Arsenal lead AC Milan in pursuit of Espanyol holding midfielder Marc Roca

Arsenal are the favourites to sign Marc Roca from Espanyol.

The midfielder is one who could fill a void for the Gunners next season.

Arsenal want a defensive midfielder to anchor the team, and Roca may be a cut price alternative to top target Thomas Partey.

The news of Arsenal's interest in Roca, who is 23 and has a contract until 2022, comes from La Razon.

The publication claims that Espanyol will sell players at lower fees since they are likely to get relegated and are suffering financially due to COVID-19.

Arsenal may swoop in with an offer lower than Roca's release clause of £35 million.

The former Spain U21 international is also interesting Italian giants AC Milan.
