​Arsenal target Atletico Madrid defender Gimenez instead of De Vrij

Arsenal are hoping to complete the signing of Atletico Madrid central defender Jose Gimenez in the summer.

The Gunners are in desperate need of a defensive overhaul, and they are hoping to make Gimenez the first signing.

Arsene Wenger originally wanted to go after Steven De Vrij, who will be available on a free this summer. However, the Lazio man is looking set for a move to Liverpool, meaning Arsenal will turn their attentions to Gimenez.

The Argentine is a talented defender, but he does not get along with Atletico manager Diego Simeone, which could see him sold in the summer.
