Atleti to Arsenal: €46m for Gimenez

Atletico Madrid have told Arsenal to pay €46m if they want to sign Jose Gimenez, according to reports in England.

AS cites the Daily Mail as claiming the Gunners’ interest in the Uruguay international, with Arsene Wenger handling a defensive injury crisis and trying to talk Valencia into selling Shkodran Mustafi, though Liverpool are said to be competition for the Germany international.

Arsenal are expected to baulk at the price put on Gimenez, though, and if Mustafi can be prised from Mestalla it’s thought he would be considerably cheaper at €35m, but Gimenez is another option said to be on the agenda at the Emirates Stadium.
