Arsenal eye a £10m summer move for Olympiacos defender Pape Abou Cisse, according to a report.

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Olympiacos defender Pape Abou Cisse.

The 23-year-old, who stands at 6ft 6in, has made 50 appearances for his Greek club since switching from Ajaccio in the summer of 2017.

According to 90min, Arsenal are interested in striking a deal for the 23-year-old, who is currently with the Senegal squad preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations final against Algeria.

The report claims that the Gunners want to sign two new central defenders this summer and the club feel that £10m would be enough to convince Olympiacos to sell ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

Unai Emery's side are said to have agreed a deal with Saint-Etienne for William Saliba, but the teenager is expected to be immediately loaned back to the French club.

Meanwhile, Arsenal's need for defenders could be strengthened if club captain Laurent Koscielny leaves the Emirates Stadium in this summer's transfer window.
