Arsenal are planning to sign West Ham defender Winston Reid for a £4million fee, according to Daily Mail.
The Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen on centre-back Winston Reid who is ready to leave West Ham next month.
Reid has been on Arsenal’s radar since November. The Gunners have been keeping very close tabs on the New Zealand international.
Arsenal fans are already hoping a defender from Arsene Wenger next month. The Frenchman has shortlisted many defenders including Dortmund star Mats Hummels and Aston Villa skipper Ron Vlaar.
Reid will be out of contract after this season and the Hammers are not ready to meet his demands. Reid wants more than £60,000 per week which is not affordable for the Hammers.
West Ham will definitely sell him for cheap price rather than letting him go on a free transfer in the summer.
Wenger has a £20million budget in his hands and can sign a fine defender and a defensive midfielder if he sells any player too.
Currently, Arsenal’s defenders Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Debuchy have returned from injuries but Calum Chambers is now out.
Nacho Monreal, Calum Chambers and Mathieu Debuchy all have struggled with injuries and also with their positions as all of them have played out of position to fill the gap of Laurent Koscielny.
