Presnel Kimpembe has recently emerged as Arsenal target. According to a few sources, Paris Saint Germain are not expected to retain the services of the French Centre Back, especially should they sign De Ligt. Arsenal, alongside Manchester United and Chelsea, could be making a move for Kimpembe this transfer window.
Unai Emery played a big role in helping Kimpembe kick start his career and develop. Emery showed a lot of faith in him when he was the manager of PSG.
Kimpembe is a ball playing defender. he can help start up attacks from the back by bring the ball into the midfield and play out short passes to the attackers or playmakers. On the ball, he is very calm which means that he does not panic in tight situations and knows how to handle them well. Kimpembe has a very good marking ability, making sure that his opponents do not get enough space or time to create a chance.
The timing of his tackles are one of his strengths due to his level of anticipation. He does not make sloppy mistakes and give away fouls so easily. When in a 1v1 defending situation, he uses his speed and physical strength to make sure he gets out on top.
Presnel Kimpembe also has the ability to pick out long and short passes. He has a very good pass completion percentage. He has a fantastic vision and he can put out long balls, starting a counter attack from his own defensive third.
Kimpembe has a contract with PSG till 2023 which means that Arsenal would have to make a very high bid. Although, Arsenal could low-ball PSG as they are already looking to offload him. Unai Emery could play a big role once again in bringing him here to Arsenal. It would be a great addition to Arsenal's defence.
