After being left with Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal as his only options at left-back last season, it has been no surprise to see Unai Emery look to find a replacement in that position.
The duo were part of a back-line that conceded 51 goals in the Premier League and reports in recent weeks had suggested the Gunners’ prime target on the left-hand side would be Celtic’s Kieran Tierney.
Now, Spanish publication Sport claim Real Madrid star Marcelo is attracting interest from the north London side after the Brazilian reportedly asked to be let go following the arrival of Lyon defender Ferland Mendy.

Having heard that their side could be interested in the veteran Brazilian, Gunners fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the matter, and it appeared many seemed to be divided over his potential arrival.
Some supporters felt that he was a better option than what they already had at the club and urged them to get a deal done for left-back.
Others however were slightly more sceptical about whether Marcelo was even available and questioned whether this was all simply a ploy for him to get a new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Check out some of the reaction of Arsenal fans below:
Better than what we have currently.
