SUMMER TRANSFER: Arsenal keep a close eye on €30m-rated Bundesliga centre-back

Arsenal keep a close eye on Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Edmond Tapsoba ahead of a possible summer move. The London giants have been long-term admirers of Burkina Faso international and the centre-back has admitted he is happy with the interest from the Gunners.

Edmond’s fantastic form in 2020 saw him nominated for the African Player of the Year award, and the defender has gone on to become a crucial member of the Bundesliga giants.

Tapsoba is an elegant and composed centre-back who excels in one-on-one situations, with his acceleration enabling him to keep pace with some of the quickest attackers in the league.

His ability on the ball will undoubtedly be a reason that the London giants are keeping a close eye on the 24-year-old centre-back, with the Spanish manager preferring his side to play out from the back and keep possession.

The African defender is out of the deal in 2026 and he’s a crucial figure for the German club at the moment, so you’d imagine it would take a hefty offer to prise him away from Bayer Leverkusen unless he forces a move.
