Back at the weekend, Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri reported that Arsenal are ‘now going’ for the signing of Timothy Castagne from Leicester City.

It was claimed that the Gunners ‘started talks’ to find an agreement for the Foxes’ right-back, and things could ‘develop quickly’ for a summer move.

However, as Tavolieri now features a new update on this pursuit, it’s said Arsenal may actually find some difficulties with this deal.

It’s first said that Castagne is ‘appreciated’ by the Gunners’ board. And the good news is that Leicester City will ‘collaborate’ for the deal to happen.

Yet, Tavolieri says he was told the deal will take ‘more time than expected’, as Arsenal need to ‘fix some priorities’ before that signing.

It’s not said what those priorities are, even though it sounds like the Gunners look to reinforce other positions first.

Tavolieri claimed that Arsenal’s first option for the right-back position used to be Ivan Fresneda from Real Valladolid. For some reason, they seem to have changed their priority to move for the Leicester City player.
