Arsenal could sell Kwior for £21m with ‘more time’ to replace him

Arsenal could be open to the possibility of selling Jakub Kiwior to AC Milan this summer, according to Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Poland international joined the Gunners from Spezia in January last year and has since been in and out of the starting line-up.

Kiwior barely started under manager Mikel Arteta during the first half of last season and there was talk that he could be loaned out in January.

However, the club were clear that he was not available. Kiwior ended up starting regularly at left-back between February and March.

Milan are long-term admirers of Kiwior and ould like to bring him to the San Siro this summer.

The Rossoneri value the 24-year-old’s versatility and are prepared to make a renewed summer offer.

Arsenal could be willing to sell this time around as there is more time to sign a suitable replacement.

A fee slightly less than £21 million could be sufficient to sign Kiwior, who may want a more prominent role next term.

The Pole would favour a return to Serie A where he made a name for himself at Spezia.

Arsenal should not sell Kiwior without a proper replacement

The Gunners currently have William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes as the undisputed central defenders.

The duo are assured to start every league game when fit. If either is absent, Kiwior is one of the immediate back-up options alongside Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jurrien Timber.

Kiwior may want a guaranteed starting place next season, but Arsenal should avoid selling him unless they can recruit a proper successor.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta prefers to play with a left-footed centre-back in his line-up. If Kiwior were to leave, the Spanish tactician will want a like-for-like replacement.

Ajax’s Jorrel Hato would be a perfect acquisition. The 18-year-old sensation can play in central defence or at left-back and would be a statement signing.
