Monchi eyeing Benfica defender for Arsenal

Former AS Roma Sporting director Monchi is eyeing Benfica defender Alex Grimaldo for Arsenal.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, Alex Grimaldo is one of the most highly-rated players outside of the top European leagues and has been linked to Arsenal and Manchester City.

However, the potential arrival of Monchi could be a boost for the Gunners in this transfer, as he has been a long term admirer of the player.

Arsenal is expecting to make the announcement of Monchi as the new technical director at the London club next month.
