Florian Lejeune: Linked with North London giants

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly tracking Eibar defender Florian Lejeune ahead of a possible summer transfer.

The centre-half, who can also play in midfield, has had an impressive season in La Liga and is said to have a release clause of just £8.7million.

The 25-year-old Frenchman moved to Manchester City from Girona in 2015 but was loaned out before joining Eibar for only £1.3million last summer.

The Daily Mirror claims that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has had Lejeune scouted on a number of occasions, while Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino is looking to add another central defender to his ranks as Kevin Wimmer is expected to move on at the end of the season.
