for being sent-off in defeat for Arsenal on Monday.

With Gibbs and Sagna not far from return, Wenger admitted in December that he was no longer sure that additions in the transfer window was the best way to solve the problems, but that hasn't stopped the speculation over possible Arsenal moves - Taylor the latest to be linked.
