Arsenal to make January bid for Martins Indi

Published Add your comment

Arsenal hope to bolster their defensive options with the January signing of Feyenoord defender Bruno Martins Indi, according to the Metro.

The 21-year-old, who has been capped 11 times by the Netherlands, can either play as a central defender or at left-back and has impressed since turning professional at De Kuip in 2010.

Martins Indi was linked with a transfer to Everton at the end of the summer window, but he ended up staying at Feyenoord after a move to Goodison Park failed to materialise.

However, former Arsenal full-back Giovani van Bronkhorst - who now works as a coach at Feyenoord - knows that it's only a matter of time before Martins Indi departs for a top European club.

"He is very good and strong," the former Netherlands international was quoted as telling reporters. "It is not for nothing he’s a first-choice here and with the Dutch national team.

"He will make the move to a foreign club in the long-term. When the time comes and he wants to leave, he will leave the club.

"We are very happy with him, but we know we cannot compete with the top European clubs."

Arsenal attempted to strengthen their back-line in the summer with the acquisition of Swansea City captain Ashley Williams - but the two clubs failed to strike an agreement on the fee.

Now they will turn their attention's to the Feyenoord star.
