Report in France claims Arsenal are monitoring Monaco’s defensive midfielder, Fabinho.
Arsenal are not the only English club that shown interest in the defensive midfielder as Manchester United are reportedly keen on signing the Brazilian international this summer.
Fabinho has told Monaco that he wants to quit the club and move to England, according to L’Equipe.
The newspaper says the player told the club he “wants to leave Monaco” ahead of the new season.
But Arsenal will have to spend big to get their man as the French side have already rejected a £40m bid from domestic rivals PSG.
Fabinho made 55 appearances for Monaco last season, scoring 12 and assisting six.
He still has four years left on his current deal with the Ligue 1 side and only signed from Rio Ave in 2015 after having loan spells at Real Madrid and his current club Monaco.
