Arsenal are interested in a bid for Southampton defender, Cedric Soares.
The Gunners have turned their attentions to the versatile Soares, who has just six months left on his contract at St Mary’s.
Arsenal are prepared to pay £5m plus bonuses for the 28-year-old.
Mikel Arteta is keen to strengthen in the full-back position and had held talks with Paris Saint-Germain this month about a move for left-back Layvin Kurzawa.
Soares is primarily a right-back, but also capable of playing as a left-back.
Southampton are already weighing up whether to sanction Soares’s departure, ahead of Kyle Walker-Peters’s arrival on loan from Tottenham on Wednesday.
