Arsenal are interested in signing RB Lepzig midfielder Emil Forsberg, according to reports.

The Sweden international has been in fine form this season, helping Lepzig secure a Champions League spot. His form has led to interest from Arsenal and a host of other top clubs.

And Calcio Mercato claim Wenger is prepared to part with £30m to sign the midfielder.

Despite signing a new five year deal in February, his tally of 22 assists and eight goals in all competitions has made it difficult for suitors to take their attention away from him.

Arsenal are not alone in the race to sign the winger and his agent has revealed that a number of top clubs are interested in the 25 year old.

“I will not comment on the clubs involved. There are big clubs who are very interested in Emil. He has made history in Germany. Of course, you know RB want to keep Emil, you need to constantly make sure to keep Emil satisfied,” said the player’s representative to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

“He has paid back the club ten-fold. Maybe it’s time to test himself at a big club,” added Hasan Cetinkaya.

Bayern Munich are believed to be one of those clubs interested in the winger and they are also ready to spend big to secure his services.

Lepzig are determined to keep hold of their best players and will do everything possible to resist approaches for Forsberg, meaning we will have to push hard to sign the Swede. A winger is a priority for us this summer and he can be a good option.
