Sevilla midfielder Vicente Iborra is concerned over the future of teammate Grzegor Krychowiak amid rumours Arsenal are interested in a deal for the Poland international.

Reports in the press have linked the Gunners with a move for Krychowiak, and despite Arsene Wenger publicly stating Arsenal were not interested in the 25-year-old, the links will not disappear.

Spaniard Iborra is concerned about what the future holds for his midfield partner and believes a club could be close to activating his £21.4 million release clause.

"Of course I am concerned that Krychowiak could be taken away," Iborra said, speaking to Estadio Deportivo.

"I always want to have the best players in the team. He brings so much. I hope he stays. I understand Sevilla's position, it is clear, and I hope nobody pays that clause, and he stays with us."


Wenger's public refusal over links to the Polish star do not necessarily rule out a transfer completely, managers often publicly deny links to players.

The Gunners could do with a player in the mould of the Sevilla star to offer competition to Francis Coquelin at the base of Arsenal's midfield.

The French star has cemented his place as the starting defensive midfielder, after a sterling half season in the last campaign, however should something disastrous happen to the 24-year-old Arsenal are very short on options.

Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini are capable of occupying the position in Coquelin's absence, however neither player has the tackling ability or pace to fill over a long period of the season.

Maybe Krychowiak is not the answer to Arsenal's problem, but a defensive midfielder should be high on the list of priorities for the Gunners.

Gunners fans, do your club need some new signings before the season starts? and in what positions? Have your say below!
