Arsenal aim to get more players in the squad, with Champions League fixtures almost cemented for next season. Ben White, who is playing so well at right back & Tomiyasu currently occupy the positions.

After Takehiro Tomiyasu picked up a long-term injury, Arsenal are looking for a versatile option at full-back ahead of the summer. Ideally a player who can play on both sides of the back four. Many teams will look to approach Sacha Boey, but if Arsenal come for his signature, it may be a hard one to turn down.

Compared to Ben White, Boey has 40 tackles won, while White only has 26. However, Boey has 6 yellow cards and 1 red card compared to Ben White’s 4 yellow cards. Boey’s playstyle is much more down the wing and aggressive compared to White.
