According to the Sun, the Gunners are interested in adding Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez, who would cost the PL club at least $68 million to meet the player’s release clause.

The 21-year-old Uruguayan is also said to be receiving intrigue from Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho. Gimenez joined Atletico in 2013 after coming to Europe from Uruguayan club Danubio in the country’s Primera Division.
