Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a summer move for Toulouse star Ibrahim Sangare.

The 2019-20 Ligue 1 campaign has been prematurely brought to an end due to the coronavirus outbreak, which could see the French club lose a number of important players when the transfer window will be re-opened.

La Liga giants Barcelona have recently interest 22-year-old midfielder Sangare, who has played 25 Ligue 1 games this season.

However, according to football.london, the Gunners are also planning to make a move for the Ivory Coast international midfielder when this summer’s transfer window will be re-opened.

The 22-year-old midfielder’s current contract in France is due to expire next summer, and it has been reported that he could be available for as little as €11m (£10.2m) ahead of the 2020-21 season.

Newcastle United and Everton are also believed to be closely keeping tabs on the developments.

Meanwhile, Premier League teams are reportedly among the clubs weighing up a summer move for AS Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

The 29-year-old has shone for French giants this campaign, directly being involved in 25 goals in 26 Ligue 1 games, finding the back of the net 18 times himself while providing seven assists to his teammates.

A host of Europe’s top teams have subsequently been credited with a strong interest in Ben Yedder, who could cost around £40m this summer.

L’Equipe reports that Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Man Utd are all keeping tabs on the French forward.
