Arsenal battling Barcelona for FC Basle defender Schar

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.
