Arsenal linked with another Atletico Madrid star

Published Add your comment

Arsenal are considering a bid for highly-rated Atletico Madrid defender Javier Manquillo, with speculation in Spain going into overdrive, reports talKSPORT.

The 19-year-old full-back has been identified as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna, who is yet to sign a new contract, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger is keen to resolve the France international's situation as soon as possible, and failure to get the right-back to extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium could prompt the Gunners boss into the transfer market for Manquillo.

The Spain U21 international has been earning rave reviews in La Liga this season, playing an important part in Diego Simeone's side, as they continue to challenge Barcelona and Real Madrid for the domestic title.

Manquillo is under contract at the Vicente Calderon until 2018, but that is unlikely to deter Arsenal in their pursuit of the player.
