Arsenal and Newcastle among clubs interested in Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch

Kicker report that Arsenal, Newcastle United, Roma, Lazio and Napoli are all interested in signing 26-year-old Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch.

The Austria international will not be extending his contract at the Bundesliga club, his current deal is due to expire at the end of the season, and is therefore free to discuss a pre-contract with other clubs.

Milan were unable to agree a reported €10m fee including bonuses with Hoffenheim last summer despite heightened interest from the Serie A club.
