Despite being a relatively late bloomer, Disasi has reportedly been on Arsenal’s radar for a year. And his reputation has skyrocketed following a breakthrough campaign for Reims.
After making just five appearances last season, Disasi has started in all of his 27 games this term. He’s not missed a minute of action, helping Reims boast the best defensive record in Ligue 1. They’ve conceded just 21 goals and kept 11 clean sheets, which even Paris Saint-Germain cannot rival.
It’s no secret that Arsenal badly need defensive reinforcements either.
Despite the imminent arrival of William Saliba, Mikel Arteta is still searching for ways to bolster his defence. And Disasi is allegedly one of his favoured candidates.
