Arsenal face competition from Barcelona for FC Basle defender Fabian Schar.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barcelona are extremely keen on signing the 22-year-old and are considering a summer swoop.

Schar has been linked with a switch to the Emirates in the past, following a series of impressive performances in the Champions League - most notably against Chelsea earlier this season.

In November, his agent even claimed the Gunners - amongst other clubs - had made contact over Schar's availability.
