Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger remains keen on Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte.

The Daily Express says Arsene Wenger is eyeing Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte as a summer signing - but will have to rival Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich for his signature.

Laporte last season penned a new contract with Athletic, taking his buyout clause to £30million.

Both English clubs are reportedly willing to pay that figure to bring the 20-year-old to the Premier League - although both Bayern and Barca are said to be keeping an eye on the player's progress also.
