Three reasons Everton should move for Chambers if Arsenal sign Diallo

According to reports by Goal, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is tracking Mainz centre-back Abdou Diallo, with The Sun reporting that he could make a move for the defender during the January transfer window.

The Sun reports that Wenger is keen to bolster his side’s backline in the New Year after they lost five of their 18 Premier League matches already this season, and Gunners scouts believe that the France U21 international could be a hit in the English top flight.

With Per Mertesacker retiring in the summer, Laurent Koscielny not being as good as he has been in previous years and Nacho Monreal still often used as a full-back turned centre-back, it is certainly an area that needs strengthening in the future.

If the north London outfit do get the 21-year-old Diallo, then it would throw some question marks over the futures of the likes of Calum Chambers, who has only made four first-team appearances this term and not played a single minute of Premier League football. Chambers is valued at £12.6m by transfermarkt.com.

Meanwhile, Everton continued their rejuvenation under Sam Allardyce with a 3-1 win against Swansea City at Goodison Park on Monday night, but the 63-year-old is still likely to want to strengthen his squad in key areas in January.

One of those areas could be in defence, and bringing Chambers to the Merseyside could prove to be a shrewd move.
