The highly-rated 22-year-old has been linked with a number of top clubs in the past, and Arsenal are known to be among his main suitors this winter as they seek improvements at the back.
Schar’s contract is up next summer, meaning he is likely to move for around £10m or even less in the next transfer window, with Basel resigned to losing the player.
With Nacho Monreal filling in at centre-back for the injured Laurent Koscielny, there’s no doubt Schar would make a major upgrade for Arsenal in that position.
