Club open to selling ‘excellent’ £17m player after Arsenal make contact

Galatasaray are reportedly open to selling Sacha Boey, with Arsenal believed to have already made contact to sign the French defender.

The 23-year-old right-back has been strongly linked with a move to one of Europe’s elite this month, with Arsenal no exception as Mikel Arteta looks to add to his defensive ranks this January.
With a reported asking price of £17m, Boey would be a good signing for many top sides this window, and Arsenal could now be one of the favourites to land the former Rennes talent.
According to Sabah, Galatasaray are now open to offers for Boey, with Arsenal one of the sides who have been in contact with the Turkish giants over the talented defender.
Lauded by Arsenal expert Charles Watts as an ‘excellent’ fullback, Boey would offer a unique option for Arteta in the right-back position alongside Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu.

However, whilst Boey is an excellent player, Arsenal might be better off spending their limited funds elsewhere, with right-back hardly a problem area for the Gunners.

Arsenal should reevaluate Sacha Boey interest in the summer
Boey is clearly a player the higher-ups at Arsenal admire, with the 23-year-old being linked with a move to north London for what feels like forever.

And whilst the defender would be a good addition to the squad this January, there’s no real need for Arteta to bring in another right-back considering the options Arsenal already have.

As a result, waiting until the summer to move for Boey could be the best decision going forward for the north London side, who could be set for a mass squad overhaul at the end of this season.
