Arsenal in move for Alex
Arsenal are said to be interested in Chelsea centre back Alex as Arsene Wenger continues to look for defensive reinforcements this summer. The Gunners manager has been chasing a number of targets without success and reportedly now turn to the Brazilian international international. The 29 year old tough tackling defender is by no means a first team regular and the arrival of new Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas may well mean that the former PSV Eindhoven man could find his starting role chances further diminished as the former Porto boss continues to be linked with numerous prospective signings. Alex made just 12 Premier League starts last term and the arrival in January of fellow countryman David Luiz further limited his chance to shine in the Chelsea side and could well feel that his future may lie away from Stamford Bridge. The uncompromising powerfully built centre back may be just what Arsenal are looking for to provide muc needed stability at the back.
