£20m-rated Ajax star emerges as Arsenal target


Arsenal are chasing left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, who is allowed to leave Eredivisie giants Ajax this summer, reports The Sun. 


Ajax are expected to oversee a number of departures this summer, including Andre Onana and Donny van de Beek, while Hakim Ziyech will join Chelsea on July 1st. 


Tagliafico is another who is free to depart the Amsterdam powerhouse and he has been courted by both Chelsea and Barcelona in recent weeks. 


Arsenal are another who may yet make a move for the Argentine, who could be available for as little as £20m this summer. 


Tagliafico fancies a new challenge himself and he has no shortage of suitors across the continent. 


Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta has plenty of left-back options at the Emirates in Bukayo Saka, Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney.

However, Saka has been linked with a summer exit with talks between the youngster and the club over a new contract at an impasse, while Kolasinac and Tierney have both endured their injury issues in recent months. 


Tagliafico has earned a WhoScored rating of 7.57 in the Champions League this season, enough to feature in the best XI in Europe's elite club competition.
