Arsenal will have to fight off interest from Napoli if they want to sign Montpellier captain Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.


A report in talkSPORT claims that the Serie A side have begun talks with the newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions and Arsene Wenger will have to move quickly if he wants to bring the France international to Emirates Stadium.


The report claims the Gunners have a strong interest in the 22-year-old who led Montpellier to their first ever league title last season and is interested in adding him to his defensive ranks.


It also suggests price in the region of £13million has been quoted as a sufficient amount to secure his services this summer.


Yanga-Mbiwa’s form has been terrific this year and earned him a call up to Laurent Blanc’s provisional 25-man Euro 2012 squad.


However, he was one of the unlucky two, along with Lyon playmaker Yoann Gourcuff, cut from the group when it was whittle down to the final 23 for the tournament.
