Arsenal target Kostas Manolas has reportedly decided on a move against Arsenal and has agreed personal terms with Roma.
The Gunner’s are desperate for a back-up central defender after allowing Thomas Vermaelen leave for Spanish Giants Barcelona.
Manolas has been linked with the Emirates throughout the duration of the summer window, and it was expected that a deal between Arsenal and Olympiakos would of been agreed soon.
However, it appears as if the defender has done a U-turn and opted for a move to Serie A instead.
With Medhi Benatia on his way out of Roma, the Italian side have stepped up their efforts to sign Manolas as the Moroccan’s replacement.
Now, it is understood that all Roma have to do is agree a fee with the Greek side and they will be able to snatch Manolas away from Arsenal’s clutches.
