Arsenal taking close look at Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah

Arsenal are taking a close look at Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah leading up to the summer market.

New Gunners boss Mikel Arteta remains on the lookout for a new centre-back despite landing Pablo Mari in January.

RB Leipzig youngster Dayot Upamecano has long been touted as a target amid rival interest from Bayern Munich.

But Bundesliga rival Tah is now on Arsenal's radar, says BILD, was the club consider triggering his £34million release clause.

Tah, 24, is also attracting interest from Atletico Madrid and has made over 150 appearances for Leverkusen, also winning nine caps for Germany since 2016.

The club will have to act by June to activate his release clause, which expires at the end of that month.
