Arsenal are interested in Olympique Marseille fullback Jordan Amavi.
Mikel Arteta recently admitted that his side are ‘short’ in the left-back, having let Sead Kolasinac return to Schalke on loan.
Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand has been mentioned as a potential target, although the Saints are ‘confident’ that the England international will put pen to paper on a new contract at St Mary’s.
L’Equipe reports Arsenal are among a trio of clubs hoping to land Amavi from Marseille in the summer on a free transfer.
For the Gunners to do so they will have to beat off competition from Crystal Palace and Napoli, with the former believed to have shown ‘the most interest’.
