Arsenal are reportedly ready to battle Sevilla in a £20m rapid race to sign Ibrahima Diallo who has been tipped as the next N'Golo Kante.
Diallo has been breakout player for French club Brest this season and his performances have been put on the radar of some top clubs across Europe.
The Gunners have allegedly been monitoring his performances this season and have picked him as a player who could make a difference in their midfield.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is on the hunt for young, hungry and focused players and believes Diallo is the perfect fit.
However, if they make a move for Diallo; Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira's long-term futures at the club will be brought to question, perhaps suggesting potential departures.
