Ajax’s defender Nicolás Tagliafico accumulated too much yellow cards. The Jews played a draw with Juventus (1:1) at home in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Nicolas Tagliafico got a yellow card in the 41st minute of the game for a dispute with the referee. Thus, the 26-year-old Argentine will miss the 2nd game in Turin.

Recall, Unai Emery is interested in the Argentinean, who will probably be a good long-term solution for the left flank of Arsenal defence.

Unai is looking for an opportunity to buy Nicolas Tagliafico
from Ajax as a potential substitution for Nacho Monreal.

The full-back will be a direct replacement for ageing Monreal, who are 33, and it also means that Sead Kolasinac does not meet the requirements at Emirates.
