Arsenal have jumped to the front of the queue for highly-rated Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Wan-Bissaka is valued at £40million but the Gunners are reportedly undeterred by the massive price tag and are leading the race for his signature, according to The Sun.
German giants Bayern Munich have also been keeping a close eye on his progress, but Wan-Bissaka could be keen to stay in the capital if he leaves Selhurst Park.
The Palace academy graduate has been a regular this season, appearing 28 times.
Holding in line for new deal
Arsenal are set to offer Rob Holding a new deal despite his long-term injury.
The 23-year-old central defender is not expected to return until September after sustaining cruciate knee ligament damage in December.
However, he was in excellent form in the period leading up to his last game for the Gunners and had established a good partnership with Sokratis Papastathopolous.
Boss Unai Emery wants to reward him for his progress and the new terms will reflect his standing in the first team.
Emery wants to build on Saints win
Unai Emery urged his Arsenal team to build on their return to the Premier League’s top four ahead of a week that could define their season.
“Most important is to go game by game. Same; three points versus Tottenham but it’s one game when we can control their results and ours. Our first thought is to win on Wednesday. Be organised.
“We have a lot of matches and it’s important to have big performances like (this).”
