When we got to know that Chelsea may have to pay £60 million for a certain Napoli defender we were surprised at the price tag but now another English club have been dropped a major bomb.
Arsenal have been told that they have to cough up £56 million for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez. The club needs a center back desperately and they are looking at all possible option. While Shkodran Mustafi seems like the favorite to join, several players like Johnny Evans, Jose Fonte and Jose Gimenez have been linked as well.
Gimenez is one of the latest names to be linked with the Gunners and as per Metro news, the Spanish clubs have told the Gunners that the price will be £56 million. This transfer season we have already seen the record for highest transfer fee being broken. The way Arsenal and Chelsea have been quoted, we may as well see the transfer fee record for a defender be broken too.
