Arsenal may have joined Manchester United in the race for Basel defender Fabian Schar.
United have been linked with a double swoop for Schar and his teammate Mohamed Salah but the Gunners also appear to be interested in the 21-year-old centre-half, according to his representative Dimitrios Papdopoulos.
“He is happy at Basle, where there is a great atmosphere within the club,’ said Papadopoulos.
“Arsenal? I can confirm we have had contact with English clubs who want to sign him.
“There is also interest from Italian and German clubs, but we have more contact from England.”
Schar has been on great form for Basel this season, including playing both matches against Chelsea in the Champions League group stage.
