Arsenal boss Wenger ready to bid for Mainz defender Abdou Diallo

Mainz defender Abdou Diallo is interesting Arsenal.

The Mirror says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has already brought in Henrikh Mkhitaryan, is closing in on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but made it very clear they got more cash to buy more reinforcements this month.

Arsenal are keen on West Brom defender Jonny Evans and Mainz defender Diallo and that is an area where they are still looking to strengthen and Wenger claimed “a lot will happen" yet.

Wenger said: “It depends on the opportunities we have. We can buy players. We are busy on all fronts, so overall I think we are open-minded. Every opportunity we have to strengthen our squad, we'll take.

“If people want to buy some of our players, we have [examined that] - players who have less chances to play, we have done it, who deserve to play because they are great players, who have left us.

“After that, we'll see at the end. There's still a lot that will happen as usual on the transfer market."
