AC Milan have made Arsenal centre-back Jakub Kiwior their top priority for the upcoming summer transfer window, according to journalist Santi Aouna. The Italian giants were unsuccessful in their attempts to sign Kiwior last January but are reportedly determined to renew their pursuit in the coming weeks.

Kiwior has been a backup defender for Arsenal’s primary centre-back duo, William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes. Despite his role as a backup, Kiwior gained valuable game time in the second half of the 2023/24 season, covering at left-back and showing his versatility. His performances have evidently caught the attention of Milan, who see him as a key addition to their squad.

The 2023/24 season concluded with Arsenal finishing in 2nd place in the Premier League, amassing 89 points, just two points behind champions Manchester City, who secured 91 points. While Saliba and Magalhaes were the mainstays in the centre of defense, Kiwior’s contributions were crucial, particularly during periods of squad rotation and injury cover.

Milan’s renewed interest in Kiwior reflects their intent to bolster their defensive options. The Polish defender’s ability to play both as a centre-back and a left-back makes him an attractive prospect for the Rossoneri. His adaptability and solid defensive skills could provide Milan with the depth they need to compete on multiple fronts next season.

For Arsenal, Kiwior’s potential departure could prompt Mikel Arteta to seek reinforcements in defense. Although primarily a backup, Kiwior’s versatility and reliability have proven valuable, and finding a suitable replacement would be important for maintaining squad depth.

As the summer transfer window approaches, Arsenal fans will be watching closely to see how the club navigates this interest from Milan. Securing or replacing key squad members like Kiwior will be vital as Arsenal aims to build on their successful campaign and challenge for the Premier League title once again. The upcoming weeks promise to be pivotal for both Arsenal and Milan as they look to finalize their transfer plans.
