Arsenal are monitoring Borussia Monchengladbach central defender Matthias Ginter – but so are rivals Tottenham.
The 25-year-old is wanted to shore up Arsenal’s patchy back-line after already letting in 36 goals this season.
Arsenal are said to also be looking towards Benfica left-back Alejandro Grimaldo.
And like Ginter, they’re not alone. Atletico Madrid are keen too, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The 23-year-old is a former Barcelona youth player and could be an ideal replacement for Nacho Monreal.
Arsenal won’t be ruled out of the race to sign Norwich City’s Max Aarons.
Tottenham are the early favourites to secure the high-rated right-back’s signature.
But Arsenal’s scouts think the 19-year-old could be worth a bid – especially with the asking price said to only be around £15 million.
