Arsenal locked in transfer talks for Basle defender Schar

Arsenal are closing in on FC Basle defender Fabian Schar.

Fichajes.com says Arsenal are on the brink of landing Swiss defender Schar.

The FC Basle man has been watched on multiple occasions this season and Gunners scouts have sent positive reports back to Arsene Wenger.

With Laurent Koscielny still out, the Arsenal boss is desperately short of cover at the back with Nacho Monreal filling in in recent times.

It is claimed a deal for Schar is likely to be around £9.5million.
