Arsenal remain hopeful signing Atletico Madrid defender Manquillo

Arsenal are turning to Catania fullback Gino Peruzzo as an alternative to Javi Manquillo.

Manquillo remains Gunners boss Arsene Wenger's first-choice right-back option, but talks with Atletico Madrid have stalled.

Wenger wants to buy a young understudy to new senior right-back Mathieu Debuchy.

He is keen on Manquillo, but Atletico refuse to do business over a permanent transfer. A loan deal remains an option, though not favoured by Wenger.

Talks, meanwhile, have opened with Catania for young Argentine Peruzzi.
