Gunners are eyeing Real Madrid attacker Cesar Gelabert with the starlet impressing Mikel Arteta. Cesar is yet to feature for the Los Blancos first team but his displays in the UEFA Youth League have impressed Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, according to the report.

Interest for Gelabert is high with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyon also looking at a move for the talented Spanish playmaker.

However, it seems as difficult Gunners are in the lead for Gelabert’s signature with Mikel keen to strengthen his midfield with Dani Ceballos returning to Real Madrid following his loan spell at the Emirates.

Elsewhere, the London giants are also looking at signing West Ham centre-back, Issa Diop. RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano also linked with Arsenal as the Spanish tactician wants to strengthen the back-line during the summer transfer window.

The French defender has impressed for Hammers under both Manuel Pellegrini and David Moyes and is on Gunners radar, according to the report.

The report also states that Man United are interested in signing the French centre-back, but at the moment, Gunners are leading the race for his signature as West Ham United are expected to want £60m for the centre-back.
