Arsenal could make a £35million summer move for one star Bundesliga midfielder, reports in Germany claim.

Bild claim that the Gunners have a ‘good chance’ of prising Emil Forsberg away from RB Leipzig this summer.

The creative midfielder could have played his last game for Leipzig after being sent off against Hoffenheim, resulting in a three-game ban.

His agent Hasan Cetinkaya told Bild: “The ban is a scandal! Emil was fouled and provoked, didn’t even hit his opponent properly. The verdict is an attack on RB and Emil. They would not have done such a thing to a Bayern Munich player!”

The 26-year-old is a reported Manchester United target as well, and despite having a deal running until 2022, speculation about an exit has never been far away.

On Monday, he posted a cryptic tweet which simply read: “Thanks for everything,” which sparked further transfer speculation.
