Arsenal and Chelsea ‘in transfer battle with Inter for Borussia Monchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter’

0

GERMANY international Matthias Ginter is reportedly on Chelsea and Arsenal’s radar – but Inter Milan lead the fight for the defender.

Reports in Ginter’s homeland suggest a number of clubs are competing for his signature after he helped Borussia Monchengladbach qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Inter are searching for a long-term replacement for veteran centre-back Diego Godin and have eyed Ginter for a transfer, according to Sky Deutschland.

Also said to be keen are Chelsea and Arsenal although their interest is thought to be lower than the Serie A club.

Ginter made 36 appearances in all competitions last season as Borussia’s early title challenge faded to a fourth-placed finish.

A nine-year career so far has been evenly split by the 26-year-old between hometown team Freiburg, Borussia Dortmund, and Gladbach.

Both Premier League clubs will be looking to reinforce their defence if they want to improve their fortunes next season.

Chelsea conceded more goals than Brighton, Crystal Palace and every top-half team en route to fourth-place.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have already signed Pablo Mari permanently and extended David Luiz’s contract for next season.

Mistakes have permeated in a hugely disappointing league campaign for the Gunners with Mikel Arteta keen to eliminate sloppy concessions.

The coach said after July’s North London Derby defeat to Tottenham: “There have been various things that have cost us games.

“Sometimes errors, sometimes game management. The margin is a lot, at the moment we have to improve.”
