Arsenal rival Crystal Palace for Marseille fullback Jordan Amavi

Arsenal are eyeing Olympique Marseille fullback Jordan Amavi.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta recently admitted that his side are 'short' in the position, having let Sead Kolasinac return to Schalke on loan.

Ryan Bertrand has been mentioned as a potential target, although Southampton are 'confident' that the England international will put pen to paper on a new contract at St Mary's.

L'Equipe says Arsenal are among a trio of clubs hoping to lure Amavi away from Marseille in the summer on a free transfer.

To do so they will have to beat off competition from Crystal Palace and Napoli, with the former believed to have shown 'the most interest'.
