Arsenal have lost out on Olympicaos centre-back, Pape Abou Cisse, with Wolverhampton Wanderers set to land the giant defender in a £10million deal, the UK Mirror reports.
The 23-year-old is rated as one of Europe’s most highly-rated young stoppers and Wolves have won the race for his signature.
This development leaves Unai Emery looking elsewhere for a new centre-half, as he bids to bolster his backline ahead of the new campaign.
William Saliba will sign for the Gunners, but the 18-year-old will be loaned back to St Etienne for one season.
Club captain, Laurent Koscielny is desperate to leave Emirates and refused to travel on Arsenal’s pre-season tour to the US in a bid to force a move back to France.
