Arsenal winger target Pedro Leon is set for a summer move from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

The former Spanish U21 international joined the La Liga giants in the summer, but has struggled for first team opportunities under Jose Mourinho since the €10 million move from Getafe. It's thought that Arsenal could land the player for a similar fee. claim Arsenal aren't alone in their interest for signing the 24-year-old, with Chelsea, AC Milan and Manchester City also linked with moves for the 24-year-old.

Florentino Perez, president of Los Blancos, is set to wield the axe on a number of players this summer, with Spanish publication Sport claiming seven players are set for a Santiago Bernabeu exit in a bid to free transfer funds for Jose Mourinho.

Leon is thought to be one of the unlucky few, although with only five appearances for the club a move could be just what the former Levante player needs.

Arsene Wenger is already thought to be considering his transfer option for the summer, and whilst a goalkeeper and defender are thought to be the priorities at Arsenal, a winger would add some much-needed width at the Emirates.


Leon would also suit the quick, counter attacking style that Arsenal employed so well against Barcelona in the Champions League a fortnight ago, and the offer of first team football could be enough to bring the player to the Gunners.
