Brest midfielder Ibrahim Diallo a target for Arsenal, Sevilla

Brest midfielder Ibrahim Diallo is a target for Arsenal.

The Daily Star says Arsenal have entered the race to sign Diallo.

The defensive midfielder has been a stand-out performer for Ligue 1 outfit Brest this season - making 22 appearances before the campaign was suspended.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has draw comparisons with Chelsea's N'Golo Kante and has been scouted by Arsenal on several occasions this season.

Leicester, Everton and Nice have expressed interest, but Sevilla have jumped to the front of the queue having opened talks with the player's representatives.

But Gunners manager Mikel Arteta also wants Diallo at the Emirates Stadium and are considering a formal approach.
