Arsenal & Man United face battle for Ligue 1 midfield general

Manchester United and Arsenal may have to act quickly if they want Monaco’s Geoffrey Kondogbia, with reports from talkSPORT claiming that Inter Milan are also in the race for combative midfielder.

The 22-year-old rose to prominence with Sevilla before joining his current side at the start of last season – their first back in Ligue 1 – and has built on his reputation on the Mediterranean coast.

His form at the Stade Louis II is believed to have attracted both Arsenal and United, with the pair both thought to be on the lookout for a top class holding midfielder.

However, Inter Milan are now firmly in the battle and are keen to beat interested parties to the rangy star.

Kondogbia – who shone last week as Monaco beat Arsenal in the Champions League – is valued at around £14.5m by the Russian-funded outfit, which the Serie A side may be able to pay if they return to Europe’s top club competition.
