Arsenal like Aston Villa center-back Tyrone Mings, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic, but it continues to be seen if they are moving on to make a request for his signature this season.
He’ll probably step on if Villa relegates, The England international is also holding attention from some of the country’s biggest clubs.
With eight games to go in the Premier League table, Dean Smith’s side is presently 19th, but they’re just a point away from safety, and still have a realistic chance to escape the drop.
Mikel Arteta, seems keen on Mings as the Arsenal manager, wants a center-back left-footed.
Ornstein said on The Ornstein and Chapman Podcast, “I understand there is interest in Tyrone Mings from a couple of big Premier League clubs,”.
“Arsenal like him too, but whether that manifests itself in a bid, whether they could afford the sort of fee Villa are looking for is a completely different matter.”
This season Mings has been one of Villa’s most significant players along with side Jack Grealish and as a result of his top performances for the Midland club, he has attained a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions squad.
Given their crusades at the back, Arsenal could do with such a quality center-back and it’s going to be engaging to see if they ‘re going to go after his signature this summer.
At the end of the season, David Luiz is likely to move on and Mings can be an immense improvement on the Brazilian who is prone to mistake.
He has what it takes to help boost the chances of Gunners to become a top-four side again, but if Arsenal can beat his signature competition remains to be seen and if he becomes available this summer, he won’t be short of options.
