Arsenal fans react to links with Basel defender Eray Comert

After a season where Unai Emery didn’t quite bring a fix to the defensive struggles of Arsenal, it’s been no surprise to see the Gunners being linked with a wide range of players to fill that void.

The north London side have been linked with a big-money swoop for St Etienne’s young prospect William Saliba, but negotiations surrounding a move for the Frenchman have centred around possibly loaning him back for the upcoming season.

As such, the Daily Mail claim that Arsenal are “stepping up their interest” in Basel centre-back Eray Comert and that talks are being planned with his agents in Switzerland.

The report saw Gunners fans take to Twitter to reveal their thoughts on their latest transfer target and many were left rather underwhelmed by the prospect of Comert’s arrival.

Some pointed out that Arsenal’s two previous imports from the club, Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka, who came through the Swiss side’s academy, had hardly set the world alight at the Emirates.

Indeed, a few supporters of the north London side felt the club were going for the “cheap” option and were simply wasting money on those kinds of signings.
