Arsenal is considering targeting Jonathan Tah for a potential bargain summer transfer. There is uncertainty surrounding the defender’s future, prompting the Gunners to potentially seek assistance from their player Granit Xhaka to engage Tah.
The German player has been performing impressively for Bayer Leverkusen and has previously been linked with Arsenal. At just 27 years old, Tah has become a crucial figure for the Bundesliga leaders and has demonstrated his potential, notably with a 90th-minute winning goal in a recent match and a total of five goals this season.
His strong aerial ability could be a valuable asset for Arsenal, who have established a reputation for excelling in set-pieces under coach Mikel Arteta. With only 12 months remaining on his contract at the end of the season, Leverkusen may be looking to secure a significant fee for Tah in the upcoming summer transfer window, should he decide not to extend his deal.
With his 331 appearances for the club, Tah is expected to attract considerable interest, and his teammate Xhaka may provide positive endorsement for Arsenal, drawing on his own experience under Arteta’s management. However, should Liverpool make a coaching change, potentially bringing in Xabi Alonso, they might also show interest in Tah, given their defensive needs.
If Tah becomes available for transfer from Leverkusen, Arsenal may face intense competition for his signature. Nevertheless, with Xhaka’s potential influence, the Gunners could have an advantage in pursuing a deal for Tah, leveraging their existing connection.
