Real Betis fear losing defensive revelation Junior Firpo to Arsenal

Arsenal are eyeing Real Betis prospect Junior Firpo.

The defender only made his Betis debut in February, but was a revelation for Quique Setien's team in the second-half of last season.

AS says his form has attracted interest from Arsenal, where new manager Unai Emery is an admirer.

Junior's current deal runs to 2021 and carries a €25m buyout clause. Betis are pushing his minders to open talks about a new agreement.

The defender can play as a centre-half and left-back.
