Benjamin Pavard tells Stuttgart: Sell me to Arsenal

Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard WANTS to make the move to Arsenal.

The Daily Star says Pavard has told the club he wants to sign for Arsenal this summer.

The Gunners are interested in the France international, who will be at the World Cup in Russia.

Pavard, 22, is primarily a right-back but impressed at centre-half throughout the Bundesliga season.

Unai Emery's side are expected to strengthen at the back following Laurent Koscieny's long-term ankle injury and Per Mertesacker's retirement.

Pavard, who is valued at £44m, has informed Stuttgart of his desire to switch Germany for England amid Arsenal's interest.
