Arsenal face competition from Real Madrid for Villarreal defender Martin Caceres.

El Mundo Deportivo says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been impressed by Caceres' form this season on-loan at Recreativo Huelva, but he isn't alone with Real Madrid also keen on the 20 year-old.

Villarreal are willing to sell the Uruguay international for £15 million, with Recre also due 10 per cent of any fee raised for the defender.
