Leicester leading Arsenal in race for ex-Southampton left-back Bertrand

Leicester City and Arsenal are among the teams battling to sign Southampton's departing defender Ryan Bertrand.

The veteran left back is not going to renew his contract at the St. Mary's Stadium club.

He will be a free agent and can make a move to any team in the world.

Per Sky Sports, 31-year-old Bertrand wants a new challenge and is of interest to the Foxes.

Arsenal have an interest as well - while Tottenham were linked with a move in January.

Bertrand also has a history with Chelsea, where he came through the youth setup.
