Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing former Chelsea full-back Filipe Luis who is out of contract next summer (via The Mirror).
The Gunners have a strong squad right now with depth in almost every area of the pitch.
The attacking options are excellent but the biggest problem for Unai Emery is still undoubtedly in defence.
The situation has been made worse with the injuries to Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles which have left the club with just one recognised first-team left-back.
Nacho Monreal is the only real option right which is perhaps where these rumours have come from.
Reports suggest that Arsenal are keen on signing Atletico Madrid and Spain full-back, Filipe Luis.

The 33-year-old former Chelsea man is out of contract in the summer and could be available in a cut-price January move.
It’s an interesting story but it’s unclear what Arsenal would gain from the signing of Filipe Luis. The Gunners are short of left-backs right now but the situation will change in January once Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have returned.
