Arsenal could launch a summer bid for £35million-rated RB Leipzig winger Emil Forsberg.

That is according to German outlet Bild, who reckon the Gunners have a good chance of snaring Forsberg away from the Bundesliga.

The forward could have kicked his last ball for Leipzig after being sent off against Hoffenheim, triggering a three-game suspension.

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!”

AC Milan failed in a swoop last summer and Arsenal are unlikely to be the player’s only suitors when the transfer window opens.

The next Arsenal boss will be handed a limited transfer budget this summer.

Arsenal are on the lookout for Arsene Wenger’s replacement after the Frenchman announced this season would be his last in north London on Friday.

Luis Enrique remains the favourite to come in while former midfielder Mikel Arteta has also been linked with the vacant post.
