Arsenal eye Champions League finalist

Arsenal are considering a move for Atletico Madrid’s Juanfran as a replacement for soon to be out of contract full-back Bacary Sagna, according to reports from Goal.

The French international looks set to leave the Gunners in the coming weeks to sign for Manchester City, which will leave Arsene Wenger short on options to fill the void on the right side of his backline.

Toulouse’s Serge Aurier is thought to be the top target, but now Juanfran has emerged as an alternative.

The 29-year-old has been one of the star’s of the Madrid’s side’s stunning season – featuring more times than any other outfield player – and looks set to feature in the Champions League final this evening.

Although Aurier’s signing would be an easier task for Arsenal, Juanfran is seen as a potentially better instant option, and the sort of player who could make an impact straight away at the highest level.

Talks between the Londoners and Toulouse are rumoured to be on-going, with a fee of around £7m expected to be needed to take the 21-year-old away from Ligue 1.
