Arsenal are keeping tabs on £18million-rated Mario Hermoso as Gunners look to strengthen defensive options – reports. Spanish outlet Sport have identified Hermoso as a potential replacement for Shkodran Mustafi.

Espanyol would reportedly be willing to do business for Hermoso for around £18m.
Arsenal could make a move for Roma defender Kostas Manolas this summer. The Greek centre-back has been one of Serie A’s best for several years and has often caught the eye of Premier League clubs. Calciomercato report that Arsenal have held discussions with the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, and they are not put off by his £32million release clause. Arsenal are also in the hunt for a new goalkeeper, with Petr Cech retiring at the end of the season. Reports in Germany say Emery is keen on 20-year-old Markus Schubert, who is leaving Dynamo Dresden this summer. The youngster is available on a free transfer, and the Gunners want him as back-up to Bernd Leno.
