According to Sky Italia, Wenger is one of the managers that have made an enquiry about the availability of Jeison Murillo as as Inter Milan seek to receive at least £15m for the defender.

Reports claim the that the Gunners are yet to come to a formal agreement with Inter Milan, but the centre-back has spoken to representatives from the club about a deal.

The Colombia international was on Copa America duty with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina and he has 4 more years on his current contract Inter Milan.

If Wenger plans on securing the defenders services he will need to be quick as Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea are also tracking the defender. With Koscielny likely to miss the first month of next season (due to participation in the Euros), it is likely that a deal for a new centre-back will be sealed before pre-season starts later on this month.

Is this the right move for Arsenal? Feel free to comment using the comment section below.
