Goals from Mesut Ozil (1) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2) ensured victory for the Gunners.

According to Italian news outfit Calciomercato, Arsenal boss Unai Emery believes Tagliafico, 26, will be the solution to his side’s left-back problem.

Tagliafico’s current contract with Ajax would end in 2022.

Arsenal will have to wait until the January transfer window to sign the Argentine star.
