Arsenal are reportedly making moves to land Barcelona’s Sergino Dest as the club seek full-back reinforcements.
The north Londoners are in the midst of a summer overhaul at the club and Hector Bellerin could be one of the men to depart.
A move to Inter Milan is on the cards which would leave the gunners looking for a replacement.
They are one of the multiple clubs who have been tracking Serginio, with Juventus and Bayern Munich also keen.
But Arsenal, according to Sport, have made an approach to snap up the American, who is rated at £25.7m.
Dest has no desire to quit Barcelona having been a starter under Ronald Koeman last season.
However, the Catalan giants are desperate to raise funds as they plan to finalise Lionel Messi’s new deal and register new signings.
Arsenal meantime are in the midst of negotiating with multiple players and they look to bounce back from a poor campaign.
They have completed the £17 million signing of Anderlecht midfielder Sambi Lokonga.
A £50m sum has also been agreed with Brighton for defender Ben White with a medical booked for later this month.
William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi have both left north London on loan whilst Granit Xhaka is poised to seal a move to Roma.
Arsenal are continuing their pre-season campaign and battled to a draw with the Scottish club Rangers at the weekend.
