Arsenal eye Eibar defender


Arsenal are interested in signing Eibar defender Florian Lejeune this summer, according to Marca.

Eibar are enjoying an impressive season in La Liga and their performances have not gone unnoticed.

Centre-back Lejeune, who joined Eibar from Manchester City in a €1.5m (£1.3m) deal last summer, has stood out and has perked the Gunners’ interest. The Gunners have scouted the Frenchman in action on several occasions this term and they are contemplating whether to trigger his €10m (£8.7m) release clause.

Eibar are aware it will be almost impossible to keep hold of the Frenchman if Arsenal opt to step up their interest, but they are still considering negotiating with the player to improve his contract and up his release clause.
