Arsenal want RB Leipzig defender Lukas Klostermann

Arsenal are interested in signing 20 year old defender Lukas Klostermann from RB Leipzig, according to BILD.

Klostermann, who is part of the German team playing at Rio Olympics 2016, can play in various positions all across the backline. He had been linked with a move to Ajax and Juventus last summer.

Tottenham are also said to be scouting the versatile defender but Arsenal have made the first move and have reportedly told Klostermann’s representatives that they are extremely keen to bring the player to North London.

Arsenal have been on the lookout for a new defender ever since Per Mertesacker picked up a knee injury and have also been strongly linked with a move for German international Shkodran Mustafi.
