Arsenal tracking highly-rated teammate of Torreira after failed January bid
| Last updated
Arsenal are tracking Galatasaray right back Sacha Boey, according to a fresh report.
The Gunners are currently at the Premier League summit, some five points clear of last season’s champions Manchester City with just 12 games to play.
Should their title surge continue on the same trajectory, May will see Arsenal claim their first title in 19 years.
Central to the team's success this term has been the influence of the squad's young contingent, notably Bukayo Saka, William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli and club captain, Martin Odegaard.
And if reports are to be believed the Gunners are looking to add another youngster to their ranks - 22-year-old French youth international Boey.
Boey to Arsenal?
Tuttomercatoweb claim Arsenal are plotting a summer move for Galatasaray right-back Boey.
The Gunners allegedly remain interested in Boey, having tried to sign him in the January window.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta reportedly wants to “beef up” the right flank, despite Ben White and his understudy, Takehiro Tomiyasu, having successfully operated at right-back throughout the season.
However, Turkish Football claimed that Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are also keeping a close eye on the Frenchman, with the latter the most likely to offer the player regular Premier League football.
Galatasaray are well aware of the growing interest Boey is generating, and have reportedly been trying to offer the player a bumper new contract extension.
Indeed, the former French under-20 international is currently under contract until 2025.
Boey has been central to Galatasaray’s success this season, with the Turkish giants at the top of the Super Lig table having won their last 13 games in a row.
The defender moved to Turkey from Rennes for just €1.15million (£1million) in 2021.
According to Foot Mercato should Boey negotiate a new contract with Galatasaray, it will likely include a release clause worth €14million (£12million).
