Arsenal are ready to reignite their interest in Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos but will face still competition from Juventus and Manchester United.
The Gunners will be in the market for at least one new central defender when the transfer window opens in the summer and have tracked Papastathopoulos in the past.
Juventus appeared to be leading the race to sign the 29-year-old Greece international, but Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that the Serie A champion are wary of interest from Arsenal.
The Kalamata-born defender has played 25 times in the Bundesliga so far this term and has turned in a series of solid displays.
As talkSPORT told you last month, Manchester United are also monitoring Papastathopoulos closely ahead of the summer while Chelsea have been credited with an interest in the past.
And now Arsenal are ready to rejoin the race to sign him following a miserable season in the Premier League.
