Arsenal discussing shock move for Crystal Palace ace

Arsenal have been discussing a potential move for Crystal Palace’s Scott Dann as they eye a solution to their current defensive crisis, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Gunners have been rocked by news that Per Mertesacker is set to be sidelined for a lengthy period of time, while Laurent Koscielny’s arduous EURO 2016 campaign is likely to leave him lacking in match fitness ahead of the big kick-off.

A move for Shkodran Mustafi have been mooted, but reports claim that Dann has also been talked about behind the scenes.

The 6ft. 5” Eagles defender shone for the London club last term, and has long been praised for his commanding performances.

As well as Arsenal, Everton are thought to be interested in the 29-year-old, who was born in Liverpool.

Another target for Arsene Wenger is Swansea’s Federico Fazio.
