Tottenham, Liverpool, PSG and Borussia Dortmund are also reportedly keen on the 23-year-old.
Meanwhile, Real Sociedad’s Sweden star Alexander Isak is being increasingly linked with the Emirates, despite speculation he could stay in Spain with Real Madrid
Juventus are said to be keen on a part-exchange involving Arsenal’s 19-year-old frontman Folarin Balogun and Gunners’ old boy Aaron Ramsey.
Full-back Bellerin is being monitored by Atletico Madrid, Villarreal and Inter Milan. Aston Villa are tipped to up an initial £25m offer for Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe.
Finally, Arsenal loan hit Martin Odegaard could be on his way out of Real Madrid after all.
